Medical Device Process Validation: Level 1

This Level 1 training course provides the basics of Process Validation as initiated by the Global Harmonization Task Force document on Process Validation. This document is considered to be the cornerstone for medical devices’ process validation strategy and focuses on the general applicability to manufacturing (including service and installation) processes for medical devices.

Course Topics Include:

  • Definitions: Installation Qualification (IQ), Operational Qualification (OQ), and Performance Qualification (PQ)
  • Verification versus Validation
  • Statistical Methods and Tools

MedAccred Process Validation audit criteria have been developed and are being included in all MedAccred Task Group audit criteria to ensure suppliers have the capability and objective evidence to handle process validation. It is therefore essential that all MedAccred stakeholders be knowledgeable in this methodology.

Who should attend?

  • MedAccred Auditors
  • Staff Engineers
  • Task Group Members

Additional Process Validation training courses will be offered in the near future, covering the following topics:

  • Level 2 expands the Level 1 GHTF training with examples, discusses the essence for elements of establishing the “process” for process validation, expands on statistical approaches, and presents the recent regulatory direction emphasizing the “risk based” approach, verification-versus-validation, the movement toward continuous verification/validation, and process validation issues from recent FDA auditing.
  • Level 3 concentrates on how unique technologies (such as Injection Molding and the SMT fabrication process) provide a common-based Process Validation approach for those technologies.
