The two day workshop on Pharmaceutical Validation - Latest Global Regulations and Trends to Stay Compliant, is designed to provide an in-depth understanding of the concept of pharmaceutical validations based on the current FDA, EU and ICH guidance documents as well as learnings from the pharmaceutical industry. Special emphasis will be laid on practical approach and simple illustrative examples from the industry for judicious and effective implementation.

A successful validation program depends on proper planning & execution through protocols. Preparation of a 'Validation Master Plan' and 'Validation Protocol' as well as types of records required to demonstrate successful validation will also be presented. This program will cover issues specific to both APIs and Oral Solid Dosage forms and is designed to focus on implementation in work place.

This approach is expected to bring in an element of robustness into the manufacturing process and quality system. Risk management and statistical tools are being used in leading pharmaceutical industry worldwide and is recommended by regulatory agencies in order to gain high level of confidence in the quality of drugs as well as to achieve continuous improvement.

The participants will be exposed to the latest concepts and thinking of international regulatory agencies on validation of manufacturing process, analytical as well as cleaning methods applicable in API & Oral Solid Dosage forms manufacturing. based on assessed risk. The workshop will also include typical examples from the industry and the participants will be able to execute validations in a judicious manner.  .
