Furthermore, find out what process validation has to do with PQ, IQ, and OQ.
In general, validation is the "confirmation, through the provision of objective evidence, that the requirements for a specific intended use or application have been fulfilled" [ISO 9015].
It checks for the integrity and validity of data that is being inputted to different software and its components.
Data validation ensures that the data complies with the requirements and quality benchmarks. Data validation primarily helps in ensuring that the data sent to connected applications is complete, accurate, secure and consistent.
This approach to validation is normally undertaken whenever the process for a new formula (or within a new facility) must be validated before routine pharmaceutical production commences.
These rules are generally defined in a data dictionary or are implemented through data validation software.The standard remarks that the objective evidence necessary for validation is the result of a test or of another type of determination such as, for example, alternative calculations.As for the definition of the term "process", ISO 13485, again, refers to ISO 9015.“ The Global Harmonization Task Force GHTF, which no longer exists, has published the document GHTF SG 3 NB 04 now "administered" by IMDRF.Likewise, the Central Authority of the Länder ZLG has published a document labeled ZLG 3.9 B 18 and titled "Validation of Processes of Production and Providing Services (including Software)".
