  1. Deliverables (documents) to be generated during the validation process.
  2. Resources, departments, and personnel to participate in the validation project.
  3. Time-lines for completing the validation project.
  4. Acceptance criteria to confirm that the system meets defined requirements.

WHO guideline on process validation?

961, Annex 6 (3).) A risk‑based and life‑cycle approach to validation is recommended. Thorough knowledge of product and process development studies; previous manufacturing experience; and QRM principles are essential in all approaches to process validation, as the focus is now on the life‑cycle approach.

Is a validation master plan required?

Although, by FDA Quality System Regulation (21 CFR 820), Validation Master Plan (VMP) does not require a formal prerequisite. However, it is beneficial to have a top quality VMP to execute an efficient procedure validation program.

What is the difference between a validation master plan and a validation plan?

A VMP is a foundational document that helps to achieve this goal by documenting compliance requirements and detailing necessary validation activities across a site or facility. In this regard, the VMP is different than validation plans written for a single validation project.

How does process validation contribute to quality assurance?

Effective process validation contributes significantly to assuring drug quality. The basic principle of quality assurance is that a drug should be produced that is fit for its intended use. This principle incorporates the understanding that the following conditions exist: Quality, safety, and efficacy are designed or built into the product.
