Container Closure Integrity in pharmaceutical sterile production is a requirement to maintain sterility of the drug product. After the USP chapter <1207> had a major update in 2017 with regard to testing methods and testing recommendations the new Draft of Annex 1 “Manufacture of sterile medicinal products” of the EU GMP Guide also implemented a more detailed discussion about Container Closure integrity testing. The first revised version published in 2017 resulted in discussions about testing strategies which leaded to a new revised version published in February 2020.
