    Is there an inspection report or other validation that the systems are hygienically designed with no dead areas, limited interruptions to flow streams and good system drain ability?
    Scavenge/return pumps are operated to ensure that there is no build-up of CIP solutions in the vessels.
    Spray balls and rotating spray devices effectively clean vessels by providing full surface coverage and are periodically inspected for blockages.
    CIP equipment has adequate separation from active product lines (e.g. through the use of double seat valves, manually controlled links, blanks in pipework or make-or-break connections with proxy switches as interlocks) to prevent or safeguard against cross-contamination.
    The system shall be revalidated following alterations or additions to the CIP equipment. A log of changes to the CIP system shall be maintained.
    The CIP equipment shall be operated to ensure effective cleaning is carried out :the process parameters, time, detergent concentrations, flow rate and temperatures shall be defined to ensure removal of the appropriate target hazard (e.g. soil, allergens, vegetative micro-organisms, spores). This shall be validated and records of the validation maintained.
    Detergent concentrations shall be checked routinely.
    CIP process verification shall be undertaken by analysis of rinse waters and/or first product through the line for the presence of cleaning fluids or by tests of ATP (bioluminescence techniques), allergens or micro-organisms as appropriate.
    Detergent tanks shall be kept stocked up and a log maintained of when these are drained, cleaned, filled and emptied. Recovered post-rinse solutions shall be monitored for a build-up of carry-over from the detergent tanks.
    Filters, where fitted, shall be cleaned and inspected at a defined frequency.
