The handling of deviations, i.e. Out of Specification (OOS), Out of Limit (OOL), Out of Trend or typical test results is unfortunately insufficiently described from a regulatory point of view. The only existing guideline of the FDA unfortunately does not refer to microbiological issues.

For this reason, the Pharmaceutical Microbiology Working Group of the ECA decided two years ago to prepare a supporting document that provides guidance on how to deal with such microbiological deviations based on the experience of its members and regulatory expectations. After the first chapter “Guidance for deviation handling of microbiological environmental monitoring excursions in non-sterile pharmaceutical manufacturing”, which has already been published, the second section, Endotoxin Testing Lab Investigations - OUT OF SPECIFICATION (OOS)/OUT OF TREND (OOT)/ATYPICAL RESULTS INVESTIGATIONS is finalized now and will be published shortly.


This webinar is aimed at employees from the following areas
  • Quality Assurance
  • Quality Control
  • Microbiology
  • Contract Labs
  • R&D
  • Authorities
who are involved in the control  of Endotoxins, administration of deviations/root cause analysis, batch release and audits and inspections.
