EU Recommends Suspending Hundreds of Drugs Tested by Indian Firm


    The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) based in the United Kingdom recently revealed that the European Union (EU) is recommending that it should suspend imports and exports of certain medicines for oral use that were manufactured by a company called Ranbaxy. 

    This recommendation was made after revelations from the FDA of India, where they have found widespread evidence of data manipulation and fabrication at Ranbaxy plants in India. The data indicated poor quality control. 

    The MHRA has decided to consider the EU’s request to suspend trade with these medicines manufactured by Ranbaxy while they conduct their own investigations into the matter.

    The MHRA are conducting their own thorough investigation into this matter, but in the meantime, they consider it prudent to recommend that the EU should suspend all imports and exports of oral liquid medicines manufactured by Ranbaxy. These recommendations were made following advice from Indian authorities. 

    This decision is without prejudice to any further action which may be decided upon as a result of the MHRA investigation. This decision is restricted to medicines manufactured in the plant at Dewas and does not extend to any other Ranbaxy products or plants.
