RISK MANAGEMENT AND ASSESSMENT

Quality risk management (QRM) involves elements of risk assessment, risk control, and periodic review to ensure continuous and effective control (6). It is important to achieve a shared understanding of the application of risk management among diverse stakeholders. Successful implementation of QRM requires support of the whole team, including operations, technical services, engineering, quality control, quality assurance, and regulatory personnel. This support is essential to identifying and addressing conditions that affect CPPs and CQAs for the cleaning or manufacturing process.

CONCLUSION

This article has reviewed the key issues in biotech cleaning validation. The authors encourage all biotech manufacturers to consult PDA Technical Report No. 49 for a detailed perspective on current practices and issues in biotech cleaning validation.
