Time: 3:45 pm - 4:15 pm

Date: 28 April 2020


The Manufacturing Classification System (MCS) for oral solid dosage forms is based on processing route and properties of the API. The MCS is intended as a tool to rank the feasibility of different routes for the manufacture of tablets, based on selected properties of the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) and the needs of the formulation, (1) The MCS enables the selection of the best process, and aid subsequent transfer to manufacturing.
