Principles of Equipment Qualification
A Guide for Drug and Device Manufacturers

The FDA and EMA both stress the importance of equipment qualification.

If you can’t prove that your equipment, operations and processes all work the way they’re supposed to, you can’t reliably produce a quality product and pass regulatory muster.

This report — authored by international GMP expert Thomas Peither and associates — lays out the basics of building a four-phase qualification plan… design qualification, installation qualification, operational qualification and performance qualification… that satisfies US and EU requirements. It covers:

  • Building a qualification team

  • Formulating a qualification plan

  • Documenting qualification results

  • Using risk analysis methods to evaluate equipment’s impact on the manufacturing process

The following bonus materials are included in the report:

  • Instructive diagrams

  • Checklists for carrying out a qualification plan

  • FDA guidance Principles of Process Validation and

  • EU GMP guidelines’ Annex 15, Qualification and Validation.

Order your copy of Principles of Equipment Qualification and understand the four phases of qualification.
