All experts have practical experience working at leading domestic and foreign pharmaceutical enterprises at positions of higher engineering or managing staff, thus possessing practical skills in solving the daily problems faced by the manufacturer of medicinal products.

The Center for Good Engineering Practices includes the Clean Room Qualification Laboratory.

Availability of all necessary equipment in the laboratory and the experience of the employees of the center allow to conduct qualification of:

  • clean room grade;
  • integrity of the installed filters;
  • capacity reserves of the air handling system;
  • tightness of the enclosing structures;
  • compliance of the share of recirculation and outdoor air with the project;
  • modes for separating clean zones;
  • recovery time by pollution level;
  • stability of maintaining temperature and relative humidity;
  • illumination and noise levels;
  • speed of the air flows and the frequency of the air exchange;
  • completeness of the executive documentation.

According to GOST R ISO 14644-4-2002, the certification of clean rooms is carried out:

  • at the stage of a draft and working project,
  • at the stage of the constructed building,
  • at the stage of the equipment delivery,
  • at the stage of equipped premises and in the process of operation.

Based on the results of the tests, the specialists of FBI SID and GP prepare and pass to the customer a qualifying package of documents (plans, protocols, reports, conclusions, recommendations and terms of the next qualification) in accordance with the requirements of Russian legislation that can be used to develop corrective and preventive measures.

The Center for Good Engineering Practice invites industry experts from different functional areas of pharmaceutical activity (production, engineering services, quality control and quality assurance services, metrologists, etc.) to cooperate with the aim of:

  • Building a mechanism for qualitative interaction between the regulatory agency and the representatives of the industry;
  • formation of a common understanding of the philosophy of GEP;
  • joint development of guidelines and recommendations in the field of GEP, GMP and GDP.
