To bring transparency, accountability and ensuring due diligence by pharma distributors in Andhra Pradesh, the State Drugs Control Administration has asked drug licensees to adhere to the principles of vendor validation and self-compliance measurements. The State Drugs Control Administration has asked distributors in the State to obtain the required data and keep it ready by March 15, 2021.
The authority informed that the objective of reiterating the statutory obligation is to prevent the entry of spurious drugs or cosmetics products manufactured outside the state, which are being marketed/traded/sold in the state by unscrupulous elements. With such measures, it will ensure the investigation to trace the responsible persons/firm, upon detection of such spurious drugs/cosmetics, since at times it is taking more than expected time
