As cleaning technology and detection methodology advance, so do the challenges associated with establishing, managing, and maintaining a scientifically sound cleaning validation program. With the FDA's risk-based regulatory initiatives focusing new attention on the risks of cross-contamination understanding lifecycle management techniques for an effective cleaning validation program is paramount. This course covers the risk-based approach to cleaning development and verification; risk analysis; procedures and evaluation tools including FMEA / FMECA, master planning, risk control, PAT, periodic assessment and monitoring, risk review and communication. Additional content includes elements of a cleaning validation program from start to finish, exploring such concepts as the determination of residues to be targeted, selection of analytical and sampling methods, determination of appropriate limits in various pharmaceutical and biotechnology processes and establishment of scientific rationales acceptable to regulatory inspectors. For mature cleaning validation programs, concepts such as understanding process control, capability, learning to effectively self-audit a cleaning validation program and documentation will be essential takeaways.
