« Go Back


I noticed a manufacturer code on the bottom of your Certificates of Analysis. What does this code mean? How can I access the manufacturer information?
As of April 24, 2006, the original Manufacturer Name and Address is referenced on the Certificate of Analysis as an alpha-numeric Manufacturer Code for the regulated products designated with Management of Change (MOC) codes RL- Regulated Limited, R - Regulated and HR - Highly Regulated.

This practice is compliant with ICH Q7 Good Manufacturing Guidance for Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs), the International Pharmaceutical Excipients Council (IPEC) guidelines and cGMP requirements.

Manufacturer Data, Name and Address Information is proprietary information and requires an active Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) for release to product end-users.
