Webinar Includes : All the training handouts , certificate ,Q/A and 90 mins Live Webinar

Webinar Overview

Knowledge of the microbiology of water in a GMP environment is critical to the health of any water system being used to produce a pharmaceutical or biotechnology product. Even companies manufacturing tablets need to be aware of the quality of the water that may be contacting their process or product. The well-being of a facility revolves around the health of each water system within that facility. How often have we learned of a facility being closed for weeks at a time because of a water system that has exceeded its microbiological specifications?

This live, interactive WCS training webinar presentation will also examine a variety of the issues surrounding water in a facility to include the testing of each water source and to what extent. It will cover testing requirements during commissioning and testing on an on-going basis. The webinar will examine Quality Risk Management (ICH Q9) and discuss how a properly developed Facility Water Validation Plan may lead to a logical, reduced requirement for testing vs. time.

The presentation will explore the time requirement for testing before reduced testing might occur and why some organizations refuse to accept this path.

The objective of this live and interactive WCS webinar is to assist those involved in the development of a process or the manufacturing of a product to explore water, as a raw material (component) in a GMP environment, the requirements for potable water, purified water, water for injection and steam to assure that they are meeting the current USP, EP, JP and FDA requirements. Please plan to have a Project team attend to gain the most from this webinar.

World Compliance Seminars (WCS) is one stop solution for all your pharmaceuticalbiotechnology and medical device certification program needs. The pharmaceutical and medical device training requirements are set forth by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and other major regulatory bodies like NIHEMA, as well as numerous European based national regulatory bodies.

These requirements are important to the training of pharmaceutical reps who are responsible for the education, professional development, and on-the-job training. The training is broken down into different sections to cover a wide variety of topics, including pharmaceutical formulation, pharmaceutical transfer processes , GLP, GMP, Clinical ComplianceProcess Validation, Global Regulatory Affairs, Document Management,GMP (Good manufacturing practice) QSR and CMC and many more.

The pharmaceutical and medical device requirements that the FDA has set forth are designed to protect the public's health and safety. Pharmaceutical reps must adhere to all of the regulations and education courses provided by the FDA in order to be considered one of the best in their field. They also must complete ongoing educational opportunities and maintenance programs in order to maintain relevance and career enhancement.
