Validation / Qualification in the Cannabis industry is the documented evidence, with a high degree of assurance, that any cannabis-related processes, systems (facilities, equipment, and software), GPP procedures, and analytical testing methods comply with acceptable specifications and regulatory requirements.
Apart from the regulatory obligations, cannabis companies are subjected to rationalized, robust, and risk-based validation approaches to significantly decrease the errors, contaminations, defects, customer dissatisfaction, non-complaints, recalls, return, destruction, and expense of routine tests and analysis while increasing trust, high quality, standards, regulatory compliance, revenue and profit in the long run.
NACPT validation webinars cover the verification, qualification, and validation processes and systems aligned with Health Canada, FDA, and European health authority’s requirements to meet consistency, repeatability, and reliability standards for improved product quality, safety, and efficacy.
The webinars also include Validation Plan (VP), Master Validation Plan (MVP) or Validation Master Plan (VMP), Design Qualification (DQ), Installation Qualification (IQ), Operational Qualification (OQ), Performance Qualification (PQ), Computerized System Validation (CSV), Cleaning Validation (CV) and Process Performance Qualification (PPQ) required to create validation projects for a typical cannabis facility.
