Cleaning Validation with Swabbing Workshop

: 30 Jun 2020

: Reading, United Kingdom

Sector: Pharmaceutical

Type: Training

This is a practical based course. We explore the issues and pitfalls you may experience when performing Cleaning Validation. Help, guidance, and training is given on techniques to overcome the issues in order to achieve a successful outcome.


After an introduction to the overall objectives, the course then covers process design, pitfalls and associated validation issues including sampling and testing. The course is designed so that the most important and fundamental issues associated with cleaning validation or verification are broken down and explained. Numerous practical exercises are run throughout, providing clear demonstrations of techniques to employ.


The course has been updated for 2020 to also include an overview of swabbing techniques, however, if you require a more extensive, practical swabbing course, we do offer an in-house advanced swabbing techniques course. See rssl.com for more details. 


This training is designed for those with responsibility for the design, execution, or validation of cleaning processes which may include operations managers and personnel, validation specialists, Quality Assurance and Quality Control managers, production engineers, microbiologists, quality systems auditors and supplier auditors.
