This course uses the second edition of the ISPE Baseline® Guide: Sterile Product Manufacturing Facilities and the FDA's Guidance for Industry: Sterile Drug Products Produced by Aseptic Processing - Current Good Manufacturing Practice to provide an understanding of the key requirements and GMPs for sterile manufacturing facilities. The Guide provides valuable information on design, while the USFDA's Guidance helps professionals understand the regulatory context and expectations for sterile drug manufacturing.
Using the referenced documents, this course will cover regulatory philosophy, aseptic process and equipment considerations, aseptic clean room design and operation, differential pressure requirements, airlocks, air filtration, HVAC design considerations, and a brief introduction to barrier isolation technology. (Note: parts of Guidance for Industry: Sterile Drug Products Produced by Aseptic Processing - Current Good Manufacturing Practice that do not focus on facilities and equipment will not be discussed in detail.)
In addition, the course will include an exercise in the layout of an aseptic filling facility. In many cases, when a new facility is required within an existing or new building, the designer will begin by sketching a floor plan. This exercise will demonstrate how to use process flow diagrams and an accommodation schedule to thoroughly define facility requirements before advancing to the floor plan layout stage.
This training course is of particular interest to existing and future members of the ISPE Sterile Products Processing (COP).
Pierre played a leading role in the Design and Qualification of several process equipment in GSK Bio (2001-2011). Since starting his consultancy company in 2007, he has supported several Commissioning and Qualification projects in Singapore and China focussing on a risk based approach and ASTM2500E guidance.
Pierre possesses a scientific mindset which is complemented by the practical approach acquired during his years as an engineer. This combination makes him a perfect fit for Design and Commissioning activities in a field that requires science and productivity.
Actively involved in ISPE since 2012, he helps the association to share knowledges and best practices. Pierre holds a Bachelors degree in Chemistry from the University of Liege and a Masters in Chemical Engineering from the Universite libre de bruxelles (Belgium).
