Conference Compendium

19th Annual Validation Week

Validation Week is the forefront of promoting good validation practice for the last three decades. Today, new global regulations, technology advances and industry case models have shaped how to develop, implement and deploy validation procedures company-wide. Validation Week is a three-day event covering validation from A to Z, including; process, computer, equipment, method, facility, cleaning, and much more.

Topics included in the 19th Annual Validation Week compendium include outlining global regulations, including FDA’s Process Validation Guidance; methodologies for streamlining the validation process; developing a process validation roadmap; developing acceptance criteria for process validation; utilizing quality virtual networks and cloud computing.
