On Dec 15th. 2016 the EMA published a draft set of Q&A on the setting and use of Health Based Exposure Levels (HBEL). However in this document they stated that “it is not intended to be used to set cleaning limits at the level of the calculated HBEL (using the guideline methodology). The cleaning limits should continue to be based via risk assessment and additional safety margins to help account for uncertainty in the cleaning processes and analytical variability. Traditional cleaning limits used by industry such as 1/1000th of minimum therapeutic dose or 10 ppm of one product in another product, may accomplish this for non-highly hazardous products”.
