Highly Potent Compounds – Safe & GMP-compliant Handling - Webinar Recording

Course No. 18158A

Exposure to active pharmaceutical ingredients must be kept within acceptable limits. The protection of employees must be achieved primarily by technical measures and not through personal protective equipment. Several containment solutions like glove boxes, islolators, special valves and transfer ports are available. This equipment has to fit to the surrounding, the product requirements and the organisational circumstances. Therefore detailed planning is necessary.
But GMP also has requirements for contamination or the avoidance of contamination / cross contamination as far as possible (see chapters 3 (Premises & Equipment) and 5 (Production) of the EU GMP Guidelines. By introducing the PDE concept (Permitted Daily Exposure) by the European Medicines Agency, occupational medicine and GMP requirements are now based on the same scientific basis, namely on the question: how much exposure is uncritical for a person (whether patient or employee)? This important question has to be answered for both, dedicated and multipurpose equipment.

Target Group

This Webinar aims at persons from production, engineering and quality, responsible for
  • Occupational safety
  • Cleaning concepts and contamination prevention
  • Design of new manufacturing areas
as well as engineering and plant-construction companies working in containment projects.
