The checklist are GMP/GEP design criteria that needs to be considered during the development, design, construction, testing, qualification and maintenance of process, utilities & building in a facility. The list covers all engineering disciplines.


Purpose of the Checklist:

The checklist consists of design criteria for a facility component that needs to be considered during the life-cycle phases of development, design, construction, testing, qualification and maintenance. This is to ensure the components in the facility are:

  • “fit for intended purpose”,
  • compliant to regulatory/statutory requirements,
  • easy and safe to operate and maintain.

 The checklist:

  • consists of topics relevant to components in a facility eg process, utility, testing, security equipment; building components and fabrics; electrics and controls
  • covers all project disciplines – Architectural, Ventilation/HVAC, Process Equipment, Process/Utilities, Electrical, Process Control and Automation
  • includes design criteria which are typical industry standard
  • the checklist ensures that you have covered all expects in the design, construction, testing and maintenance of components in a facility
  • a missed item or design feature can lead to non-compliance; very expensive and cumbersome retrofit; plus project delays
  • some items are extracted from statutory and regulatory requirements eg FDA CFR 211.42 Building/Facility
