Anvisa holds seminar or drug disposal

Brazilian drug regulator Anvisa wants to engage with the pharmaceutical industry on the disposal of unused drugs.

The National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa) and the Brazilian Agency for Industrial Development (ABDI) will hold a seminar later today on ‘Reverse Logistics’ – the collection of out of date drugs and pharmaceutical waste.

The central theme will be that efforts to comply with 2010 rules on the disposal of medicines should involve feasibility studies conducted by all parties involved in the life cycle and regulation of drugs.

Anvisa said the seminar “will be an opportunity for government agencies, entities representing the drug industry, health professionals, organized society and other stakeholders to broaden the knowledge on the topic.”
