ComplianceOnline Announces Seminar on Validation, Verification and Transfer of Analytical Methods

"Validation, Verification and Transfer of Analytical Methods (Guidelines from FDA/EMA, USP and ICH)" Seminar has been added to's offering.

SAN JOSE, CA, USA, March 15, 2021 / — ComplianceOnline, the largest GRC network, has organized a seminar on the topic ‘Validation, Verification, and Transfer of Analytical Methods’ to provide an understanding of implementing guidelines from FDA/EMA, USP, and ICH to Laboratory Personnel. The event will be held on March 25-26, 2021 (10:00 AM to 5:00 PM EDT) and will be presented by Dr. Mark Powell, Director, Mark Powell Scientific Limited.

Analytical methods used for GxP purposes should be validated to ensure the reliability, consistency and accuracy of analytical data. Compendial methods should be verified to demonstrate the suitability of laboratories to successfully run the method and when methods are transferred between laboratories successful transfer should be demonstrated through testing or a transfer waiver, if justified. If a laboratory uses an alternative method instead of a compendial method, equivalence or superiority of the alternative method should be demonstrated.

Recent guidance on method validation and transfer has been produced by FDA and EMA, and USP has guidance chapters on method validation, verification and transfer, equivalence testing and statistical evaluation. Articles in US Pharmacopeial Forum have introduced the concepts of measurement uncertainty and lifecycle management for analytical procedures. Lifecycle management has also been the subject of recent FDA and ICH publications.

This 2-day seminar will help attendees to understand regulatory requirements for method validation, verification and transfer. It will also suggest ways to de-risk the method validation process through prior evaluation of method performance and the use of effective protocols.

Learning Objectives:
• Understand the regulatory requirements for validation of analytical methods.
