Design verification and validation. 

Verification and validation are 2 essential steps in the development process of a medical device.  On behalf of the inspection of the CE of your medical device, you have to be able to apply verification and validation. By means of verification and validation you show that your product and production process meet the requirements and are suitable for the intended use.


During this workshop you will learn more about the background, but also about practical issues. Your own cases will be used for hands-on practice during the workshop.

Main points discussed are:

  • Which steps should be taken during design verification and design validation?
  • When to apply process verification and when to apply process validation
  • What is meant by the terms Installation qualification”, “Operation Qualification” and “Performance Qualification”. Also known as IQ, OQ and PQ
