SMi proudly presents the 2nd Annual Next Generation Pharmaceutical Cleanroom Conference being held in London on 6 - 7 October 2021.

It is a critical time for cleanrooms as new regulations in GMP enter their final drafts after several months in review. This conference will explore the forecasted impacts of the new regulations across the pharmaceutical cleanroom industry, from designer to operator.

These significant updates will be influential in the regulatory procedure across the cleanroom industry and come at a time when the global cleanroom technologies market is set to surpass GBP 3 billion in value.


This rapidly growing industry sustains an identical rate of evolution; technological leaps in airflow visualisation and environmental monitoring provide deeper insight into cleanroom management and contribute to the increasing standards in sterility. Additionally, the development of entirely new medicines is forcing new regulatory measures into play.


The agenda will look deeply into the influence of the developments in Annex 1, ISO 14644 and GMP compliance, as well as insights into the novel technologies surfacing in this industry, from robotics and automation to isolator technology implementation.


We look forward to welcoming you to the conference in October.

 

The workshop will focus on important aspects of cleanroom garments today as well as in the future. The present Annex 1 (2008), the draft Annex 1 (2020) an the IEST-RP-CC 003.4 (2017) are discussed. Practical aspects on gowning together with testing after gowning are presented.

Cleanroom garments are of enormous importance – today and in the future. Cleanroom garments are traditionally not looked upon as one of the most critical tools in pharmaceutical manufacturing. The future will be totally different – Much more focus will be put on cleanroom garments. The pharmaceutical manufacturer must have a good knowledge and understanding – theoretical and practical - on future demands on cleanroom garments.

    WHAT IS CPD?

    CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

    ‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

    CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

    Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

    CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.

    CPD AND PROFESSIONAL INSTITUTES

    There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

    For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

    CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.

    TYPICAL CPD SCHEMES AND RECORDING OF CPD (CPD points and hours)

    Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

    ‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

    ‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

    The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

    As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SMI Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.

    GLOBAL CPD

    Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.

    CPD Certificates

    We can provide a certificate for all our accredited events. To request a CPD certificate for a conference , workshop, master classes you have attended please email events@smi-online.co.uk
