Course description

View Course Outline

Cleaning validation is one of the many GMP requirements critical to the production of a drug product or medical device. Unfortunately, product recalls due to inadequate cleaning still occur, indicating that implementation of an effective and compliant program is lacking in some companies. Because costly regulatory actions can have a significant negative impact on a company, a better understanding is needed.

This training course provides practical guidance on cleaning validation regulatory compliance in conjunction with risk-based, reasonable, and informed decision-making and activity planning. The course will describe the requirements for establishing an effective cleaning validation program, including the development of a general policy, cleaning SOPs, and other appropriate documentation. In addition, participants will understand the requirements for maintaining a validated cleaning process.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Outline the importance and underlying principles of cleaning validation and the requirements to have adequate cleaning procedures for manufacturing equipment in contact with the product
  • Explain the FDA perspectives on cleaning validation and areas of concern during regulatory inspections and become prepared to defend your own cleaning validation approach/program and avoid costly delays and/or rejections by regulatory agencies
  • Write cleaning validation procedures, protocols, and final reports that meet FDA, WHO, PIC, and EU regulations
