Current Requirements for Cleaning Validation
: 22 Oct 2019 - 23 Oct 2019
: Barnard Castle, United Kingdom
Validation of cleaning procedures is critical for any cleaning programme as defined in the current GMP Guidelines (Annex 15, Section 10): "Cleaning Validation should be performed in order to confirm the effectiveness of a cleaning procedure for all product contact equipment"
Since the first statement regarding cleaning in the GMP Regulations, the number of guidelines has greatly increased, especially since 2000. This has coincided with the increased focus by regulators within this area.
This pharmaceutical validation course covers topics such as the development of regulatory expectations, effective cleaning procedures, process validation and control of these procedures. It will cover all areas from the inception of a cleaning strategy and policy through the development and performing of the exercise to the maintenance of the validated cleaning regimes.
