|Notify Approved Testing Facilities for Specified Standards in Different Cities and Display on Website|
|Reform Description||Before: Pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities/factories were required to have either their own testing facilities for verification of products standard or they were required to obtain prior permission from DRAP to get these tests done from private laboratories.
After: Now for standard testing, DRAP has notified accredited laboratories from which the pharmaceutical businesses can simply get their tests done without going through the prior approval mechanism of DRAP.
|BeneficiariesAutomotive Owners||Healthcare / Pharmaceutical|
|Jurisdiction/ Location||Federal (Entire Pakistan)|
|Department||Ministry of National Health Services Regulation and Coordination (MoNHSR&C) / Drug Regulatory Authority of Pakistan (DRAP)|
|Date of Implementation||27-04-2022|
|Details||Difficulty||Individual factories were required to have testing facilities for verification of standards of products. Establishing individual testing facility was expensive and getting approval for outsourcing from DRAP was cumbersome.|
|Analysis||This resulted in wastage of time as the companies had to communicate and obtain approvals from DRAP.|
|Solution||Now for standard testing, DRAP has notified accredited laboratories from which the pharmaceutical businesses can simply get their tests done without going through the prior approval mechanism of DRAP. Also any user can search on DRAPs website and reach out to the facility regarding their product certification.|
