The Importance of Manufacturing Support Programs for Ensuring Product Integrity
Recent shifts in local and international regulations governing biocides have impacted a diverse range of industries as they seek to meet regulatory and labelling compliance. Focus on biocide replacement strategies with potentially weaker options has placed greater emphasis on holistic approaches to ensuring product integrity.
This paper discusses a broad approach to achieving formulation and process control with consideration given to hurdle technology, good manufacturing practice principles and other key support programs including environmental monitoring as a predictive tool, and the use of endemic environmental and product isolates in the validation of new or modified biocide systems.
