Govt to conduct quality check of exported drugs

As per the union health minister, Mr J P Nadda, the isolated reports of export of allegedly substandard drugs by Indian Pharmaceutical companies to other countries including African countries have been received.

"Drugs for export are manufactured under license granted by the State Licensing Authorities. The reports on quality of exported drugs, when received by the Central Drugs Standard Control Organization (CDSCO) are investigated jointly by CDSCO and the concerned State Drugs Controllers. Based on the findings of the investigations, the State Licensing Authorities take suitable action under the provisions of the Drugs and Cosmetics Act, 1940 and Rules made there under," Mr Nadda stated this in a written reply in the Parliament on December 23.
