Between audit findings, quality control issues, or hitting limitations due to cleaning downtime, your CIP systems, and how you clean them, are more important than ever.

That’s why it’s always a wise choice to review your current cleaning regime, risk assessments and validation processes to see where there’s an opportunity to improve.

While cleaning issues can have far reaching impacts to your bottom line and your brand, there are steps and controls you can take to help mitigate this from happening. One specific area is the cleaning process used for your critical processing equipment. Consider these key points:

  1. Audit findings related to cleaning and cleaning validation are growing
  2. Improving your cleaning process provides a key opportunity to expanding manufacturing capacity, while also helping prepare better for regulatory inspections.

Applying cleaning best practices from our GTC team can help pharmaceutical companies to improve their production goals, and reduce changeover times. Additionally, reviewing cleaning procedures periodically is key for cleaning efficiency. See an example of how this was achieved in our Granulator Application Optimization Case Study.
