Cross contamination is a major problem in a multi product manufacturing facility. This problem can multiply into major problem in a bulk drug manufacturing facility as cross contamination in one batch may end up in several batches. Hence cleaning validation is of utmost importance in these facilities. The present study was under taken to assess the effectiveness of cleaning procedure being used in one of the WHO approved Pharmaceutical plant in Gujarat having common facilities for manufacture of dosage forms of Beta Lactam group of antibiotics where there is a risk of potential hazards of cross contamination. Cleaning validation studies were carried according to the cleaning validation protocol. The study showed good swabs recovery (91.84 %). The actives residue values on different sampling point were found within acceptance limit of 10mcg/sqcm recommended by USFDA guidelines and Lilly criteria. It may be concluded that the cleaning procedure being used in Beta Lactam manufacturing plant was found satisfactory.
