Management of change

Robust programs and tools to minimize risk

Our Management of Change (MOC) and Change Notification Service (CNS) programs help you stay in control of changing situations, minimizing risks to your production processes.

How Avantor's MOC and CNS programs work

  • Conditions that may be subject to change are proactively identified by Avantor's team of experts
  • Associated risks are evaluated and key staff in your organization are notified, per MOC procedure
  • Information on what level of change control is communicated for impacted raw materials

We currently have two MOC programs tied to specific Avantor and VWR, part of Avantor, brands.

Avantor Management of Change Program:

The Avantor MOC program puts key information into your hands for J.T.Baker® and Macron Fine Chemicals™ brand products so you can stay in control of changing situations and minimize risks associated with changes to manufacturing processes.

These products are classified under change control tiers to ensure you always get the MOC notification you need for each specific product. You will receive Change Notification communications from Avantor via your registered email if you have either enrolled in our Management of Change (MOC) program or have directly purchased an affected product within the past three years.
