AFI representatives of the process validation working group explore and define key elements for an enhanced approach to process validation for solid oral dosage forms.

In Part 1 of this work, the AFI (Industrial Pharmacist Association, an Italian professional association) Working Group on Process Validation has illustrated the concepts, the approaches, and the tools available to implement current vision of process validation for sterile dosage forms. In Part 2, the same concepts can be applied to immediate-release solid oral dosage forms. These forms were chosen considering their worldwide availability and popularity. For the sake of simplicity, immediate-release plain tablets are considered in this work; however, the principles and tools described can be applied to coated tablets as well as to other types of tablets and also to other types of finished dosage forms.
