Reaching Full Potential with a CM System - Implement SOPs
Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are a required part of any facility so that employees have clear direction on how documentation, processes, HR, and situations are to be handled.  In the Continuous Monitoring (CM) world the SOPs are the most important part of any validation process. They work in conjunction with Installation Qualification/Operational Qualification (IQ/OQ) that should be performed with any CM system as, together, they help to complete your validation process. For example, the following are typically part of an SOP for a CM system:
  1. Outlining and informing those involved on how alarm situations are to be handled, from turning them off and on to properly documenting the event.
  2. How often it is required to assess the system and verify that everything is operating properly.
  3. How often the sensors need to be calibrated – this may be yearly, twice yearly or quarterly.
  4. Outlining the steps that need to be taken in the case of product loss to ensure the product is handled and disposed of properly, and the event is documented appropriately.
  5. Outlining the steps involved if the product needs to be moved from one location to another. 
The staff should be fully trained on clearly outlined SOPs to ensure the proper procedures are consistently followed.
