Environmental surveillance is a tool utilized to evaluate the effect of controls on the manufacturing environment. A process to assess the cleanroom and other controlled environments of a pharmaceutical facility can serve as an adjunct to the sterility assurance program for the microbial quality of drugs. The items addressed in this online training course include definitions, standards, surveillance support systems, system surveillance, validation systems, definitions and typical frequencies and levels.
This online training course will review different types of environmental monitoring equipment and media. Participants will be able to determine appropriate sampling sites and methods based on area classification, activities performed and surface type. They will also be able to develop a surface and air environmental monitoring program for PDA's cleanroom.
