Procedure for line clearances. Quality assurance.

  • OBJECTIVE
  • To ensure that the area, equipment and activities required for the manufacturing and packing of pharmaceutical products are free from any potential sources of cross contamination / mix-ups (Line clearance).
  • SCOPE
  • The line clearance procedure is applicable to all the activities including dispensing, manufacturing, packaging and related activities.
  • Responsibility
  • In – process quality Assurance Executive/Officer.
  • ACCOUNTABILITY
  • Quality Assurance Manager.
  • PROCEDURE
  • Verify the following points before giving clearance for activity which has to be started after it has been checked by Production Executive / Officer in dispensing and manufacturing area.
  • Machine status for cleanliness and cleaned label is affixed.
  • Area status for cleanliness including dust bins, walls, return raisers.
  • Status labels of Bins, IPCs, Sieves, equipments, RLAF etc. to be used during manufacturing.
  • Release status of the product till the previous stage if applicable.
  • Calibration status of weighing balances.
  • Batch details of the product to be started should be displayed on the display board.
  • Rh, temperature and pressure differential of that particular room in which activity has to start along with the pressure differential of RLAF (If applicable).
  • Clearance by swab analysis in case of product changes over.
  • For Activities in Dispensing Area
  • After verification of Point Nos. 5.1.1 to 5.1.8, check the materials to be dispensed.
  • The raw materials should be approved by QC.
  • Verify the calculations for dispensing in the BMR.
  • The ‘Cleaned’ tags shall be signed by IPQA Officer / Executive at the start of the activity as a verification. This shall mean that line clearance has been given for dispensing.
  • Line clearance in BMR can either be given by Production or IPQA officer / Executive.
  • For Activities in Manufacturing Area
  • After verification of Point Nos. 5.1.1 to 5.1.8, check the batch record completion till previous stage.
  • The ‘Cleaned’ tags shall be signed by IPQA Officer / Executive at the start of the activity as a verification. This shall mean that line clearance has been given to a particular process.
  • Line clearance in BMR can be given either by Production or IPQA officer / Executive.
  • For Filling and Compression
  • After verification of Point Nos. 5.1.1 to 5.1.8, the initial checks for capsules filling or tablets compression shall be carried out.
  • If these checks are found satisfactory, the line clearance shall be given.
  • ‘Recoverable’ tags shall be signed by Production as well as IPQA Officer / Executive for that particular batch.
  • ‘Non – recoverable’ tags shall be signed by Production Officer / Executive at the time of start and IPQA Officer/Executive shall sign it after completion of the batch.
  • For Primary Packing
  • Check the Rh, temperature and pressure differential of that particular room in which activity has to start.
  • Machine status for cleanliness for each machine like Blister packing machine, Strip packing machine etc.
  • In case a different product is to be started, make sure that the machine change over is completed and the machine is clean and no previous product leftover.
  • Check the area cleanliness, belt and conveyor cleanliness.
  • Ensure that no trace of any material of the previous product is present in the area and machine parts.
  • Ensure the following details of the batch to be packed:
  • Batch Number
  • Manufacturing Date
  • Expiry Date
  • CST recoverable (If applicable)
  • Registration Number (If applicable) and
  • Retail Price (If applicable)
  • The product to be started is mentioned on the display board along with the batch size, Pkg. Qty., and other details as per Point No. 5.5.6
  • Approved primary packaging components are present.
  • Specimen of label / Foil / Carton are available and they are duly signed by Production Officer / Executive with details as per point No. 5.5.6.
  • The specimen shall be verified with BPR for details as mentioned in 5.5.6.
  • ‘Recoverable’ tags shall be signed by Production as well as IPQA Officer / Executive for that particular batch.
  • For Secondary Packing
  • After verification from Point Nos. 5.5.4 to 5.5.10, counter sign the ‘Line Clearance’ at the start of the activity as  verification. This shall mean that line clearance has been given to the particular process.
  • Sign the ‘Line Clearance’ tags and in BPR at appropriate places.
  • In case if manual coding is to be carried out, for labels and / or cartons, the line clearance shall be given according to Point No. 5.1.4 and Point Nos. 5.5.4 to 5.5.10.
  • Ensure balances are in calibration state and leveling done.
