This Technical Report was prepared by members
of the PDA Sterilizing Filtration of Liquids Task Force.
PDA’s original Technical Report No. 26, published in 1998
described the use and validation of sterilizing filtration to a
generation of pharmaceutical scientists and engineers. This
revision was developed in response to enhancements in
filtration technologies and recent additional regulatory
requirements within the pharmaceutical industry. References
to scientific publications and international regulatory
documents are provided where more detail and supportive
data may be found. This report underwent an eleven-week
global technical peer review that included feedback from the
Americas, Asia-Pacific and Europe.
