Are you trying to interpret and understand what validation means? If you read regulatory requirements, either European, American or other countries, does it still leave you puzzled?
It could be that you’re new to the company, role or indeed work for a supplier needing to appreciate what validation means for you and your customers.
The first day of the Understanding Validation Training Course, provides an introduction to help you understand what validation means to the healthcare manufacturing industry. The second day provides an oversight of engineering project activities, deliverables, and documentation. A further explanation is given on how risk management can be utilised throughout the equipment/system life-cycle.
Previous course participants have included people from pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers and also suppliers to the industry.
