ECA Certified Microbiological Laboratory Manager


Throughout the last years the role of pharmaceutical microbiology has been getting more and more important. This is also shown by the attention it receives from regulators during product submission and inspections.

With the harmonisation of the different pharmacopoeias the harmonised methods have to be imple-mented. The challenge is, though, to satisfy regulatory requirements and at the same time manage-ment's financial expectations.

Furthermore, the field of Rapid Microbiological Methods developed very fast. Caused by the new European regulation for chemical products, like the EU Guideline 98/8 EG for Biocides or REACH, the new European Community regulation on chemicals and their safe use promises both new possibilities as well as classic topics - like cleaning and disinfection - to regain importance.

ECA stays abreast of these changes. The new Certification Programme "Certified Microbiology Manager" provides the opportunity to get the necessary knowledge and qualification to fulfil the current requirements in microbiology.
