Residual Solvents: Take Advantage of the New Flexibility in Revised USP - Webinar (Recorded)

  • Webinar

  • 90 Minutes
  • January 2018
  • Compliance Online
  • ID: 4899694
Why Should You Attend:

This course focuses on recent changes to USP < 467> which can increase flexibility and reduce workload for testing of residual solvents in raw materials and finished products. It addresses options such as whether to test raw materials or drug products, whether to use USP or alternate testing methods, when to screen for all solvents and when to test for specific solvents. Significant resources can be saved by reduced testing, and we discuss the steps necessary to do this successfully.

We’ll explain how new information on verification or validation of analytical procedures clarifies what must be done. We also talk about some of the unresolved challenges related to residual solvents compliance. There will be ample opportunity for questions and discussion.Areas Covered in the Webinar:

Regulatory Landscape for Residual Solvents: ICH, USP, EP and JP
Revision to USP < 467>: improved clarity and flexibility
Discussion on various approaches to compliance, and how to minimize resources
Unresolved issues: solvents with poor volatility or not yet addressed
