6.13 REGISTRATION OF DRUGS

Drug registration is the vehicle for ensuring that government has control over drugs that are offered for sale and use in the country. It ensures that drugs distributed in the country have been produced under Good Manufacturing Practices and have passed the tests of need, efficacy, safety and good quality. It is an essential element in limiting the number and types of drugs and drug products brought into or manufactured in the country. It is also the instrument by which new drugs can be added to, and old drugs found unsuitable removed from, the list of approved drugs.

In light of this, government shall:

i. Continue to strengthen the drug registration mechanism that is presently in place within the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control [NAFDAC];.

ii. Ensure that all drugs (human and veterinary), traditional, homeopathic preparations, as well as vitamin and mineral supplements are registered.;

iii. Ensure periodic and regular publication and wide dissemination of the list of registered drugs; and.

iv. Prescribe the imposition of appropriate sanctions on any violation of the laws, regulations and guidelines on drug registration.
