Why Should You Attend:
Having a plan for gathering and compiling appropriate sterility assurance documentation to be included in a global marketing application is essential for injectable drug products. In this session we will provide an overview of current regulatory guidance and compendial requirements associated with sterilization validation and control of microbial quality.

While guidance on overall content is readily available, a lack of understanding of specifically what information is needed and how to present it could result in regulatory questions, delay of approval, and costly repeats. This webinar will review what information is needed, what level of detail is included, and how to present the documentation in CTD format.

There are fundamental differences in the content of sterility assurance documentation for terminally sterilized drug products and those utilizing aseptic processing. In this session you will learn what data and information need to be included in your submission for these different approaches to manufacturing a sterile drug product. We will review information needed in support of the sterilization and depyrogenation of container closure components, filter validation, heat penetration and distribution studies, and container closure integrity testing.

In addition, we will discuss the need for periodic requalification of sterile processes as part of the ongoing quality program, and we will review the requirements that need to be met to gain approval for use of parametric release in lieu of sterility testing for batch release, which substantially shortens the release timeline.

Microbial quality controls are also an important component of sterility assurance. In this session, we will review relevant in process controls, validation parameters for sterility and endotoxins test methods, and acceptance criteria for the drug product specifications. We will also discuss use of container closure integrity data in lieu of sterility testing for stability studies, providing savings to the stability program.
