Understanding Global Compendial Specifications: Elastomers
Compendial documents developed by both international and national organizations outline specifications for elastomeric components that are used in packaging of parenteral drug products. These specifications often are not harmonized; not all compendia specify the use of the same tests, and some tests that are used globally have varying specifications. Understanding these specifications and how they influence packaging/delivery of parenteral drug products in global markets is critical.
