Overview

Controlling contamination in GMP classified areas requires much more than cleaning and disinfection. Operations need to assure that a complete system of control that starts with entry of components and personnel to the facility is established. This course will identify and describe systematic elements essential to assuring an appropriate and compliant contamination control program for aseptic manufacturing facilities, classified and non-classified environments. This course will also highlight the important aspects of PDA Technical Report No. 70 (TR 70), Fundamentals of Cleaning and Disinfection Programs for Aseptic Manufacturing Facilities.

The course covers the critical steps to developing and validating a complete contamination control program within controlled and non-controlled environments using chemical agents that reduce or destroy microorganisms. While sterile product manufacturing requires the most stringent application, the concepts introduced during the course can also be used to design a program for the manufacture of non-sterile products.

Topics to be addressed include:
  • Sanitizers, disinfectants, sporicides
  • Regulatory guidance
  • Qualification of new vendors and agents
  • Control of the environment
  • AOAC protocol testing for disinfectant registration
  • In-use expiration dating
  • In-situ field studies
  • Sterility of solutions and cleaning agents
  • Cleaning and disinfection
  • Frequency for cleaning and disinfection
  • Resistance and rotation
  • Return from a shutdown
  • Hold times for cleaning areas, non-product contact equipment and utensils
  • Training

Who Should Attend:

  • Quality Assurance: Managers, Supervisors, Technicians, Microbiologists
  • Quality Control: Managers, Supervisors, Technicians, Microbiologists
  • Validation: Managers, Supervisors, Engineers, Specialists
  • Manufacturing: Managers, Supervisors

    • Describe current contamination control principles as they relate to the cleanliness and sterility of product contact and non-product contact surfaces
    • Formulate in-house environmental control concepts to reduce bio-burden in operations
    • Analyze current regulations, guidance and industry standards as they relate to contamination control
    • Generate appropriate cleaning and disinfection procedures for controlled environments
    • Develop validation protocols for appropriate implementation of cleaning systems and chemical agents
    • Build risk assessment models
    • Conduct antimicrobial effectiveness testing and in-situ field studies at your facility
