Pharmaceutical Technology
The manufacture of highly active or highly hazardous pharmaceutical substances involves a complex interplay between the required threshold values, such as the permitted daily exposure (PDE), which is used to calculate the occupational exposure limit (OEL) and the maximum carry-over from one product to the next. In addition to these threshold values, a risk assessment of the overall process and the associated containment transfer systems, cleaning, and staff training are also important. An account of this complex interplay and how it can be successfully implemented has now been published in the first edition of the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE) Germany/Austria/Switzerland (D/A/CH) Affiliate's Containment Manual. This article discusses principles of containment, risk assessment, process requirements, technical systems, and other aspects of containment discussed in the manual.
