Qualification And Validation

Qualification and Validation are integral part of Pharmaceutical and Healthcare projects. They are done to give a high level of assurance to the inspection authorities. In general they are defined as below,

Qualification – The documented verification that all aspects of facility, utility or equipment that can affect product quality.

IQ – adhere to approved specifications (e.g, Construction and Materials) and are correctly INSTALLED.
OQ – OPERATE as intended throughout all anticipated ranges.
PQ – PERFORMED as intended meeting acceptance criteria.

Validation (FDA)


Establishing documented evidence which proves a high degree of assurance that a specific process will consistently produce a product meeting its predetermined specifications and quality attributes.
