ISPE releases water and steam guide


02/01/2007







The International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE) has released its latest technical publication, ISPE Good Practice Guide: Commissioning and Qualification of Pharmaceutical Water and Steam Systems.

The goal of the guide is to increase understanding of direct impact water and steam systems in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. According to Alex Konopka, chairperson of the guide’s Task Team, “We’ve tried to pull together information that will allow practitioners to logically understand important considerations for the commissioning and qualification of these systems.”

The guide also describes how the capital project management process, commission-ing and qualification activities, and on-going monitoring work together in the Validation Life Cycle for direct impact water and steam systems.

For information on obtaining the guide, contact ISPE at (813) 960-2105 or via e-mail at customerservice@ispe.org.
