Webinar Wednesday 4th September 2pm – 3pm (BST)

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

This third webinar takes us further forward and considers the challenges associated with Qualification and validation of a water system. The traditional 3-batch approach to validation of a process is not appropriate for water systems. However, the generic phases of defining a user requirement specification, followed by the qualification stages of Design, Installation, Operation and Performance are relevant. These are therefore discussed in the context of microbial control of water systems.

The webinar covers:

  • Validation programmes
  • Validation overview
  • URS and determining demand levels
  • DQ: plant location, biofilm management, capacity etc
  • Factory acceptance testing
  • Installation and Operation Qualification
  • Performance qualification
  • Microbiological testing requirements at each stage
