Validation Standard Operating Procedures: A Step by Step Guide for Achieving Compliance in the Pharmaceutical, Medical Device, and Biotech Industries

Front Cover
CRC Press, Dec 27, 2001 - Business & Economics - 496 pages
One of the most common reasons so many new drug, medical device, or equipment applications are rejected each year by the FDA is the failure to properly develop and document plans and procedures. This is required of both U.S. and foreign companies wishing to market their products in the United States. The lack of well defined validation standard operating procedures may result in adverse FDA findings, recalls, and heavy financial losses. Key FDA guidelines on good manufacturing practice (GMP), good laboratory practice (GLP), and validation do not describe exactly how to develop a master validation plan, how to achieve compliance, or the standard operating procedures and documentation required.

This text provides the required validation standard operating procedures and documentation necessary for achieving compliance in the pharmaceutical industry. The text and CD are designed to minimize workload and optimize time, money, and resources. A comprehensive when-and-how-to-do-it guide, Validation Standard Operating Procedures provides the needed administrative solutions and guidance for achieving compliance with FDA requirements, and for obtaining authorization to market products in the United States.

The CD-ROM contains 74 template validation standard operating procedures that can be tailored to meet the regulatory compliance requirements of any pharmaceutical, diagnostic, medical device, medical equipment, and biotech product. You can edit, print, and customize these procedures to fit your needs. The book and CD work together to minimize the number of documents used and to ensure their accuracy. All critical elements and requirements of validation are covered, so you can easily implement them and avoid the stress that usually accompanies an FDA audit.
