Kneat Gx | Paperless Utility and Facility Validation

Facility and Utility Validation, Facility and Utility Commissioning and Qualification

Traditional paper-based utilities commissioning and qualification processes are inefficient and susceptible to data integrity and compliance risks.

Documented impact assessments should be performed on all utility systems (waters, steam, air, process gases, HVAC and others).  Those that may have an impact on product quality should be appropriately qualified in accordance with Good Manufacturing Practice.

Qualification requirements may include both equipment and process perspectives and supporting documentation may include both qualification and/or commissioning activities. Qualification should be supported by a Design Review (DR) along with reference to engineering standards and design drawings. A risk-based approach that utilizes test leveraging such as ASTM E2500 may also be used, as long as all testing is suitably documented and is still relevant at go-live.

Qualification data and deliverables may be provided by vendors of the utility system in support of the overall qualification. Post start-up, a robust change control process is essential to maintain the validated state of all utilities.
