This interactive workshop provides up-to-date, relevant and detailed information on the impact of Quality by Design (QbD) on the Development and Validation of tablet manufacturing processes. It will also study the identification and evaluation of Critical Product Attributes and Critical Process Parameters for tablets, and their implications for process control. We develop new concepts including the use of risk and process matrices for risk management. The latest ICH and FDA guidance on Quality by Design and Process Development, published in 2009, will be comprehensively reviewed. The hands-on workshop day will enable you to experience at first hand the impact of processing parameters on product quality.

By the end of the course, you will

·         Understand the relationship between the principles of QbD and tablet development and process validation in generic and new product development

·         Understand the relationship between material properties, formulation development and process development

·         Understand the processes commonly used to manufacture tablets and the factors which affect them. Recognise how to identify critical processing parameters, and how to incorporate into a process validation program

·         Understand the principles of PAT, how and where it can be most effectively deployed

·         Know the latest FDA thinking on Process Development including the three key steps of validation

·         Gain practical hands on experience of the impact of processing parameters on product quality on the small scale.

       Who should attend?
The  course  is designed  for people new  to Process Development,  and  those  requiring  a
refresher in the area.  It will also benefit Process Development experts wishing to extend
their understanding of why products processes can go wrong, and regulatory and quality
personnel who need to understand the development process better.  The course will include the latest FDA guidance on the development of generic products under QbD.

       Course outline:

Day 2: 
Morning - EFPIA Case study. Wet granulation 
• The new regulatory landscape. Q8, Q9 and Q10 and their impact on product and
process development. 
• EFPIA case study  -  what would a QbD regulatory submission look like? 
• Use of Process Matrices in process development
