Temperature mapping, or thermal mapping as it is also known, provides food and pharmaceutical companies with the confidence that their storage conditions comply with regulatory requirements.  Even minor fluctuations in temperature could lead to product safety and compliance issues meaning that costly inventory is lost. Periodic temperature mapping of storage conditions is critical for compliance in MHRA or FDA regulated applications.  Compliance means there is increased emphasis on the need to perform GMP mapping on temperature controlled storage where drugs, vaccines and other pharmaceutical products are stored and it can be a requirement for licencing a product. When to Map The temperature mapping of storage areas should be carried out before the storage area is used.  In fact, GDP Guidelines Chapter 3.2.1 quote: “An initial temperature mapping exercise should be carried out on the storage area before use, … Read more
