Suppliers of pharmaceutical manufacturing equipment must ensure that their equipment is provided to their customers in a validatable state. Written in simple, clear, and concise language that gets past all the regulationese, this book covers the basics of validation, planning process equipment design and construction, documentation requirements, avoiding validation pitfalls, and the types of services the supplier should provide. The book provides insights on how to avoid the costly and time-consuming problem of reworking the equipment to develop the information that is needed to successfully complete their validation package - after the equipment has been delivered and installed. Here in one volume is all the information suppliers and manufacturers need to be able to effectively conduct business in a cost- and time-effective manner.

Key areas of discussion include:
o Validation and GMP issues
o Why validation is so important to pharmaceutical manufacturers
o The role of equipment suppliers in supporting validation
o How validation affects the quality of drugs
o A discussion of the importance of each phase of validation
o Examples of pre-validation work

& construction
o Questions to ask about validation, including a checklist
o Regulations in plain language, including the terms and vocabulary
