Zielsetzung

During this Live Online Training all relevant aspects regarding the control of particles in APIs and excipients will be discussed.

You will learn
  • How potential sources of insoluble matter can be identified
  • Which acceptance criteria for particles can be applied
  • How good practices to minimise the presence of particles in APIs can look like
  • What has to be considered regarding control of particles during plant and equipment maintenance and cleaning
  • How a particulate contamination profile can be established.
 

Hintergrund

Visible particles, insoluble particles or matter or foreign particles in Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) and pharmaceutical excipients are  topics of great interest and of importance to the pharmaceutical industry.

A number of inspectional observations from various Regulatory Authorities related to visible particles in Drug Products and APIs has risen considerable concern. Moreover inappropriate methods of investigation, controls and preventive and corrective actions were all subjects of citations by authorities and observations by API and excipient customers.

Particles have always been present in APIs and excipients but guidance from health authorities (EMA, FDA, others) or Pharmacopoeias (e.g. EP, USP) about particles is very limited. The APIC Guidance on Insoluble Matter and Foreign Particles in APIs and the IPEC Guide on “Technically Unavoidable Particle Profile (TUPP)" are the only best practice documents so far providing guidance for a standard approach towards an appropriate control of foreign particles in APIs and pharmaceutical excipients.

Zielgruppe

This Live Online Training is addressed to employees and senior staff of pharmaceutical companies and manufacturers of APIs and excipients. The course is of particular interest to all those working in quality assurance, quality control, production and purchasing departments.

All participants get free access to the current version of the APIC’s „Guidance on Handling of Insoluble Matter and Foreign Particles in APIs “.

Technical Requirements

We use WebEx for our live online training courses and webinars. At https://www.gmp-compliance.org/training/online-training-technical-information you will find all the information you need to participate in our trainings and you can check if your system meets the necessary requirements to participate. If the installation of browser extensions is not possible due to your rights in the IT system, please contact your IT department. WebEx is a standard nowadays and the necessary installation is fast and easy.
