New defect Evaluation List for Moulded Glass out now

Defect evaluation lists consist of comprehensive, detailed documents on pharmaceutical and cosmetics packaging testing and are obligatory for efficient and systematic quality assurance. The lists are based on GMP Rules, pharmacopoeias (Ph.Eur., USP, JP), and directives and technical standards (ISO, ANSI Z1.4). They include a classification of defects, sampling tables and detailed descriptions of testing procedures to facilitate practical work.  

The bilingual (German - English) checklists and instructions for use in the testing of containers made of glass have been completely revised and enlarged.

  • The brand-new 2018 edition of the Defect Evaluation List for Containers Made of Moulded Glass now includes an colored appendix on the determination of stress due to cooling in containers made of moulded glass and an illustrated four-colour appendix with photo examples for specific defect characteristics to illustrate the defect category.
  • The 2016 edition of the Defect Evaluation List for Containers made of Tubular Glass includes already defect characteristics for syringes and an illustrated four-colour appendix with example images of specific defect characteristics.
