Title Safety in the scale-up and transfer of chemical processes.
Bibliographic information Safety Guide SG-14, Manufacturing Chemists Association, 1825 Connecticut Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C., USA, 1978. 5p.
Abstract This guide is intended to help prepare a plan to scale-up and transfer a process from the laboratory or pilot plant to the manufacturing plant. Responsibilities of staff are outlined and safety check details are given (characterisation of product, chemistry of process, raw materials, process flow sheets, equipment and instrumentation, safety considerations, operating procedures, analysis and process controls, final product). Inadequacies of the original data and similar information found during the scale-up and transfer should be part of the feedback to the pertinent departments.
