    @ Ankur

    Having an Office in India will help FDA to maintain the quality and safety of the products exported from India.

    Same time, this will boost the Pharma exports, coz more and more pharma manufacturing houses will try to get FDA approval and keep the QA/QC at high standards.

    FDA also wants to depute personnel to India’s proposed pharmaceuticals watchdog, Central Drug Authority. This will ease the regulatory constraints between the countries.

    Thanks for dropping by
