Tough new laws giving effect to the Government’s policy on medicinal drugs will require all manufacturers, importers and sellers to register with a new Authority and conform to strict new procedures.

This is to ensure that poor quality or outdated drugs are not passed off to patients.

The move will benefit thousands of Sri Lankans who fall victim every day.

Titled the Medicinal Drugs, Devices and Cosmetics Authority, the new body will issue licences to those in the trade.

Deputy health Minister Lalith Dissanayaka stated that Health Minister Mathripala Sirisena will hold the chairmanship of the new body.
