Since the requirement for test method validation appeared in the GMPs in 1978 the industry has considered that test method validation is a one-time event in the life of a test method. This concept was supported by interpretations of USP Validation of Compendial Methods first published in the 1980s and ICH Q2(R1), Validation of Analytical Procedures: Text and Methodology, which was finalized in 2005. The pharmaceutical industry, as all industries, is now taking a more proactive view of all processes and has adopted a lifecycle approach to process understanding and validation. The FDA issued a guidance on process validation, Process Validation: General Principles and Practices, in 2011 which advocated a lifecycle approach to process validation. The lifecycle concept was applied to test methods in recent USP stimulus article and there is now a move to apply the lifecycle approach to test methods. The life-cycle approach will put more emphasis on a clear definition of the intended use of a test method and the uncertainties associated with a test method. 

In this webinar, we will discuss the lifecycle approach to test method validation and how it might impact the practice of method validation from the decision to develop a test method through to the discontinuation of the use of the method for the testing of a commercial product. 

This ninety-minute webinar will begin with a review of the USP Stimulus Article, Lifecycle Management of Analytical Procedures: Method Development, Procedure Performance Qualification, and Procedure Performance Verification along with the FDA 2011 Process Validation Guidance and a discussion of how these apply to and impact test method validation. Key elements of the discussion will be the three stages of test method validation, the importance of the Analytical Target Profile and an understanding of measurement uncertainty. The discussion will conclude with a review of the test method characteristics of accuracy, precision, linearity, range, specificity, limit of detection and limit of quantitation and the application of these characteristics through the test method lifecycle.
