Course description

View Course Outline

For products that claim a desired Sterility Assurance Level (SAL), proof of a defined SAL (specification) is achieved through the product’s sterilization and sterility assurance controls. Compliance Observations cited each year by the FDA on Form 483’s that relates to Sterilization and Sterility Assurance processes shows that there are deficiencies associated with these key processes that are critical to a product’s sterility including inappropriately qualified and trained personnel required as key staff to implement a fully compliant sterilization process. This can potentially lead to Product Failures (Sterility Failures), product Non-conformances, Product Recalls, FDA’s Warning Letters, Consent Decrees and discontinuance of commercial operations which may negatively impacts a company’s profitability. FDA regulated industries that produce products with a defined SAL are obligated to have adequately trained and knowledgeable staff or Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) within sterilization and sterility assurance to provide applicable regulatory guidance with the impacted systems.

This accredited training introduces both new and existing employees to the basic requirements and steps of proper aseptic practices and sources of contamination within cleanrooms and Quality Control testing environments.
