COURSE DESCRIPTION: For many years, measurement uncertainty calculations have been a requirement in ISO 17025 accredited laboratories. The USP has introduced these ISO concepts into USP General Chapter <1010>; Analytical Data—Interpretation And Treatment. The new USP General Chapter <1220>on Analytical Procedure Lifecycle includes the need to consider measurement uncertainty as part of ‘fitness for purpose’. There is a new USP initiative to extend the application of measurement uncertainty as part of ‘fitness for use’ to USP General Chapter <1058>; Analytical Instrument Qualification.

TARGET AUDIENCE: This course is designed for analytical chemists, senior technicians and analytical laboratory managers involved in evaluation of laboratory data primarily in a regulated environment. In addition, QA and regulatory affairs professionals will benefit from participation by gaining a clear understanding of the latest ISO, FDA & USP requirements.

• Describe the basic principles of measurement uncertainty and error budgets
• Apply basic principles to the calibration and qualification of analytical instruments and to analytical procedure validation.
