Preventing cross contamination is an essential GMP-requirement and has already been mentioned in the EU GMP Guideline since its first publication in 1989. However, in the last years this requirement has become more and more relevant. There is a stronger focus on cross contamination since the EMA has published their „shared and dedicated facility guideline“ regarding the use of multi-purpose equipment. In this guideline, health-based exposure limits (HBEL) and permitted daily exposure-values (PDE) are implemented as state of the art values. Consequently, the chapter 5 of the EU GMP Guideline and the Annex 15 have been revised in the same direction. A Question and Answers (Q&A) draft document and now the final version should interpret EMA´s „shared and dedicated facility guideline“. De facto, these two Q&A´s have led to some confusion in the pharmaceutical industry.
We address staff from the pharmaceutical industry and API manufacturers who are interested in the topics cross contamination and cleaning validation, e.g. head of production, validation managers, QA-personnel etc.
