Abstract: What is an expiry date? Quite simply, it is an assurance that a medicinal product will meet applicable standards of identity, strength, quality and purity at the time of use. However, this assurance is not all-encompassing; it is only applicable under the storage conditions specified by the manufacturer on the labelling and packaging following extensive stability studies. Failure to provide for the storage conditions specified by pharmaceutical manufacturers invalidates this assurance and consequently, it is the responsibility of manufacturers, distributors, importers and dispensing pharmacists to ensure that adequate provisions are taken in their premises in this regard throughout the shelf life of the product.
