Colin Booth, director of regulatory affairs for Thermo Fisher microbiology products, will be one of the key speakers at the European Compliance Academy (ECA) Environmental Monitoring Conference to be held in Copenhagen, Denmark, from May 31-June 1, 2011. The conference will provide valuable information and insight for personnel in the pharmaceutical industry responsible for planning and implementing environmental monitoring programmes.
Environmental monitoring is extremely important for the assurance of product quality in the manufacture of sterile medicinal products. The ECA Environmental Conference provides participants with pragmatic recommendations for the creation and implementation of environmental monitoring programmes and equips them to develop solutions for their own companies. The programme will provide an overview of current regulations and guidelines and discuss hot topics such as alert/action levels, relationship to batch release, locations and frequency, identification of isolates and sampling procedures.
The programme also includes two valuable and practical ‘hands-on workshops entitled “How to Establish an Environmental Monitoring Programme” and “Interpretation of Out of Specification (OOS) Results.”
The Environmental Monitoring Conference is recognized for the ECA GMP Certification Programme for “Sterile Production Managers.” For further details about the event, speakers and registration, visit http://www.gmp-compliance.org/eca_seminar_6779.html.
