Water and steam may be used in the manufacture of products, cleaning operations, and laboratory activities within pharmaceutical or biopharmaceutical operations. Systems that generate and distribute water and steam that may come into contact with product/or process contact surfaces, or that are used in the testing of product, are subject to commissioning and qualification (verification) practices.

The guide focuses on items which directly affect quality attributes of water or steam during production, storage, and distribution.
