  • Examples

Materials and Surfaces

  • Which materials can be used and for what purpose?
  • Stainless steel, plastics, polymers,…
  • How smooth have surfaces to be? Roughness and structures of cleanable surfaces

  • Examples of GMP-compliant equipment

GMP Zone Concepts (sterile/non-sterile/highlypotent)

  • Basic GMP requirements for materials & pharmaceuticals handling
  • Physical requirements (areas) vs Dynamic requirements (HVAC)
  • Finding the correct requirements depending on the manufacturing operation
  • Defining an appropriate layout and air lock concept
  • Defining personal & material flows
  • Product vs Personal Protection

  • Requirements on construction of floors, ceilings and walls
  • Classification, Qualification, Requalification of Cleanrooms

Upgrading, Re-construction and Renovation of Facilities

  • Required as built documentation to start
  • What to consider in re-construction projects?
  • How to protect the ongoing manufacturing operations: Protection of products, Protection of equipment, rooms and HVAC, Flow concepts and control of external personal, Access control, pest control, cleaning, Documentation of protective measures, Examples from recent projects

Qualification and Management of Technical Suppliers

  • Contract management: Commercial- vs. Engineering- vs. GMP-issues
  • Selection and auditing of suppliers with a risk based approach
  • How much GMP must a supplier have?
  • Review of suppliers and their performance
  • How to audit a technical supplier?
  • Examples of managing suppliers for equipment, technical services, ..
