What does USP Say about Cleanroom Shelves?

Table [3] on page 15 of the USP chapter requires that Walls, Ceilings, and Storage Shelving be cleaned monthly. The text on page 16 of the chapter states, “In the buffer or clean area, ante-area, and segregated compounding area, walls, ceilings, and shelving shall be cleaned and disinfected monthly.”

Contec Healthcare Recommendations for Cleaning Cleanroom Storage:

Start with the top shelf. Remove all objects. Start at the back of the shelf, and wipe from left to right using single-use wipes and a suitable disinfectant. Use slightly overlapping, unidirectional strokes rather than circular motions. Presaturated wipes offer convenience while advanced microfiber wipes offer superior particle capture and removal. After cleaning cleanroom shelves, restock the shelves if needed, then proceed with cleaning the floors.  Always follow site protocols and SOPs
