Contamination Control Strategy - A Guide for Pharmaceutical Water Systems
Learn how to implement a contamination control strategy for your water purification system, compliant with EU GMP Annex 1.
Water is an essential ingredient for the pharmaceutical industry, but it also poses a significant risk of microbial contamination. To ensure the quality and safety, a contamination control strategy (CCS) for the water purification system should be implemented, as stated in the EU GMP Annex I. A CCS is a holistic approach that covers the design, operation, maintenance, monitoring and documentation of your water system. It is based on a contamination risk management (CRM) that identifies and mitigates all potential sources of contamination.
