About the Course

Learn the fundamentals of quality assurance, quality control, and analytical methods validation and how to improve your FDA, WHO and USP regulatory compliance directives for analytical data submissions. Areas of concentration include conformity assessment; analytical method optimization during development; case studies in the improvement of validation characteristics; data integrity and statistical evaluation of analytical data; and more.

  • Highlights of the guidelines derived from international standards-ICH Q1 (R2), ICH Q2 R1, Q3, USP <1225>, USP <1226>, USP <1224>, GLP, GMP, etc.
  • Conformity assessment – what it is, how it is applied.
  • Analytical method optimization during development.
  •  Case studies in the improvement of validation characteristics.
  • Method development and optimization in HPLC.
  • ICH and USP guidelines for methods validation and other standards.
  •  Regulatory submission packages for IND, NDA, ANDA and other phases of development.

What You Will Learn

  • Increase your knowledge of conformity assessment, quality control, and quality assurance.
  • Consult with a knowledgeable instructor about your current technical problems and preparation and requirements for submission of regulatory packages (NDA, ANDA, IND, MMA and others for FDA & USP).
  • Become acquainted with practical approaches for validating new analytical procedures.
  • Be exposed to the latest international requirements and guidelines: ICH, USP & FDA guidelines for analytical validation.
  • Learn about the FDA’s new initiatives in systems-based inspection and risk-based assessment.
  • Understand the training and supervision requirements of chemists and technicians and other lab personnel for GXP.
  • Receive helpful hints to help prepare you for a visit from an auditor’s perspective.
  • Participate in discussions on cGXP and WHO requirements and expectations.
  • Learn about general validation and qualification requirements for analytical instruments.

Who Should Attend

Scientists, managers, and technicians involved in methods validation and optimization, analytical research and development, meeting FDA requirements and regulations, validating analytical methods, application of newer analytical methods, and those involved in quality control, quality assurance, and quality assessment.
