The implementation of USP 665 and BPOG
This paper provides critical information about USP 665, USP 1665, and the Biophorum (BPOG) extractable protocol, to support the pharmaceutical manufacturing sector in complying with these new, mandatory standards. Learn more about single-use bioprocessing systems used in the production of biopharmaceutical drug products and how the risk management process is defined.
Are you ready for USP 665 and PBOG?
USP 665 and USP 1665 standards were approved in early 2023 to address the risk of extractables and leachables (E&L) in plastic components and systems used in the manufacture of pharmaceutical products. USP 665 is mandatory and comes into effect on May 1, 2026.
Why are regulations changing?
Pharmaceutical manufacturing processes traditionally used glass and stainless-steel equipment. Today, polymeric single-use manufacturing equipment is seen as advantageous over traditional materials. The Increased use of single-use technologies in the biopharmaceutical industry has led to a shift in the end-user/supplier relationship. USP 665 outlines considerations for characterizing and qualifying plastic components.

The implementation of USP 665 and BPOG: abstract
Through a hypothetical case study, this Whitepaper provides an overview of USP<665>, USP<1665> and the Biophorum (BPOG) Extractable protocol for Single-Use bioprocessing systems used in the production of biopharmaceutical drug products.
Additionally, this paper highlights how the risk management process, defined in USP<665> and USP<1665>, can be implemented using a hypothetical scenario.
The implementation of USP 665 and BPOG: excerpt
'Regulatory agencies require end-users to ensure that the materials used to manufacture the pharmaceutical/biopharmaceutical product are suitable for their intended use. In this regard USP<665> has been drafted with the end process in mind, the level of testing and reporting thresholds required for data are therefore, process-specific.'
