  1. In case of In-process during stage of packing weight check is very important, following are the procedure for the same:
  • Collect one bottle at half hourly interval.
  • Check weight of powder filled in each bottle and record on the BMR.
  • Discard the powder used for weight checking.
  • No bottle should contain weight less than the label claim  and more than the target fill weight + 2%.
  • If the weight is found to be outside the limits check weight from further 10 bottles at random from the bottles collected during the preceding half an hour.
  • If the weight of the powder is found outside the limit, set aside the bottles filled during the previous ½ hour for recovery.
