    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers the identification of:

    1.1.1 The drug contained in the prefilled syringe or delivery system.

    1.1.2 The concentration, volume, and total amount of the drug, and whether it is to be diluted prior to administration.

    1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

    Note 1: The values in SI units are the recommended values.
