Reprocessing

(ICH Q7) Introducing an intermediate or API, including one that does not conform to standards or specifications, back into the process and repeating a crystallization step or other appropriate chemical or physical manipulation steps (e.g., distillation, filtration, chromatography, milling) that are part of the established manufacturing process. Continuation of a process step after an in process control test has shown that the step is incomplete is considered to be part of the normal process, and not reprocessing.
