Migration

(EMEA – CHMP) Release of substances (leachables) from the plastic component into the content of the container under conditions which reproduce those of the intended use.

Migration

The transfer of digital information from one hardware/software configuration to another or from one generation of computer technology to a subsequent generation. The purpose of migration is to preserve the integrity of digital objects and to retain the ability for clients to retrieve, display, and otherwise use them in the face of constantly changing technology.

For convenience, migration can be sub-divided into the categories format migration (conversion), system migration, and media migration.
