To support customers in their aim to be compliant with applicable industry standards, METTLER TOLEDO has created the Initial Qualification Packages (IPacs) and the Equipment Qualification Pac (EQ Pac). These qualification services offer customers significant cost savings through quick installation, optimal equipment set-up and configuration resulting in longevity and safe operation by trained users, and ensuring compliance with quality management systems such as GLP/GMP or other quality management system assessments.
METTLER TOLEDO IPacs are the best choice to meet national and international Quality Management requirements such as the ISO 9000 series, USP, GxP and FDA standards. METTLER TOLEDO offers three installation packages to ensure equipment is properly configured and users can begin working immediately. The Starter Pac is a low-cost option that can be used in any non-regulated industry such as education, government or trade. This low-cost package provides a professional installation and initial calibration and includes a NIST traceable certificate.
To ensure equipment accuracy, the Quality Pac is the best choice to meet national and international Quality Management requirements such as the ISO 9000 series and food standards. This installation package applies to all industries. The Pharma Installation Package is specific to regulatory compliance. It easily integrates into existing QM systems and all IQ/OQ needs are covered. This installation package best applies to highly-regulated industries such as the Pharma, Biotech and Food industries.
METTLER TOLEDO EQ Pacs contain stand-alone equipment qualification documentation covering all qualification steps. All materials are filed in one convenient binder for quick-reference. EQ Pacs are mainly used in highly regulated environments such as Pharma, Biotech, and the food & beverage industries where an existing qualification is not already in place. All protocols and calibration certificates meet national and international requirements and must be performed by an authorized METTLER TOLEDO factory-trained technician. Using proven METTLER TOLEDO designed protocols specifically tailored to balances saves users the effort of learning and creating protocols on our equipment. The EQ Pac covers all Qualification steps: Maintenance, Installation, Operational, Performance and Design Qualification. Carefully planned Maintenance Qualification (MQ) reduces risks. Defined routine tests reduce your risk of incorrect results and planned maintenance qualification ensures equipment reliability. Users are given basic training on the balance allowing for quick deployment of the equipment and the ability to begin work immediately after installation.
Compliance is a key objective if your company is regulated, producing consumer products or being held to a high standard of excellence by your customers. Qualification provides documented evidence that equipment is properly installed, configured, calibrated and suitable for use in your application. Trained measurement specialists executing the right equipment qualification protocol is essential for instruments subject to FDA regulations and current GLP/GMP standards.
