Overview

A strong microbial monitoring plan and a leveraging/introduction of new technologies should be used for all sterile medicinal products and sterile active substances.

Specific topics include:

  • FDA and EU GMPs requirements for total particle and microbial environmental monitoring for aseptic processes
  • Design of an environmental monitoring plan based on risk assessment and process analysis
