About this course

Control of cross-contamination is a major compliance issue in our industry today. Central to any effective strategy for control is the demonstration that our cleaning procedures are robust and capable of consistently removing residual products down to levels which do not pose a risk to patient safety.

Validation of cleaning procedures is thus critical to any Quality Assurance programme and is currently a topic of great concern to regulators worldwide.

This course has been designed to provide practical advice on how to design and execute cleaning validation studies to meet current regulatory expectations in a cost-effective way.

General principles of cleaning validation will be supplemented by specific case studies from industry specialists from…

  • Dosage form manufacture and packing
  • Active pharmaceutical ingredient manufacture
  • Biopharmaceuticals manufacture

The special challenges of clinical trials manufacture and packing will also be covered in detail.

What You Will Learn

  • Current international regulatory expectations for cleaning validation studies
  • How to use risk assessment to…
    • set validation priorities
    • devise a scientifically sound cleaning matrix
  • How to devise cleaning validation protocols which meet regulatory expectations and help you to gain the maximum amount of information from the minimum amount of work
