On-line Audio Seminar 171

Verification of Compendial Methods

Understanding and Implementing the New USP Chapter <1226>


Order Button

Compendial methods such as USP standards are validated by the organization that has developed and published the method. The FDA requires users of such methods to demonstrate the user's competence to successfully run the method. For example, 21 CFR 211.194 (a) states: The suitability of all testing methods used shall be verified under actual conditions of use. However, the FDA does not give any further guidance on how to do and document this. The USP has developed a chapter about the verification of compendial methods. It is well known that FDA inspectors require USP standards or equivalent procedures to follow. Therefore pharmaceutical companies are advised to learn about the new chapter and about FDA's interpretation. When implemented right the standard also helps to reduce overall costs for implementing USP methods. Therefore there is lots of interest in learning about the new chapter.

Key Questions are:

  • What are FDA and international requirements for compendial methods?
  • What and how much should be tested?
  • Do all compendial routine methods require verification?
  • Should we verify all performance characteristics?
  • How much can we deviate from the compendial method without the need for a full revalidation?
  • What to do if I the compendial procedure can not be verified?
  • How frequently should compendial methods be re-verified?
  • What if our equipment was not included in the USP method validation experiments

How does the this audio seminar help:

Answers will be presented by Dr. Ludwig Huber in a new interactive audio seminar. During the seminar, the speaker will present the requirements for method verification and give practical recommendations. After the seminar, an extensive list of reference material like SOPs, worksheets, templates and examples will help immediate and cost effective implementation.

During the interactive presentation you learn about:

  • FDA and international requirements
  • The background on scope of USP <1226>
  • Status and timeline for implementation
  • Compendial methods not requiring verification
  • USP <1226> requirements
  • The USP high level verification process
  • Risk based approach for testing
  • Criteria and examples for degree and extent of the verification
  • Performance characteristics for verification
  • Elements for verification for different instruments
  • Verification for drug substances and dosage forms
  • Acceptance criteria for verification testing
  • Handling deviations
  • Investigating non-performance: root cause and corrective actions
  • Documenting the verification experiments and results
  • Typical costs of method verification
