Potential Cleanroom Sampling Points per Annex 1 Draft

Potential Cleanroom Sampling Points per Annex 1 Draft

Sample point location for cleanroom monitoring

EU GMP Annex 1 provides guidance on choosing effective cleanroom sampling points.


Cleanroom Sample points include particle counters and microbial monitors.

  • Identification of critical areas by HACCP analysis and process understanding
  • Choose points within the critical areas according to defined criteria
  • When performed this way, you can demonstrate a thorough evaluation based on scientific criteria that any sampling point was considered

Define final points based on available space, environmental design, evaluation of product and primary container closure exposure.
