This article describes how to select CSV testing and priority level based on the risk analysis results considering the potential failure severity, occurrence, and detectability.
A risk-based validation approach for each functional category can be established once the risk assessments for individual functional items from the URS have been determined.
The following best practice approach outlines three types of validations that can be utilized with a risk-based process.
High: Complete/comprehensive testing required. All systems and sub-systems must be thoroughly tested according to a scientific, data-driven rationale. This is similar to the ‘classic’ approach to validation. Furthermore, enhancement may be needed to improve the detectability of failure via in-process production controls.
Medium: testing of the functional requirements per the URS/FRS required with sufficient assurance that the item has been properly characterized.
Low: No formal testing needed, but the presence (detectability) of the functional item may be required.
