Zielsetzung

GMP for Beginnners in Sterile Manufacturing
 
The Online Training is designed for people working in sterile manufacturing to get basic knowledge of GMP.
  • You get to know the most important pharmaceutical regulations for sterile manufacturing and their importance,
  • You get a basic overview of general GMP requirements and specific requirements in sterile manufacturing and
  • You become familiar with the most important basic processes in sterile pharmaceutical production.
 
Process Simulation / Media Fills
 
During this course you will learn in lectures and workshops
  •  The new requirements of the revised EU Annex 1
  •  How to plan a media fill in compliance with European and US GMP requirements,
  •  How to interpret the results of a media fill,
  •  How to investigate deviations and define follow-up measures and
  •  How QA should be involved

Hintergrund

GMP for Beginnners in Sterile Manufacturing
 
Knowing and applying the GMP regulations is one of the key elements in the manufacture of medicinal products and medical devices. Particularly in the manufacture of sterile medicinal products, employees have to comply with extensive requirements. Against this background, employees have to know the GMP requirements and must know how to use them in practice.

The question is: how can employees implement in their daily work regulations which are usually formulated in a very general manner?
The aim of the Online Training is to help answer this question and enable the concrete transfer of regulatory requirements into practice. Where are the main difficulties and how can they be solved pragmatically? The Online Training will present elements and situations which employees are regularly confronted with, like for example:
  • Correct cleaning / disinfection
  • Behaviour in clean rooms
  • Correctly passing into the clean rooms
  • Environmental Monitoring 
  • Performance of Media Fills
 
Process Simulation / Media Fills
 
In the aseptic processing of medicinal products, the product quality usually cannot be ensured by means of lab controls of the final product. Process validation by means of media fills is the only way to furnish proof of product safety, which is why it justly is the focus of regulatory requirements and official inspections.

A number of revised and harmonised international regulations, especially the FDA Guidance for Industry „Sterile Drug Products Produced by Aseptic Processing“, the EU-GMP-Guide Annex 1, ISO 13408 and the PIC/S Guide „Recommendation on the Validation of Aseptic Processes“, define highly detailed requirements, the implementation of which is critically examined within the framework of official inspections.

In general, the required media fills should be able to simulate both routine operation and worst-case conditions.

In practice, the question of practicability often arises. How should the requirements be interpreted and how can they be implemented even for special production processes or dosage forms?

Zielgruppe

GMP for Beginnners in Sterile Manufacturing
 
The Online Training is directed to staff from the healthcare industry having no or little experience with the current GMP requirements for sterile manufacturing. This includes both employees who, after their vocational training, enter the pharmaceutical industry and experienced colleagues who work for the first time in sterile manufacturing areas. Suppliers who have to understand the quality requirements of their customers should also attend this Online Training.
 
Process Simulation / Media Fills
 
This Education course is directed at staff from
  •  Production
  •  Quality Assurance
  •  Microbiological Quality Control
who are responsible for the planning and evaluation of Process Simulation (Media fill) programmes.

It is also valuable for decision makers who have to deal with Process Simulation data within the framework of production release and Aseptic Process Validation.

Technical Requirements

For our Live Online Trainings and Webinars, we use Cisco WebEx, one of the leading suppliers of online meetings. At https://www.webex.com/test-meeting.html you can check if your system meets the necessary requirements for the participation at a WebEx meeting and at the same time install the necessary plugin. Please just enter your name and email address for the test. If the installation is not possible because of your rights for the computer system, please contact your IT department. WebEx is a standard nowadays and the necessary installation is fast and easy.
