What can Campden BRI do to review thermal processes?
Campden BRI will review process records, validation data and other relevant information to provide an independent
judgement of a scheduled process, whilst making recommendations for any improvements.
We can review and make assessments on the following:
- Robustness of validation methods, such as for temperature distribution or heat penetration work
- The use of any thermal process calculations
- Appropriateness of the thermal process target, e.g. pasteurisation value or F0 value. Does it provide enough margin of safety? Could it be optimised?
- Adherence to specific regulation, for example the FDA in the US.
We can present these findings in a process authority letter, useful in the context of FDA filing.
This can be a low cost, high value exercise which gives customers assurance that thermal processes are appropriately
scheduled based on robust validation testing.
