HVAC and GMP Environmental Control for Pharmaceutical Cleanrooms
Live Webinar | Roger Cowan | From: Sep 20, 2021 - To: Dec 31, 2021
Environmental control of pharmaceutical cleanrooms is essential to the manufacture of a quality product. The definition of Environmental Control vs. Environmental Monitoring is discussed. Control of such conditions as airborne particulate, microorganisms, temperature, humidity, differential pressure, airflow, air velocity, and personnel is crucial to protect the product from contamination.
Therefore, the design, validation, and ongoing monitoring of a cleanroom HVAC system are necessary to assure the quality and safety of the pharmaceutical product.
Also, a proper understanding and testing of the cleanroom environment according to international regulatory standards is important from a compliance perspective.
It is important that a clean room’s HVAC system is fully understood, properly designed, and properly validated. If this is accomplished, it will provide the environmental control necessary to meet the regulatory particulate and microorganism levels necessary to manufacture quality pharmaceutical products.
This webinar first details and explains the various US and international regulatory requirements for various cleanroom classifications.
Next, the webinar provides a comprehensive overview of the mechanics of cleanroom HVAC. This includes engineering diagrams and schematics. HVAC equipment components are detailed as well as the automated control systems that are available. Cleanroom design considerations are included. Proper building construction and layout are necessary to achieve both optimum efficiency of the system and optimum cleaning and sanitization of the cleanroom.
The principles of HEPA filtration are described along with desired cleanroom airflow patterns and how to achieve them. Proper procedures for HEPA filter leak testing are included.
The webinar then provides valuable information on differential pressure, air velocity, flow rates, and air pressure balancing. Temperature and relative humidity controls and specifications are also detailed. specifications are also detailed.
Comprehensive procedures for cleaning and sanitization of the cleanroom environment are presented along with a review of the best disinfectants currently available along with their respective advantages and disadvantages.
The subject of cleanroom contamination due to personnel is discussed. This includes both gowning techniques and aseptic practices.
Finally, a full set of requirements for HVAC system validation is detailed.
