About This Course

Compliance with current regulatory expectations with respect to cleaning is in flux. Regulation changes in the past few years have resulted in companies being cited for poor compliance of their cleaning approach. Our cleaning validation course summarizes current cleaning verification expectations and how they can be met in a pragmatic and practical manner.

This course provides a concise, sensible approach to cleaning. It provides an overview on how you can apply this to your own activities and assess your own process vulnerabilities.

Using examples and applications from across the industry, you learn the correct approach while also formulating your own compliance plans to take forward.
