Batch Manufacturing Record (BMR)

Pharmaceutical industries are involved in the manufacturing of medicinal products which are finally utilized by the patients so a great level of care & compliance is required at each level of manufacturing.

What Is a Batch Manufacturing Record (BMR)?

1. A batch manufacturing record or BMR is a document that contains instructions on who a batch will be manufactured.

2. Also is the written instructions that must be followed step by step during the manufacturing of a batch.

3. Batch Manufacturing Record or BMR is a written document that contains the history of a specific batch of a product

BMR contains all the information regarding the manufacturing process along with the equipment used.BMR guides the operators & qualified persons on how a specific activity must be performed using which equipment & at which parameters.

How Batch Manufacturing Record or BMR Is Issued?

The quality assurance department has a master copy or master file of the BMR and prints the BMR after giving a specified Batch number to that batch.

Components of BMR

A Batch manufacturing Record or BMR consists of different components and can be divided into the following 2 main categories: 

- Fixed Components

- Attachable Components

1. Fixed components of the Batch manufacturing record or BMR are those portions that are printed from the Master BMR & include the following:

  • Batch Information
  • Personnel Deployment Sheet
  • Equipment Cleaning & Deployment Sheet
  • Bill Of Material
  • Critical Instructions
  • Manufacturing Procedure
  • Yield Portion
  • Batch Reconciliation
  • Batch Information

The first page of the BMR or Manufacturing Record contains important information related to the batch which is given below:

  • Product Name
  • Batch Number
  • Batch Size
  • Manufacturing Date
  • Expiry Date
  • BMR Revision Number
  • Brief Product Description Including,
  • Dosage Form
  • Shape
  • Dimension
  • Color
  • Storage Condition
  • Shelf Life

2. The second portion of BMR contains the sheet where the names of all the personnel involved in various activities are mentioned with date & sign, all checklists and additional IPC sheets.
