Commissioning & Qualification

Commissioning, Qualification, Operations & Retirement

The GxP guidelines require a science and risk based life cycle approach for processes, installations and instruments. In other words, an essential part of process validation is demonstrating that the systems used (technical installation, equipment, software) are "under control throughout the life cycle.

In the life cycle of a system, we distinguish:
  • Design
  • Development and installation
  • Initial commissioning
  • Qualification
  • Operational use
  • Decommissioning
We can advice and assist you during all these phases: taking into account current industry practices and the latest developments in GxP supplemented with years of practical experience.

Commissioning processes

  • checklist for inspections beforehand
