Kneat Gx | Paperless Process Validation

Process Validation

Process Validation is the collection and evaluation of data from the process design stage through commercial production, which establishes scientific evidence that a process is capable of consistently delivering a product.

Process Validation is regulated by FDA  21 CFR 820.75 and 21 CFR Part 211.100, 211.110 and EudraLex Annex 15, and occurs in three main stages, Process Design, Process Qualification and Continued Process Verification. 


Stage 1 | Process Design: The commercial manufacturing process is defined during this stage based on knowledge gained through development and scale-up activities.

Stage 2 | Process Qualification: During this stage, the process design is evaluated to determine if the process is capable of reproducible commercial manufacturing.

Stage 3 | Continued Process Verification: Ongoing assurance is gained during routine production that the process remains in a state of control.


There are four key types of process validation, Prospective Validation (before production), Concurrent Validation (during production), Retrospective Validation (after production) and Revalidation (validation following any process change) – all of which can be conducted in Kneat Gx.

Documenting the Process Validation process on paper, can result in significant inefficiencies including an inability to adequately enforce process requirements, non-value-added activities, lack of data visibility, physical record retrieval and storage challenges and lengthy cycle times.
