Many regulatory inspections fail because of inadequate behavior in the manufacturing environment, with the reason being often too little knowledge of cleaning and disinfection practices. The PDA Designing a Risk-Based Cleaning and Disinfection Program for Pharmaceutical, Biotech, and Medical Device Facilities Training Course will teach what the regulations ask for, how cleaning and disinfections must be performed. The Course gives the theoretical background with practical examples (with equipment) in group exercises. In a step-by step approach, participants learn how to plan, execute cleaning and disinfection, removal of residues, and how to control results. Participants learn from real case studies what needs to be done to have the cleanrooms under control. Questions can be sent in advance to [email protected].

Who Should Attend

Engineers, scientists, supervisors, managers, and people working in cleanrooms and on the shop floor, individuals dealing with environmental controls, and those responsible for validation activities.
