The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has said that it would clamp- down on manufacturers whose food products had no mobile authentication.
In a swift reaction to the abuse of its regulatory powers, the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) yesterday clamped down on manufacturers of antibiotics and anti-malarial, whose products are yet to adopt the agency’s Mobile Authentication Service (MAS) to detect counterfeits.
Director-General of NAFDAC, Dr. Paul Orhii, said there was no going back on enforcement of compliance with the MAS deadline, which has previously been shifted twice in the last three years due to the plea for more time by segments of the pharmaceutical industry and other key players.
Orhii said NAFDAC has the full support of the President and Minister of Health, Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu, to enforce implementation of the service in a bid to eradicate counterfeit drugs in the country.
