Critical Process Cleaning and Cleaning Validation

  November 01, 2011  
CfPA - The Center for Professional Advancement, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
27-29 February 2012

Who Should Attend
This course is intended for professionals in:

  • Process Engineering 
  • Production
  • Quality Assurance 
  • Validation
  • Technical and Management positions

You should have some familiarity and experience with the basic subject as it applies to research and manufacturing of pharmaceuticals, personal care products, biologics, medical devices,nutritional materials or fine chemicals.

This course will provide a solid overview of the principles and practices of residue removal and residue measurement on product contact surfaces. It will address the latest issues, industry practices and risk-based compliance strategies regarding choice of cleaning techniques, cleaning agents, analytical methods, residue challenges, grouping strategies, and validation protocols. Examples and case histories will be presented. Recent regulatory expectations and guidance from US and Europe will be discussed in depth.

For participants experienced on this subject, this practical course will help to better audit, evaluate and develop their own or third party cleaning programs to balance production objectives against QA/validation objectives. The idea is to first achieve an effective, reliable cleaning process defined parametrically, then generate sufficient data without going overboard on the number of samples, the number of analytical tests and the number of qualification studies that have become an excessive burden to many firms.

Participants are encouraged to bring a cleaning problem to the course for evaluation by participant teams or for inclusion in “Participant Problem Clinic” on the second day.
