Understanding the Final FDA Guidance for Validation of Analytical Methods


Recently the FDA has released a new comprehensive guidance for validation of analytical methods. The guidance applies the modern integrated lifecycle approach with related new requirements for using quality-by-design components, risk assessment, design space and continuous improvement. The guidance will significantly change the way in which FDA regulated methods will be developed, validated and used. Because of the novelty of some of the concepts, the industry has difficulties to implement the guidance. The seminar will make it easy to understand and implement the guidance.

For easy implementation, attendees will receive:

  • 2 SOPs
  • Validation of Analytical Methods
  • Verification of Compendial Methods
  • Checklist
  • Validation of Analytical Methods according to the new FDA Guidance
Areas Covered in the Session :

  • Key differences to the existing and the new guidance
  • Scope and content of the guidance
  • Going through validation parameters, tests, and acceptance criteria
  • Comparison with ICH Q2
  • Lifecycle management of analytical procedures
  • Periodic review and revalidation
  • Verification of compendial methods
  • Analytical method comparability studies for alternative procedures
  • Method transfer studies
  • Development experiments that should be conducted under GMP conditions
  • Application of QbD components: design space, multivariate experiments, risk assessment
  • Documentation requirements
  • Reporting post-marketing changes to an approved method
