Application

This unit of competency describes the skills and knowledge required to identify and implement contamination control measures in a pharmaceutical manufacturing facility.

The unit applies to individuals with specialised skills and knowledge of Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) requirements who are responsible for overseeing the implementation of contamination control programs within pharmaceutical manufacturing operations and have responsibility for the output of others. This includes applying and communicating non-routine technical solutions to predictable and unpredictable problems.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
