GMP Compliant and Temperature Mapping Workshop

January 11, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Temperature Mapping in a GMP Facility: How to Determine Sensor Location

Live interactive and instructor led


All pharmaceutical products are temperature sensitive. Health Canada Guide 0069, Temperature Control of Drug Products during Storage and Transportation requires drug products to be transported, handled, and stored in a manner that mitigates the risk of exposure to temperatures outside labeled storage conditions. Whether they are ambient, refrigerated, frozen, on dry ice, or liquid nitrogen, it is crucial to take action to avoid cold chain failure that could impact the integrity of your products. Inside a tank, a freezer, a fridge, an incubator, a room, a warehouse, a trailer, or a shipping box, there are some best practices you have to follow to meet regulatory requirements.

GMP Temperature Mapping should be completed on a periodic basis, in order to demonstrate continuing compliance. Temperature Mapping should also be completed when significant changes have been made to the equipment and storage areas which could impact air circulation or loading or unexplainable variability in temperature occurs outside of the specifications.

Temperature mapping is not only a regulatory requirement for your rooms or equipment. It is also a source of data you could rely on when it will be time to install your real time monitoring system. And help you to better understand how your products could be impacted by temperature deviations and take then appropriate decisions.
