Batch Release

Postby Cheston » Fri Nov 27, 2015 11:01 am

The answer is "it depends".

If you are the API maker selling the API to a separate company, then for GMP and legal reasons the answer is "NO".

If you are a single company making both the API and the finished dosage form, the answer is "YES, BUT". The BUT is that:

a. the finished dosage is not released until the API is fully tested and released(and of course if the API fails testing, then the finished product cannot be released), and,

b. that this way of working is a very occasional practice(say no more than once a year)

I hope this helps.
