This new course is designed to teach students the techniques for effective qualification and validation of sterile drug product manufacturing systems. It will use a combination of lecture and hands-on application at the PDA Training and Research Institute and will make extensive use of the Aseptic Processing Suite. Instructors will walk students through the planning, protocol development, execution, and troubleshooting of the qualification of various drug product manufacturing systems, including critical utilities, formulation/compounding, component parts sterilization, filling, and packaging. Lectures and case studies will provide the student the regulatory expectations, industry trends, and best practices for qualification and validation of sterile drug product manufacturing systems utilizing modern risk and science-based decision making approaches.
If you are involved with the planning, documentation, execution, or review of sterile drug product manufacturing system qualification and validation for capital projects or on-going facility operation and remediation, this hands-on course will provide essential knowledge and training in the approaches needed to successfully perform those functions.
Individuals involved directly with the planning, protocol development, field execution, or quality management Commissioning, Qualification, and/or Validation of manufacturing equipment, facilities, and systems utilized in the manufacture of sterile pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical products – including:
