Glass Packaging Defect Evaluation List: New Edition 2018

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 2016 edition of the Defect Evaluation List for Containers made of Tubular Glass includes defect characteristics for syringes and an illustrated four-colour appendix with example images of specific defect characteristics.
  • The brand-new 2018 edition of the Defect Evaluation List for Containers Made of Molded Glass has been fundamentally revised. Now it will also include an appendix with example pictures of specific defect characteristics.

As a participant of the USP - Ph. Eur. - ECA Joint Conference "GLASS meets PHARMA", from 6-7 June 2018 in Berlin, you will receive the defect evaluation lists for containers made of tubular glass (2016 edition) and, immediately after its publication, for containers made of molded glass (2018 edition) as a free PDF download.
