Verification recently ranked in the top 5 reasons for Warning Letters from the FDA!

Verification and Validation appear frequently in ISO 13485, MDSAP, 21 CFR 820, 21 CFR 211, ISO 14971, US Pharmocopeia, and many such documents. Many people use the confuse between the two terms, and use them interchangeably. These terms are applied for myriad settings and purposes; to a process step / activity, a process, design, a test method, tool, production equipment, product, AND to changes in any of these. Thus, it is easy to see why the citations are high.
