VALIDATION MASTER PLAN(VMP)
The concept of validation was first proposed
and Drug Administration (FDA) officials, in1979s
Definition : Validation is a written
documented process for establishing
documentary evidence demonstrating a
procedure, process, or activity of a
4. TYPES OF VALIDATION
The major types of Validation :
1. Process Validation
2. Cleaning validation
3. Equipment validation
4. Validation of analytical methods
5. o 1. Process Validation : In process validation,
the collection of data from the process design
stage throughout production, which setup a report.
o Its are four types.
6. o 2. Cleaning Validation:
Cleaning validation is the methodology used to
assure that a cleaning process removes residues of
the active pharmaceutical ingredients(API) of the
product manufactured from the equipment.
The U.S. Food and Drug Adminstration (FDA)
has strict regulation about the cleaning validation.
7. o3. Equipment Validation:
Equipment validation is done for any
equipment works correctly or checked that it may
leads to the expected result as pre-determined.
It is not a single step activity.
o 4. Validation of analytical methods:
In product manufacture have various analytical
methods, which are to be validated for get good
assurence of product.
8. SCOPES OF VALIDATION
Involvement of management and quality
A written report outcome.
Significant changes (facilities, equipment,
processes) -should be validated.
Validation should be performed:–for new
premises, equipment, utilities and systems, and
procedures ,when major changes have been
made on it.
9. NEEDS OF VALIDATION:
Decrease the risk of manufacturing.
Assures the fluency of production.
During the process the knowledge of process
Control production cost.
Reduces the chances of product recall from the
Make process better understood.
Increases patients compliance.
10. VALIDATION MASTER PLAN
The validation master plan (VMP) should reflect
the key elements of the validation program. It
should be concise and clear contain of the
• a validation policy.
• Planning and scheduling.
• Documents format use for validation.
• Change in control.
• Reference to existing documents.
At the conclusion of validation activities, a
final report should be prepared. This report
should summarize and reference all protocols
and results of a process.
By validation report, we can produce a product
at pre-determined level of quality.
