Regardless of the type of regulated product produced, it is good science, good business, and a worldwide regulatory and quality system requirement to validate that the packaging will protect the product’s integrity from the manufacturer’s shipping dock to the customer’s receiving dock. Failure to do so will prove costly to a company’s reputation and bottom line.

Regardless of the type of regulated product produced, it is good science, good business, and a worldwide regulatory and quality system requirement to validate that the packaging will protect the product’s integrity from the manufacturer’s shipping dock to the customer’s receiving dock. Failure to do so will prove costly to a company’s reputation and bottom line.

This is why it is vital to create a simulated distribution test to ensure that product gets to where it needs to be in the condition it needs to be in.

Consider these two scenarios:

A drug product and its packaging were validated during the spring and summer prior to the product’s commercial debut; the launch of the product was scheduled for November. The first delivered batches of product arrived at the hospital after freezing during winter transport. The product had defrosted prior to use, but was inherently different, and in this case, ineffective for its intended use, having reached its freezing point.

A hospital regularly received a medical device that was sent overseas by cargo ship, and then delivered by truck or rail. An emergency caused the need for an urgent shipment of additional devices by airfreight. The product reached its destination in 48 hours, but the packaging had not been validated for air shipment. Upon its arrival, the customer found that the sterile barrier was breached, probably because of pressure changes with altitude, and the product was rendered unusable.

Both of these scenarios could have been made worse if the shipping damage had not been visually obvious; however damage to product and packaging are not always detectable with the naked eye. There are a number of non-obvious conditions and parameters to consider in the inclusion of package validation.

Join industry expert Rebecca Goode on Jan. 26 as she lays out all the conditions manufacturers need to be aware of while also providing a detailed breakdown of the steps take in creating a successful simulated distribution test. One that ensures that products don’t become damaged or a hazard en route to consumers.

In 90 minutes attendees will learn:

  • The 11 steps to successful simulated distribution testing
  • The three assurance levels for test intensity
  • How to use CAPA and risk analysis to address failures during testing
  • The 22 sets of regulations that may apply to a product
