Cleaning Validation Training

Training Overview

The national and international regulatory authorities (such as JFDA) expect manufacturers of pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and medical devices they have written procedures for equipment and facilities for proper and effective cleaning. The companies shall show that all their equipment used for different product manufacturing is clean before starting any product manufacturing mission. The manufacturers must show that the cleaning procedure routinely used for equipment limits potential carryover (from the previously manufactured product or cleaning agents) to an acceptable level. We need to calculate the limits established based on sound scientific rationale.

This workshop helps  QA/QC officers, and technical managers at cosmetics and medical devices companies, to get a deep understanding of theoretical and practical aspects of cleaning validation objectives, regulatory requirements, acceptance criteria, and required documentation of cleaning validation.
