Normaly you would do a risk analysis on the impact of the transfer on the validated state. This will determine the requalification need.
- An IQ is minimum to verify the instalation at the new location is appropiate
- The equipment must be calibrated prior and after the move, to assess the impact of the transport
However, in this case, there is no validated state. In that case you need to conduct the full required qualification program. For the qualification you may use available quality data (retrospective validation) as long as you can justify that these data are still applicable to the new location.
I would not bother too much with the URS, as you do not select new equipment. The suppliers manual and specifications may suit for that. Except for complex systems, where the URS is benificial in formulating the qualification tests.
