Course "Validations and Resolving Problems Related to Them" has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant's RAC recertification upon full completion.


This course is designed for people who are growing in their knowledge of pharmaceutical industry practices and regulations. It will be a "how to" course where the instructors will explain the reasoning as well as the procedures that should be used to meet the various requirements of pharmaceutical regulations as they are applied to validations. The instructors will present different areas of study and present them with a "how to" approach so that the seminar participant can see how the subject matter applies to the participant's work either now or in the future. In addition to discussing the particular subjects they will explain how pharmaceutical regulatory requirements can be met when conducting the work. Each instructor has decades of experience in working with and within the regulated pharmaceutical industry in the US. They will be covering topics that they are familiar with and will present them in a manner aimed at workers who may have been introduced to basic pharmaceutical practices and regulations, and now wish to expand their knowledge base.

Why should you attend:

Any pharmaceutical worker who performs, supervises or reviews development and manufacturing processes needs to develop a full understanding of validations and the methods for performing validation studies. This is particularly true for workers in Regulatory Affairs, Quality Control and Quality Assurance as many of the required studies and their documentation will be assigned to them. All workers who supervise or execute development and manufacturing processes should have a firm understanding of pharmaceutical validations and their regulatory requirements as these will become a routine part of pharmaceutical development and manufacturing for all types of medicinal products, and must become a part of the body of knowledge possessed by senior workers.

Who Will Benefit:

  • Directors
  • Managers
  • Supervisors, and lead workers in Product and Process Development
  • Manufacturing
  • Regulatory Affairs
  • Quality Assurance and Quality Control
  • Workers who will be participating in operations or the supervision of the development
  • manufacturing, or testing of medicinal products will benefit from knowing the procedures and applications of various areas of pharmaceutical regulations.
