Description: Online training with immediate access upon enrollment. Biopharma Institute Reviews

This online program offers an introduction to the international principles and regulations behind equipment cleaning validation. Manufacturers of medicines and healthcare products must establish, validate and maintain an equipment cleaning program. This is a regulatory requirement because validated cleaning procedures contribute to the assurance of product purity and safety. This module provides a comprehensive account of equipment cleaning validation requirements and procedures. It follows the work of a pharmaceutical company's validation team as they establish and validate the cleaning program for a new production line.

Course training objectives include: To analyze cleaning validation results and the preparation of reports, to develop and execute cleaning validation protocol, to determine your criteria on cleanliness, to offer a definition of cleaning validation prerequisites, to explain the factors that determine your cleaning validation scope, and to explain regulatory requirements and a definition of cleaning validation terminology.

Certification Requirements: Students must view the entire program and successfully pass an online, multiple-choice final assessment within a 90-day/3-month period (180 day/6-month period for Professional Certification Programs). Certificate of completion is accessible in PDF format immediately after satisfying requirements.

Biopharma Institute's online training programs include immediate access after enrollment. Username, password, and instructions are emailed to the student following enrollment into the program. Course takers can attempt the final assessment any number of times, as needed, to achieve a passing score. Once all training requirements have been satisfied a certification of training has been achieved and can be verified immediately from our website using a unique certification ID code. The certificate of completion is also instantaneously launched and made available to the student in a PDF format upon completion. Professional certification programs additionally include a digital badge to verify training, and can be displayed on social networking sites, such as LinkedIn.


An introduction to the validation project that provides a case study on validation, plus definitions and a glossary.

Scope of cleaning validation
This session compares and contrasts different approaches to equipment cleaning validation: equipment-train vs individual item; common vs dedicated equipment; batch-to-batch vs product-to-product cleaning; automated vs manual. It identifies requirements that cleaning SOPs need to meet. It explains the bracketing of products for cleaning validation. It outlines the qualification of clean-in-place systems, and the use of previous cleaning validation data. Finally, it describes techniques for testing surface residues.

Validation of test methods
This session identifies analytical techniques that are appropriate for cleaning validation studies. It defines limit of detection (LOD) and limit of quantitation (LOQ). Finally, it explains how to carry out swab recovery studies.

Acceptance criteria
This session identifies factors to be considered when determining acceptance limits for product carryover. It explains how to use toxicity and solubility data in determining acceptance criteria. It describes the selection of worst-case, follow-on, and representative products for cleaning validation studies. It explains how to calculate Maximum Allowable Carryover (MAC), and Surface Area Limit (SAL) for swab testing.

Writing and executing protocols and writing reports
This session identifies essential elements of a cleaning validation protocol. It describes how to specify worst-case conditions for cleaning validation, and sampling at the most difficult-to-clean locations. It explains why a cleaning validation protocol is usually applied to actual batch manufacture. It provides checklists for preparedness to execute a cleaning validation protocol, and for the documentation of results. It summarizes the content of a cleaning validation report. Finally, it outlines ongoing cleaning requirements after validation.

The assessment tests the learner's assimilation of the module's content.
