Frequently Asked Facilities & Utilities CQV Questions (FAQs)

What kinds of facilities and utilities can you qualify?
Kymanox has the expertise and experience to qualify a wide range of facilities and utilities, including: cleanrooms, clean utilities, Aseptic manufacturing equipment, custom manufacturing equipment and control systems, drug product packaging equipment, controlled storage equipment and facilities, computerized software systems, building management systems (BMS), and environmental monitoring systems (EMS).
What is the purpose of CQV?
Commissioning, Qualification, and Validation (CQV) is an essential area for the life science industry. Commissioning and qualification of systems that support the drug production process (facilities, utilities, and equipment) is critical to ensure patient safety, product quality, regulatory compliance, and business needs. Our SMEs will work together with you to ensure an efficient and successful CQV process from the early stages of user requirements to operations handover. Throughout the process, Kymanox will continuously educate your team to enable knowledge transfer and ensure sustainability.  Whether you are a small start-up or commercial manufacturing company, Kymanox is ready to assist you with any of facility, utility, and equipment needs. 
What is commissioning and how can I be successful?
The first part of CQV is commissioning. Commissioning is defined as a documented and managed engineering approach to the start-up and turnover of facilities, systems, and equipment to end user, that results in a safe and functional environment and that meets established design requirements and stakeholder expectations. The keys to a successful commission and turnover of facilities/utilities are planning and an integrated team approach! At Kymanox, we work together with key stakeholders (system owner, quality assurance, project engineers, etc) to develop a commissioning plan, identify and execute key deliverables to ensure a seamless transition from commissioning/qualification to production. 
How can I maintain the validated state of my facility/utilities?
After qualification, it is important to maintain the validated state throughout the life cycle of your equipment. There are many reasons why equipment/systems can no longer maintain a validated state (breakdowns, modifications, aging, regulatory updates, introduction of new product, etc). Therefore, the best place to start is with a strategic and comprehensive gap assessment prioritizing upgrades and replacements as needed. At Kymanox, we can assist you with a variety of solutions (performing periodic reviews, revalidation, establishing a robust change management system, etc) to ensure your facility maintains its validated state and meets regulatory compliance.
