This lecture will provide the attendees with a comprehensive understanding of clean room design as it applies to ongoing operation, as well as the knowledge to develop a contamination control strategy and implement an environmental monitoring program for controlled environments. Case studies and practice failure investigations will be used to demonstrate common errors to avoid as well as best practices to implement. The participants will gain an understanding of how design, control, and monitoring work together to provide the required manufacturing environment, which will allow the participants to identify opportunities for improvement within their companies. Participants will also learn how to investigate excursions when they occur.

Who Should Attend

Technicians, managers and directors in architecture, engineering, quality assurance, and environmental monitoring will benefit from this course.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Define the regulatory requirements for US and EU controlled environments
  • Identify elements of clean room design critical to successful operation
  • Explain how a contamination control program complements the environmental monitoring program
  • Determine the key elements in a contamination control program
  • Identify sampling locations for the environmental monitoring program
  • Investigate environmental monitoring excursions and identify potential root causes
