Programme overview

This course is designed to provide a detailed understanding of equipment validation for regulated industries. If you purchase or develop a new piece of equipment that is used to manufacture medical devices, in-vitro medical devices, or pharmaceutical products EU and FDA regulations require that firms have a quality system programme in place for the following•

  • Calibration and maintenance of equipment
  • When equipment is installed it must be done correctly against best industry practice to ensure it operates as intended against URS ( User Requirement Specification), FDS ( Functional Design Specification), and to ensure proper SAT (Site Acceptance Testing) and FAT (Factory Acceptance Testing) is completed.
  • This equipment must pass through the above toll gates to be considered ready for PQ
    ( Performance Qualification) testing and generation of a design space for that process. This design space must consider the key inputs to the process which can be developed by carrying out the design of experiments using Orthogonal arrays.
  • You then must guarantee reproducibility of the process by carrying out validation studies with this equipment.

We can deliver a shorter tailored programme at our centre in Athlone for you/ or on-site if you have injection moulding capability there.
