Learn how to perform QC analytical test method validations and transfers with our comprehensive course. The validity of data generated through analytical methods is crucial in pharmaceutical drug development and marketing. Regulatory authorities such as the FDA, ICH, and USP have recognized this importance and expanded method validation requirements. However, the lack of clear guidance has left the industry struggling to comply with regulations. Our course offers a comprehensive overview of international regulatory requirements and expectations for test method validation, ensuring that you can meet compliance standards and make informed business decisions based on reliable data.
