Selecting Acceptance Criteria for Regulatory Method Validation

Analytical methods should be validated to ensure reliability, consistency and accuracy of analytical data. Method validation has been a requirement of FDA and international regulations since many years. Most often the theory is well understood and there is some official information from USP and ICH about parameters and test procedures. However there is hardly any such official information available for setting acceptance criteria. So the industry has lots of questions.

Key Questions related to Analytical Method Validation are:

  • What are FDA and international requirements?
  • Where can i find official acceptance criteria for method validation, method transfer and verification of compendial methods?
  • Which parameters must be evaluated for different applications, e.g., quantitative impurities in drugs, limit tests and assays
  • FDA requires methods to be suitable for their intended use: how to define, justify and document such suitability?
  • USP <1224> recommends comparative testing for method transfer, the type of and extend of tests should be based on risk, what does this mean in practice?
  • What are meaningful acceptance criteria for method transfer?
  • USP <1226> recommends to base the type and extend of test for verification of compendial methods on risk. what are acceptable tests and acceptance criteria?

How does the audio seminar help:

Answers will be presented by Dr. Ludwig Huber in a new interactive audio seminar. During the seminar, the speaker will present strategies and go through several case studies for method validation, transfer of analytical methods and verification of compendial methods . After the seminar, an extensive list of reference material like SOPs, and inspection ready templates  are available to ensure immediate and cost effective implementation.

During the interactive presentation you learn about:

  • FDA and international requirements
  • Recommendations for parameters and test procedures from ICH and USP
  • Defining the minimum number of validation experiments that satisfy ICH, FDA and USP
  • Test conditions for method validation according to ICH Q2
  • Source data for test limits
  • Tests and acceptance criteria for transfer of analytical methods to comply with FDA: method must be suitable for it's intended use
  • Tests and acceptance criteria for verification of compendial methods  to comply with the FDA requirement: method must be suitable for it's intended use
  • Considerations for biological (large molecule based) drugs
  • Considerations for tests and acceptance criteria of biological and biosimilar drugs
  • Documenting and justification for FDA and other inspectors
  • Going through case studies
  • Using the inspection ready examples
