Practical Risk Assessment in Laboratories: Step-by-Step

With Risk Master Plan, SOPs and Case Studies for Easy Implementation



Order Button

Since several years regulatory expectations and industry have been switching from 100% validation for everything to risk based compliance. While the principles of risk management are understood in industry and partly implemented in pharmaceutical and device manufacturing this is not the case for  analytical and quality control laboratories, This is a pity because laboratories miss an opportunity to be more effective, but there are also lots of question:. 

Key Questions related to risk assessment in laboratories

  • What are the exact requirements of FDA and international agencies?
  • What are the expectations of inspectors?
  • We have a good understanding on the theory, but are there real examples?
  • Our company applies risk assessment strategies to manufacturiing, but what are recommendations for laboraties?
  • What laboratory operations are most suitable for cost effective risk based methodologies?
  • How to objectively define risk categories: high, medium, low?
  • How to document the outcome of risk assessment?
  • What if the inspectors don't agree with our risk assessment?
  • Are there good case studies for typical laboratory tasks?
  • What type of documents should we develop?

How does the audio seminar help:

Answers will be presented by Dr. Ludwig Huber in a new interactive audio seminar. Using simple practical examples from day-by-day the complete risk management process will be explained step-by-step. Then the same methodology will be applied to most suitable laboratory operations.  After the seminar, an extensive list of reference material like SOPs, templates, forms  examples and several case studies will help immediate and cost effective implementation.

During the interactive presentation you learn about:

  • FDA and international requirements
  • Guidance documents from authorities, standard committees and industry task forces
  • Going through ICH Q9: The reference document for (bio)pharmaceutical industry
  • Documents to be developed by laboratories:
  • Step-by-step implementation: Identification, analysis, evaluation, mitigation, review
  • Justification and documentation of the outcome for FDA and management
  • Applying risk assessment for method validation, method verification and and transfer
  • Optimizing system validation and revalidation using risk methodologies
  • Application of risk assessment for handling OOS situations
  • Using risk assessment strategies during supplier assessment
