GMP07002 2013 COMPLIANCE AUDITING AND VALIDATION
This module introduces the regulatory requirement for GMP & compliance auditing, and the tools required by an effective auditor. It introduces CAPA and change control theory and practice. Additionally this course outlines the various aspects of process and support systems validation utilised in pharmaceutical facilities. It will deal with the various risks inherent in pharmaceutical processing technologies and how the application of effective validation methodologies assists in the control and management of such risks.
On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;
Interpret and explain the relevance of auditing as a means of monitoring the production of safe and efficacious pharmaceutical products in a GMP environment.
Describe the various auditing techniques available and the regulatory basis for GMP/compliance auditing and describe the concept of calibration.
Perform a systematic and independent examination of the effectiveness of a pharmaceutical quality system and contribute to and participate in a multidisciplinary team of auditors within a GMP environment.
Identify, assess and analyse breaches of GMP, change control and select appropriate CAPA activities.
Describe the key elements and methodologies utilised for validation with particular emphasis on pharmaceutical processes and the product life cycle including CPP & CQA.
Outline the overall concept of risk management and how the application of risk assessment and management tools can enable these risks to be gauged and managed.
Compare the main steps involved in the qualification of pharmaceutical equipment, integrating processing equipment, cleaning systems, filtration systems.
Examine the main steps involved in the validation of ancillary service facilities and utilities such as cleanrooms, sterilisation and Purified water systems.
Appraise and interpret the main elements of ICH method validation and GAMP - MIS validation
