Contamination Control Strategies Sterile and Non-Sterile Manufacturers

Robert L. Iser
Quality Manufacturing

As part of the planning committee, I’m very pleased to share this year’s theme for the 2018 ISPE Quality Manufacturing Conference, June 4-6 in Arlington, VA: Manufacturing and Quality: Present and Future Opportunities to Ensure Continuous Improvement; and we have put together three very interesting and timely tracks on Regulatory, Quality and Manufacturing, and Facilities and Equipment topics.

One session that I am very excited about is the one centered on Contamination Control Strategies. The session will include perspectives from experts in the pharma industry and the U.S. FDA; and will delve into Contamination Control Strategies for sterile and non-sterile manufacturers as an essential consideration for preventing product contamination. Pharma industry experts will share successful ways to communicate and manage contamination controls, with real-life examples.

Attendees will also have a chance to participate in a Q&A session that poses questions such as:

  • Do you have a dedicated Contamination Control lead or department?
  • What is the leading root cause for final product contamination at your company?
  • Do you have process risk assessments that include microbial ingress and contamination risks?

I am really looking forward to attending this session as part of the 2018 ISPE Quality Manufacturing Conference and hope that you will join me in June.

Best Regards
