Good housekeeping – qualification and documentation

Quality and safety have utmost priority in pharmaceutical production. Professional, complete documentation is a ‘must’. Documentation is based on the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) requirements or the GAMP (Good Automated Manufacturing Practices) directive.

Our experts have extensive experience also in this area and assist you as our customer in the preparation of all required documents. All qualification documents are maintained in a database and updated regularly. Qualification proceeds in three phases:

  • Design Qualification (DQ)
  • Installation Qualification (IQ)
  • Operational Qualification (OQ)

If you wish, we can also assist you during performance qualification (PQ).
