Although one of the most basic and long standing areas of pharmaceutical and FDA regulated manufacturing, “cleaning,” “sanitation,” or “environmental control” programs remain an essential part of cGMP compliance with numerous issues and potential problems such as effectiveness and safety of chemical agents, sterility or cleanliness requirements for supplies and cleaning tools, and methods selection and proper techniques for sampling and measuring viables and nonviables.

It is an ironic but accepted problem in this field that one of the major sources of contamination is the frequent sampling and measurement of contamination required by cGMPs. It is felt that, because the cleaning methods are predominantly manual, they can not be fully “validated.” In addition to a rigorous environmental monitoring program, worker technique and training are critical factors in process reliability.

This course will shed light on these important issues and offer pragmatic help to overcome obstacles that often stand in the way of consistent, cost effective, biodecontamination programs. Just as important, the course will provide valuable guidance on conforming to qualification and validation requirements including disinfectants, facility conformance, gowning and pass-through, environmental sampling plans, data collection and reporting and response/action plans.
