Cleaning Validation for Cosmetics and Medical Device Manufacturers Training

Cleaning Validation

Training Overview

The national and international regulatory authorities (such as JFDA) expecting from manufacturers of pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and medical devices , that they have written procedures for equipment and facilities proper and effective cleaning. The companies shall demonstrate that all their equipment used for different product manufacturing is clean prior to starting any product manufacturing mission. The manufacturers must demonstrate that the cleaning procedure routinely employed for a piece of equipment limits potential carryover (from the previously manufactured product, or cleaning agents) to an acceptable level.
