A one-day meeting on visual inspection will be held in Bethesda, MD on April 25, 2018. This will be in addition to the usual sessions held as part of the PDA Annual Meeting and PDA/FDA Joint Regulatory Conference. This format offers the opportunity for extended discussion on hot topics in the field of visual inspection. Our current plan is to identify a limited number of topics for discussion to allow a thorough review. We will provide an overview of each topic and the issues which are of interest and concern. We will then discuss and develop possible solutions to these challenging issues. We welcome your suggestions on topics of interest to you in advance of this meeting.

Learning Objectives:

At the completion of this workshop, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify unique testing requirements for difficult to inspect products found in USP <790> such as suspensions, freeze dried powders, colored solutions, biopharmaceuticals with inherent particles and those products in non-transparent containers
  • Develop practical implementation strategies for automated inspection methods
  • Understand the current proposal to revise EC Annex 1 and the requirements for visual inspection and container integrity testing found there
