The contamination control plan is central to good manufacturing practice (GMP) because it describes the procedures and policies designed to create products under controlled conditions. The contamination control plan covers all phases of a facility's status and, therefore, plays a major part in the master validation plan. The author provides an overview of the contamination control plan as it applies to facility validation.
