The various regulatory agencies have expectations that oral solid dosage pharmaceutical manufacturers will demonstrate control over the manufacturing environment; however, there are no clear guidelines on how to establish such a program. The FDA’s findings of deficiencies concerning cleaning validation and disinfectant efficacy in particular indicate the agencies expect definitive evidence that the cleaning and sanitation schedules of a facility will satisfactorily control the environment. Examples of FDA form 483 findings for disinfectant efficacy indicate deficiencies in many of these studies.
The cost of non-compliance is therefore more than that of compliance. Are you in compliance with the FDA regulations for cleaning validation in your non-sterile manufacturing facility?
This highly interactive two day seminar on regulations for cleaning validation will explain the different global agencies expectations of disinfectant efficacy and qualification along with the development of a sound environmental monitoring baseline program in order to develop and implement bulletproof solutions in microbial control that are accepted, effective, and efficient. Through case study analysis it will examine best practices to provide thoughts and ideas to develop or improve the performance of your current system. Additionally, case studies will explore how your management practices of your environmental monitoring program can help or hurt your legal liability and the legal issues that arise from nonconformance with regulators and auditors.
Upon completing this course on regulations for cleaning validations participants will:
- Understand what the global expectations are for non-sterile production environmental monitoring.
- Be able to utilize a risk based approach for developing an effective and scientifically justified monitoring system.
- Evaluate effectiveness, suitability and adaptability of cleaning, sanitation and disinfection.
- Understand the difference between the acceptable historical trends and significant deviations from those trends that constitute undesirable contamination.
- Be able to investigate true root causes of problems and to evaluate and prioritize solutions.
- Learn problem solving methods to help them assess which are best for their situation.
- Be able to develop successful implementation plans.
- Learn how to perform risk assessments effectively.
