India Establishes Committees to Streamline Regulatory Framework and Address Denovo Products
Published on: October 14th, 2021
The MOH Has Formed a Committee to Address a De Novo Drugs, Cosmetics and Medical Devices Act
The Department of Health and Family Welfare under Ministry of Health has formed a committee to frame a De Novo Drugs, Cosmetics and Medical Devices Act. This comes after representations were made in the past that there is a need for additional guidance/requirements for New Drugs, Cosmetics and Medical Devices as the current act is completely obsolete dating as back as 1940. The centre has constituted a committee for framing/preparing new drugs, cosmetics and medical device laws.
This committee shall undertake pre-legislative consultations and examine the present Act, previously framed drugs and cosmetics bills and submit a draft document for a de-novo drugs, cosmetics and medical devices bill by November 30, 2021. The newly formed eight-member panel is headed by the Drugs Controller General of India (DCGI) VG Somani.
