GMP Sterile Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Facility Training Course

Sterile Product Manufacturing Facilities: Applying the ISPE Baseline® Guide and FDA Guidance Principles to Design and Operation (T12)

Level: Intermediate
ISPE CEUs: 1.3
Type: Classroom Training Course
 

This classroom 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.

Sterile Product Manufacturing Facilities cover

Immediately apply the course learning objectives using the electronic download of the ISPE Baseline® Guide: Sterile Product Manufacturing Facilities (Third Edition) you'll receive by attending this course.

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.
