All products included in the stability programs are products with a Drug Identification Number (DIN) or a Natural Product Number (NPN). A batch of each product is tested every 3 to 6 months for 3 or 4 years, depending on the established expiry date of the product. This procedure includes the testing for potency, identity and purity including tests for degradation break down by-products. Physical tests may include disintegration, hardness, pH, etc. The first two lots of a new product are put on a long term stability program. At the end of a testing cycle, a new lot is put in the program. This is the continuous stability mode and is in force as long as the product is marketed.
