India reports quality shortcomings of Chinese pharma companies

In response to shortcomings Indian government has issued a showcause notices to eight Chinese pharmaceutical companies. Those companies were inspected by a special Indian inspection team and were found to supply poor quality APIs to drug manufacturers in India.

The eight Chinese companies who could be blacklisted by the Drug Controller General of India (DCGI) are:

  • M/S QiluTianhe Pharmaceuticals
  • M/S Hinan Xinxiang Pharmaceuticals,
  • M/S GuangzhaoBaiyunshan Pharmaceuticals,
  • M/S ShouguangFukang Pharmaceuticals,
  • M/S Qilu Antibiotics (Linyi) Pharmaceuticals,
  • M/S QindaoBrightmoonSeawoods and
  • M/S ShanghaoiXiandiaHasen (Shangqiu) Pharmaceuticals.

However, these companies supply a big part of the overall raw material to India. Therefore, imposing restrictions against them could result in a shortage of medicines in India. Overall, 70% of raw material comes from China, mostly due to the fact that it is four times cheaper than those produced in India. Meanwhile, the Indian government has decided to inspect APIs imported from other countries such as the United States, Italy and other European nations.
