How to Transition to an FDA Compliant Facility

Many general manufacturing facilities in the future will need to transition to a cleanroom manufacturing plant due to the fact that the goods they manufacture like electronic cigarette liquids and certain food goods may come under FDA regulations soon. This course will explore how to turn your current manufacturing facility into a cleanroom regulated by the FDA. Information on building requirements that you will need to update; protocol for workflow changes; and monitoring equipment and protocol upgrades will be discussed.
