The Master Validation Plan (MVP) is a critical document that outlines the overall approach and strategies for validating a medical device product or process. The Global Harmonization Task Force (GHTF) published guidance in 2004 to help medical device manufacturers develop a comprehensive MVP that meets international regulatory requirements.

The MVP is a comprehensive and dynamic document that provides an overview of the validation activities required throughout the entire product lifecycle. It covers the product design, development, manufacturing, and post-market surveillance phases. The MVP outlines the validation approach, the roles and responsibilities of the team members involved in the validation process, and the specific validation activities required.

Given the never-ending volume of information, the lean documents and lean configuration approach provides a single source of truth and streamlined data set to help create and manage an MVP.
