Specific Vs Non-Specific Validation

Recently I had a discussion with a Supplier Engineering Person from a well know MEDICAL DEVICE MFR on Validation. He explained SPECIFIC validation as one where testing (validation) results in destroying/damage to the product/sub-component and hence has to be done prior to the PRODUCT launch whereas NON-SPECIFIC validation is one where testing (verification) can be done prior, but is also possible after the fact (ex. variable inspection).


I am not Aggre with this,

Actually validation Categories in three category.

  1. Prospective Validation
  2. Concurrant validation
  3. Retrospective validation.

Thanks and Regards,
