With SOPs, Templates and Examples for easy Implementation

Recorded, available with all reference material at any time

Order Button

The first version of USP <1058> has been released in 2008. Since then it has evolved to the global standard for analytical instrument qualification. In August 2017 a new revision has been released with many new requirements mainly addressing the needs of quality systems, e.g., risk based implementation, quality agreements between service/system providers and users, and regular reviews to ensure ongoing performance and more. This seminar will discuss all details and give strategies and case studies for easy implementation.

Key Questions related to the new USP <1058> revision

  • What are the changes of the new revision to the existing chapter?
  • When will the new revision be enforced by the FDA?
  • Which sections of our 1058 SOPs do we need to change and how?
  • When is 1058 mandatory, even so the chapter number is above 1000?
  • How can we apply 1058 to laboratory computer systems?
  • The new revision has more details on the four qualification phases: what exactly should be in each phase: DQ, IQ, OQ, PQ?
  • How to address quality system requirements such as risk based type and extend of testing, developing quality agreements with suppliers and service providers, and regular review to maintain ongoing performance?
  • Does the revision answer the question: What and how much should be tested?
  • What to do for integrated systems comprising equipment and computers?
  • Does the  revision also apply to software frequently used in laboratories, for example, Excel spreadsheets?
  • Who is accountable for the qualification and validation
  • How to implement the new rchapter most effectively?
  • When is the final version coming and what will there be major changes

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 an overview and give practical recommendations.
