It is our policy to always use and maintain the following procedure for production, Packaging, handling, storage, and delivery of product.
In order to prevent mix-ups or cross contamination, it is our policy to always provide raw materials testing, in-process control, clean production and prefer to use dedicated equipment for special reactions.
1.1 Raw material testing
- Testing of each batch of a raw material against specified characteristics (e.g. appearance, identity, content)
- alternative: check of the certificate of the manufacturer or supplier
- usage of the material only after the release of the batch
- labeling of the drums or containers (label "released" or "rejected")
1.2 In-process control
- Sampling at critical process steps
- check of the completeness of the reaction
- usage of validated analytical methods and qualified equipment
- documentation of the results and comparison with the quality of the finished product.
- line clearance procedures, cleaning procedures, dedicated equipment
1.3 Clean production
- Clean production is a way of designing products and manufacturing processes in harmony with nature ecological cycles. It aims to eliminate toxic wastes and inputs and ultimately promotes the judicious use of renewable energy and materials.
- Using dedicated equipment for special reaction
- Making the production line and reaction process clean, re-circulates ecologically safe materials and solvents, manage and control all the production procedure according to SOPs, especially for the distillation, drying and packaging step.
It is our policy to control packing, preservation, and marking processes (including materials used) to the extent necessary to ensure conformance to specified requirements and shall identify, preserve, and segregate all product from the time of receipt/dispatch until the supplier's/our responsibility ceases.
2.1 Homogenization of the product batch
- Before the packaging of the product batch, the material must be homogeneous Otherwise different drums of one batch could have different properties.
- Homogenization is possible by mixing of the whole batch in a vessel by stirring.
2.2 Packaging and labeling
- drums or containers must be clean
- visible check of the inside of the drums or containers with a torch
- labeling before or immediately after the filling with product name, batch number, content and name of the manufacturer
- immediate close of the containers to avoid contamination
- no mixing with other product batches after filling-danger of contamination with the wrong product/no homogeneity of the batch
- storage of the containers in designated areas: "before sampling"--"released material"--"rejected material"
2.3 Production batches, crude material
- Drums or containers, which contain crude material of earlier production steps, must be labeled in the same way with:
in order to prevent the contamination of products with other materials by mixing up drums which are not labeled.
In order to ensure delivery of a product in the same condition we received it, it is our policy to always provide methods and means of handling that prevent damage or deterioration.
In order to prevent damage or deterioration of product, it is our policy to always provide secure storage areas or stock rooms pending use, or delivery. Appropriate methods for authorizing receipt and the dispatch to and from such areas shall be stipulated.
To detect deterioration, it is our policy to always assess the condition of product in stock at appropriate intervals.
In order to assure an undamaged product is delivered, it is our policy to always arrange for the protection of the quality of product after final inspection and test.
It is also our policy, where contractually specified, to extend this protection to include deliver to destination.
