Non-sterile Beyond-use Dates – Preparing for What’s Ahead


BUD – Three letters that come with a whole lot of questions and ambiguity. View the on-demand webinar with MEDISCA Network’s Advanced Clinical & Formulation Pharmacist, Dr. Mindy Cormier, and MEDISCA’s R&D Manager, Raman Sidhu.

MEDISCA, MEDISCA Network and LP3 Network have been closely monitoring the dynamic regulatory landscape and have attended USP’s appeal hearings on General Chapters <795> and <797>, as well as the beyond-use date (BUD) open forum. To help you out, we have consolidated all our insights on non-sterile BUDs, with interpretations you can easily understand and apply. In 90 minutes, attain all the answers you have been looking and waiting for.

  • What’s the discussion surrounding the non-sterile BUD appeals been like – what can you expect?
  • The new maximum “default” BUDs – we’ve packaged it in an easy-to-follow flow chart for you
  • Extending a BUD is not what it used to be – strength is officially out and stability-indicating is in
  • Know what to look out for in a stability-indicating study – verification, quality, independence, and much more
  • Applying professional judgement in extrapolating stability data for extending BUDs is always a challenge – and we make it a point to walk you through the different scenarios of do’s and don’ts
  • MEDISCA has new stability-indicating studies to extend your common HRT, Pain, and Derm topical preparations
    • All of which have been conducted on their reformulated bases to comply with new regulatory and industry requirements
    • Have the bases you purchase been reformulated and new stability-indicating studies performed? It’s a big question that you’ll want an answer on
