Controlling contamination in GMP classified areas requires much more than cleaning and disinfection. Operations need to ensure that a complete system of control that starts with entry of components and personnel to the facility is established. This training 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 training course will also highlight the important aspects of PDA Technical Report No. 70 (TR70): Fundamentals of Cleaning and Disinfection Programs for Aseptic Manufacturing Facilities.

The training course will cover 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 training course can also be used to design a program for the manufacture of non-sterile products.

Upon completion of this training course, the attendee will be able to:

  1. Describe current contamination control principles as they relate to the cleanliness and sterility of product contact and non-product contact surfaces
  2. Analyze current regulations, guidance and industry standards as they relate to contamination control
  3. Generate appropriate cleaning and disinfection procedures for controlled environments
  4. Develop validation protocols for appropriate implementation of cleaning systems and chemical agents
  5. Design antimicrobial effectiveness testing and in-situ field studies for your facility
