FDA expects pharmaceutical manufacturers to be in control of the environmental conditions within the manufacturing facility. Controlling the environmental condition is not only a regulatory requirement but also part of protecting and producing a quality product. This presentation will define what is meant by environment, what conditions are required and how such conditions may be dictated by the type of product being processed.
We will discuss how to obtain the desired environmental conditions, manage the conditions within the space, and what is required to ensure that the environmental conditions remain in a state of control. We will define standard environmental conditions to be maintained in manufacturing space based on published standards and compendial documents. A hypothetical biotech manufacturing facility will be used as an example to show the use of various conditions as they apply to various activities with the processing of a Biotech product.
We will describe various methods to monitor such conditions and where to monitor within the space. The frequency of the monitoring will be reviewed based on the criticality of the activity being performed in the space. We will emphasize how to collect the data and what to do with the data once collected. Trending, identifying alert and action levels will be defined and possible preventive and corrective actions will be reviewed.
Throughout the presentation we will review actual FDA 483 observation as they relate to environmental monitoring to emphasize the issues of most concern to the regulators. We will allow some time for Q&A at the conclusion of the seminar.
