Cleaning-in-Place Validation Issues

Cleaning-in-place (CiP) technology has been employed in the food, pharmaceutical and medical, process and allied industries for many years. Systems have become increasingly automated, giving CiP systems a level of repeatability which guarantees that a CiP clean is being carried out correctly. After proving and commissioning that CiP cycles are operating effectively, the level of repeatability in some cases is relied upon to give implied 'proof' of the quality of the CiP cleans.

To enable this repeatability to be relied upon, the control system of the CiP technology should be validated. A validated system is basically a certified system which ensures that all aspects of the system have been subjected to full successful testing, with each separate test certified once it has been completed. Once validation is concluded it provides the assurance that the CiP will operate as expected, at all times, or in the case of equipment failure will inhibit cleans being completed when they are out of specification.
