Regulatory compliance and validation services

Throughout the world the production of pharmaceuticals, biotech and API is subject to strict governmental control. Manufacturers are required to provide documented evidence that their facilities, equipment and methods meet, and are capable of continuing to meet regulatory directives.

With our proven experience in the life sciences industry and our track record in managing validation projects we can help you to:

  • Achieve regulatory compliance and optimal production
  • Support new risk-based approaches as described in GAMP5
  • Extend the validation concepts to the next generation PAT-ready control systems
  • Implement a systematic approach to pharmaceutical development and manufacturing
  • Implement continuous manufacturing (CM) operations, as preferred by FDA and EMEA

Your validation partner

ABB helps you establish documented evidence that your facilities, procedures, control systems and other equipment function in a reliable and reproducible manner and meet the current good manufacturing practices (GMP) for all pharmaceutical production.

When validating your facilities, our priority lies with identifying and rectifying those non-compliant areas that most threaten your operations. Our risk-based approach addresses:

  • Laboratory systems and equipment
  • Toxicology software, LIMS systems, spectrophotometers, chromatographs and other equipment
  • Computer systems
  • Electronic records and signatures
  • Process equipment
  • Complete system audit
  • Quality management, work methodology and control mechanisms for product release
