Lifecycle Approach of Analytical Procedures*

The validation of analytical procedures is a critical part of any process for ensuring drug quality. Since 2014, USP’s Validation and Verification Expert Panel has been considering how the modern concept of lifecycle model process validation can be applied to analytical procedures. This conference, co-sponsored by European Compliance Academy (ECA), will address how USP’s proposed vision for the development of a new general chapter aligns with the principles of US FDA and EU Annex 15 guidance on process validation and analytical quality by design. This covers design, development, qualification, transfer and verification.

Through presentations, case studies and open discussions, participants will learn more about the lifecycle management of analytical procedures and participate in a forum for discussing USP’s new general chapter and Stimuli articles related to this topic. Participants will have the opportunity to give feedback and ask questions directly to USP’s Expert Panel Members on how to move forward with the transition to and implementation of the lifecycle approach.
