Cleaning Validation

Independent Solutions provide validation of cleaning processes, in accordance with site-specific requirements, FDA and EU standards, to ensure that equipment is in an acceptably clean condition prior to processing. We are able to perform a complete audit of cleaning processes and provide documented evidence asserting that these processes have been performed in line with relevant regulations and standards. Cleaning has a substantial impact on the efficiency and quality of plants and other pharmaceutical premises and for this reason it is vital that correct cleaning processes are implemented. 

This involves the development and execution (where applicable) of the following documentation:

  •  Cleaning Validation Policy
  • Cleaning Validation Procedures
  • Cleaning Validation Master Plans/Project Plans
  • Risk Assessments
  • Recovery Studies
  • Justification Documents for:
    • Equipment/Product/Process Grouping
    • Establishment of Cleaning Limits
    • & Acceptance Criteria
  • Residue Selection
  • Equipment Hold Times
  • Equipment Sample Locations
  • Sampling Procedures
  • Cleaning Validation Protocols and Reports
  • Cleaning Review/Verification/Revalidation
  • Training Plans

Examples of Cleaning Validation

  • Clean-In-Place (CIP)

  • Clean-Out Of-Place (COP)
