Cleaning of equipment is an important factor to avoid and reduce the risk of contamination and cross contamination. The cleaning and its validation approach have evolve over time with the implementation of Quality Risk Management principles. Residues of products and excipients as well as of detergents are increasingly an issue in inspections and audits. The success of cleaning validation is based on cleaning principles knowledge, sound rationale, risk assessment and knowledge of the regulatory requirements.

  • Cleaning design and processes.
