Recorded, available with all reference material at any time

Order Button

Recent regulatory guidance documents and industry task forces promote regular periodic review as more effective and compliant alternatives to time based revalidation. For example, the most recent FDA Guidance document on analytical method validation does not say a single word about 'regular' revalidation. And the PDA report on Analytical Method Validation recommends reviewing periodically historically data to ensure continuous validated state and controlled method performance. While the benefits of regular methods reviews are are well understood the process is not widely used because of limited experience and missing guidelines for implementation.

Key Questions related to Periodic  Reviews of Analytical methods are:

  • We revalidate all our methods every year, and we revalidate after changes, why should we review?
  • What are exact FDA and international requirements?
  • What are the benefits of periodic review?
  • Does periodic method validation review substitute regular revalidation?
  • What is the recommended frequency reviews: 6, 12, 24 months, or less?
  • What events trigger periodic review, method change control, system suitability failures, OOS situations, others?
  • Where to get inputs for periodic reviews?
  • Who should be responsible for the review?
  • Which information and data are required for the review?
  • How long does a review meeting take?
  • What are possible action items following a review?
