This Validation Master Plan serves as a summary of the overall strategy for the validation of a facility. This Validation Master Plan provides an overview of the each process and describes the validation approach along with supporting validation rationale.

This VMP addresses the all activities related to equipment, utilities, processes, systems, and procedures that may impact the product quality.  Specific systems, equipment, utilities, and procedures to be qualified and processes to be validated shall be determined based on documented risk assessment.
