This is the first of an Annex 1 Roadshow, coming to up to 7 industry locations around the country, continuing our ‘back to basics’ theme, target sight set on the new Annex 1 guidance (a EMA & PIC/s joint effort), QRM and a formal CCS (Contamination Control Strategy), setting requirements for cleanroom design and classification, and Viable & Non-Viable EM.



Morning: Annex 1 Introduction & Panel Discussion

A series of short bullet point presentations will target key elements and clauses of the new Annex 1 including QRM and CCS, relationship to Pharma 4.0, links to ISO 14644 standards, context with other Annexes (Annex 11 - Data Integrity & Annex 15 - Q&V), as well as other GMP guidance (ATMPs & short shelf-life products).

Afternoon: Workshops on Key Clauses

This will be a series of round table sessions where attendees can discuss and debate specific issues and challenges around key clauses in the new Annex 1 (now 59 pages vs 16), before sharing outcomes and conclusions with everyone. Clauses to be covered include how to deal with the 5 Micron particle size at Cleanroom Classification, and link to Environmental Monitoring, Qualification during Simulated Operations, Air velocity at Working Position, Airflow Viz, role of PALs, MALs & PTHs for segregation, Isolator applications and challenges in continuous EM, including adoption of ARMM.
