Currently master planning is calculating the batch expiration date for planned orders based on the requirements date and not on the planned manufacturing date.
Next to that the sellable days (set on the customer) is not included in the master planning engine for (IC) planned orders or (IC) stock.

In Life Science batch expiration dates and (customer) sellable days are key for accurate planning of batch orders, especially for perishable products. So on planned orders the sellable days should be taken into account for existing stock and planned stock.
In (intercompany) planning with iterations the correct planned batch expiration date should be calculated based on the planned manufacturing date (taking start date or end date; this may be a parameter - and if not, the start date should be taken).

The work around solution to add a buffer as a safety margin is not viable for Life Science companies with perishable products.
