Personnel are required to go through a change room before entering grey area from black area and various materials are allowed only through airlock. The manufacturing procedures are carried out in grey area while raw materials, finished goods and storage are kept in black area. Appropriate conditions are maintained inside manufacturing facility like pressure difference between corridors and production rooms, temperature and humidity maintenance as per product requirement.
