In 2019, after many years of new guidance updates (which include ASTM E2500, ICH Q8, Q9, 10, as well as FDA Guidance for industry), ISPE updated its paramount baseline guide for Commissioning and Qualification.
The purpose of this updated guidance is to define the Baseline® approach for the Commissioning and Qualification of facilities, utilities, and equipment regulated by the FDA. This will assist in optimizing the commissioning and qualification processes at regulated facilities.
Despite this monumental effort, adoption in industry by end users is slow at best, and has not been widely accepted. These presentations, and breakout panel discussions by the speakers, will address challenges in adopting the updated methodology, and will also include how to manage change to encourage adoption. The discussion will also include testimonials directly from end users, and show how adoption can lead to more integrated qualification approach, allowing for faster project turnaround and cost savings.
