Benchmark for Cleaning Validation and Control



Cleaning validation is increasingly important in preventing cross contamination and interactions between active ingredients in subsequent batches run in the same equipment. This webinar will review principles of sterilization validation and using them as a benchmark for more robust cleaning validation. Emphasis will also be placed on interrelationships with other processes and using the information gained during validation to monitor and control the cleaning process to prevent failure.

Areas to be Covered:

Sterilization process description and validation options including the kinetics of lethality (bioindicator vs bioburdens) and test methods
Pre-validation activities including defining worst case challenge to the process and selecting cleaning agents
Aspects to consider when writing the validation protocol
Sources of process variation and basics of process control
Data collection and troubleshooting
Post-validation (re-validation) and change control
Reporting and documentation requirements

Who will Benefit:

This webinar will benefit any organization that wants to validate and improve the effectiveness of their cleaning processes. Those who will benefit include:
QA Managers and Engineers
Manufacturing Managers and Engineers
Quality System Auditors
Executives and Managers responsible for validating cleaning or sterilization processes
