The intent of this chapter is to provide general information on the verification of compendial procedures that are being performed for the first time to yield acceptable results utilizing the personnel, equipment, and reagents available. This chapter is not intended for retroactive application to already successfully established laboratory procedures. The chapter Validation of Compendial Procedures 1225
provides general information on characteristics that should be considered for various test categories and on the documentation that should accompany analytical procedures submitted for inclusion in USPNF.
Verification consists of assessing selected analytical performance characteristics, such as those that are described in chapter 1225
, to generate appropriate, relevant data rather than repeating the validation process.
