2.0   Scope :

The standard operating procedure applicable for the preparation of qualification and re-qualification documents for all equipment & system and execution of qualification activities performed.

3.0   Responsibility :

Officer and above of User, Engineering and QA Department shall be responsible for the preparation and execution of the equipment and system Qualification and Re-qualification activities

4.0   Accountability

Head- User, Engineering, and Quality Assurance shall be responsible for compliance.

5.0   Procedure – Equipment and System Qualification :

  • Qualification Approach – Equipment and System :
  • The universal “V model” approach shall be followed for all the Qualification and Validation activities.
  • The model is as follows:    


Equipment Qualification & System Validation                    

    • The left arm of the “V” deals with defining the requirement and design of the equipment.
    • The right arm of the “V” ensures that for each item in the left arm, there is a corresponding activity that verifies the same in the equipment.
    • These include:
      • The installation is as per the design specification in the URS (this activity is called IQ).
      • The Operation is as per the function and design specification in the URS (this activity is called OQ).
      • The performance is as per the overall performance requirements specified in the URS (this activity is called PQ).
    • FAT & / or SAT may be done based on the risk assessment or criticality of the equipment; it is not mandatory and hence, is shown with dotted lines.

    • Qualification activity shall consider stages from the initial development of the user requirement specification through to the end of the use of the equipment, facility, utility, or system.
    • The introduction of any new equipment or system shall follow the quality risk management approach for qualification activity.
    • The impact of equipment or system shall be assessed during risk assessment to determine that equipment or system that requires qualification and that equipment, which do not have this requirement.
    • Based on the impact assessment, the equipment or system shall be categorized as “Direct Impact”, “Indirect Impact” and “No Impact”.
    • Equipment or system shall be defined as Direct Impact on Qualification if it meets any of the following criteria.
      • It has direct contact with the product which is impacting product quality attributes. E.g. Air quality, MOC, etc.
      • To provide or produce an in-process material or an ingredient /excipient or solvent, which forms a part of final product formulation e.g. purified water
      • It is used in cleaning and sterilization of critical equipment. E.g. Vertical autoclave, CIP system
      • It preserves the product status of raw material / In-process material /Product/QC samples e. g Nitrogen
      • Produces data, which is used to accept/reject in-process material or product e.g. electronic batch recording system, critical process parameter chart recorder.
      • It is a process control system that may affect product quality and for which alternative independent verification is not available e.g. PLC, SCADA, or DCS.
  • Equipment or system shall be defined as “Indirect Impact” if it meets any of the following criteria:

    • Indirect impact equipment /systems will be those parts that are connected to direct impact or are playing role in “direct impact systems/equipment” e.g. Carton packing machine, Sticker labeling machine, etc.
    • Equipment or system shall be defined as “No impact” has no impact on product quality e.g. lifting and positioning device, Conveyor belt, Shipper coding machine, etc.
    • Appropriate qualification practices shall be applied to “Direct Impact” equipment or system, and “Indirect impact” equipment shall undergo enhanced commissioning.
    • While the “No Impact” equipment shall be installed and commissioned according to “Good Engineering Practices”.
