In addition to the many presentations, plenary Q&As and workshops, the conference will also provide many opportunities for networking.

Conference objectives:

The objective of this conference is to provide participants with practical knowledge and understanding of regulatory requirements and techniques that can be put to use in their own cleaning validation strategy. The presenters will focus on the newest information available and will cover a wide range of subjects relevant to cleaning validation.

The conference is primarily relevant for R&D staff, Leaders, Supporters, Validation teams in production and Quality Assurance seeking the latest knowledge about risk- and statistics-based cleaning validation, as well as for engineering companies wanting to learn more about the viewpoint of the pharmaceutical industry and exchanging experiences.
