Abstract:  A system for fulfilling the objectives of cleaning/disinfecting and controlling the environment of a cleanroom must be established. Some of the organizations that have established standards in designing a system include the International Organization for Standardization, the United States Pharmacopeia, and the US Environmental Protection Agency. To design a system specifically for your pharmacy, you must conduct the initial assessment of your pharmacy’s specific environment, the categories of surface chemical treatments, steps on selecting the proper chemical treatments, cleaning/disinfecting and control techniques; and verification testing.
