Validation Services

FREUND provides validation services for the support of processing equipment and control systems.

Validation services for FREUND equipment lines include comprehensive testing protocol for Installation Qualification (IQ) and Operational Qualification (OQ). FREUND can also provide Process Qualification (PQ) assistance when situations dictate the need for additional validation services.

FREUND maintains complete confidentiality of any proprietary processes involved in the production of pharmaceutical goods. We believe that to have a “validated” process, one must start out with software and hardware that is under design scrutiny and control prior to validating the system. Validated systems are not tested, they are designed and built from the very beginning under controlled conditions.
