Visual inspection continues to be an important element of the manufacturing process and the quality assurance of injectable products. Product inspection provides necessary information for lot release, and, coupled with defect identification, contributes to a strategy of continuous process improvement. Past topics have included selection and qualification of human inspectors, validation of automated inspection systems, recent regulatory activity and country specific inspection requirements.
The 2013 PDA Visual Inspection Forum will provide interactive case studies, explore USP<790> - a new draft chapter in development for visual inspection, and discuss new developments in the field of visual inspection, including contributions to a basic understanding of the sampling and inspection process, practical aspects of manual and automated methods, and the regulatory and compendial requirements that govern.
The meeting will feature an exhibition where attendees can see the latest in commercial inspection hardware and discuss production needs with key suppliers of inspection systems and services.
