CDSCO Trains New Drug Inspectors in Linewith Global Standards

The Central Drug Standards Control Organization (CDSCO) has trained 100 drug inspectors and is in process of training 85 assistant drug inspectors on auditing manufacturing units for Good manufacturing Practices(GMP) across the country.

India exports to around 200 countries across the globe and to ensure the quality of products, it is important to increase the inspections and audits of manufacturing units in line with current good manufacturing practices (cGMP) adopted globally. Following the increase in the count of drug regulators at CDSCO to more than 500, an additional 1,195 posts were sanctioned for the upgradation of manpower and labs under the 12th Five Year Plan. CDSCO is training its drug inspectors in risk-based assessment for which many GMP training programmes have been concluded last year.

With the increase in global regulatory requirements for both regulated and non-regulated markets, CDSCO is rendering training programmes to confer uniformity in GMP inspections for increased compliance.

Recently, during an inspection CDSCO collaborated international inspectors with state drug inspectors as observers to carry out joint inspections. The exercise is meant to monitor manufacturing plants for quality and compliance. The whole exercise was enriching in terms of sharing knowledge and suggestions from global regulatory counterparts on continuing good manufacturing practices.

The Indian drug manufacturers will adopt global practices followed in other countries to produce high-quality products. Eventually, the inspection and audits will be hassle free with all the methodologies in global accepted manner.
