The draft revision to EudraLex Annex 1 emphasizes the importance of a well-defined contamination control strategy. Environmental monitoring (EM) is an essential component of a site’s contamination control toolkit. In this webinar, we will discuss what EM does (and doesn’t do), and how to develop or refine an EM program to achieve a well-rounded contamination control strategy. This webinar is ideal for quality assurance, quality control, and manufacturing personnel seeking to understand how EM fits into a contamination control strategy, to learn how to data-mine from an EM program, and to identify improvement opportunities.
