SFDA To Strengthen Electronic Monitoring Of Drugs

This article was originally published in PharmAsia News

Executive Summary

By building a national surveillance network on the special drug monitoring platform launched last October, China State FDA will further strengthen electronic drug monitoring by gradually phasing in an electronic identification system. Anesthetics and category 1 psychotropic drugs are already under surveillance, while key pharmaceutical production and circulation companies will be mandated to electronically tag category 2 psychotropic drugs, plasma products, vaccines and TCM injections by Oct. 31. SFDA will draw up a catalog that includes all approved registered drugs to be entered in the surveillance network; firms involved must stick standard electronic codes on their smallest product packs before marketing. Once the electronic network is established, consumers may check on drugs by calling or go online via mobile phones. (Click here for more - Chinese Language)
