Continuous viable air monitoring is now a consideration, or even a recommendation o the new sections of Annex 1 draft, rev 12. Here I discuss this as well as the overall environmental monitoring requirements as part of Particle Measuring System’s series on the newest Annex 1 draft. Learn what Annex 1 is saying it will […]
Sampling standards keep managers of environmental monitoring (EM) on their toes. Read this blog to learn more about how to use high flowrate monitoring to make the most out of your EM practices in less time.
Covid-19 has brought the need for tomorrow’s way of working crashing down on us today. This “new normal” means that many people will be working remote as frequently as possible. This presents challenges, including how to conduct an audit. Fortunately, there is one solution available today to solve this “new normal” problem when it comes […]
Particle Counter Data Remote Access, 21CFR11 Electronic Signatures…. The new normal is here. Companies want to protect their employees, keep pharmaceutical manufacturing running, while working efficiently and effectively and getting product to market safely and quickly. This presents a wide range of challenges that we did not face at the beginning of 2020. Fortunately, Particle […]
The new EU GMP Annex 1 draft, Rev 12 specifies the requirements of a pharmaceutical risk assessment to set appropriate microbiological plate conditions. This blog discusses this requirements to use a risk assessment, and then provides an interpretation on how to apply it and use it in different stages of the manufacturing process. There are […]
Part 3 of 3 part blog on : Cleanroom Classification – Qualification – Monitoring Per EU GMP Annex 1, rev 12 draft There is little overlap with cleanroom monitoring and qualification and classification as seen in the image here: The goal of cleanroom monitoring is to assess the potential contamination risk of the product. […]
Part 1 of 3 part blog on : Cleanroom Classification – Qualification – Monitoring Per EU GMP Annex 1, rev 12 draft The latest Annex 1 draft has some new definitions and guidance regarding Cleanroom Classification, Qualification, and Monitoring. Cleanroom Classification Annex 1 provides essentially the same cleanroom classification definition as ISO 14644-1: 2015 which […]
In the final part of our five part series of Quality Risk Management per Annex 1, we explore the benefits of a Cleanroom Process Risk Assessment and how our Contamination Control Advisers can provide you with one. Process Risk Assessment: Why it’s important A process risk assessment helps you to to ensure risks are properly […]
In this blog series we will examine what a new fill line looks like with and without QbD implemented at the design phase. We will study each critical area of the fill line and the activities necessary to effectively bring the control features into effect. These examples come from real-world applications experienced by the Particle Measuring Systems’ Advisory Services Team. Our team has over 70 years of collective experience working in and advising cleanroom users around the world.
Science vs standardization: justification vs blindly following rules. The new auditors’ expectations Annex 1 requires designing an effective contamination control strategy (CCS) based on a scientific assessment to understand the process and to apply risk management principles. The latest Annex 1 draft frequently uses the terms “risk” “justify” and “strategy”, underlying the importance of these […]
