Water is a critical consumable used in the manufacture of pharmaceutical and other healthcare products. Water can be a major component of a formulation, it can be a process aid, it’s use may be restricted to cleaning and disinfection, including being the source of steam for sterilizers.

In a series of 4 webinars, we will explore the importance of controlling water systems, hygienic design considerations, qualification and validation of water systems and finally sampling, testing and trending of water generated by water systems.

All webinars will be led by: Andy Martin – Director, ABM Consulting Ltd & Pharmig Committee Member
