Pharmaceutical Water, Steam and Compressed Gas Systems
This pharmaceutical training course covers current and best practice in the areas of design, construction and commissioning / qualification of critical utility systems. It includes generation and distribution systems for purified water, water for preparation of extracts and water for injection (WFI), clean steam, pure steam, compressed air and process gases. The course provides an insight into the underlying hygienic design principles/requirements/guidance involved in the specification, construction and completion of these systems. Testing requirements (qualification and routine) are also covered. It also provides information on suitable system design solutions and configuration, together with a detailed systematic approach to the key stages (including planning) involved in the project life-cycle. Typical examples of operational issues and recommended actions/precautions that can be taken, are also covered by this course. The course will be fully updated to reflect requirements from the latest pharmacopoeias and EMA regulatory guidelines, including Annex 1 and the Q & A's for the production of water for injection using non-distillation methods. Attendees will receive PDF file versions of all the presentations by email. Presentations for each day will be sent out the day before the start of the respective day of the course.
