The announcement – which was made during the PIC/S meeting in Kiev, Ukraine earlier this month – will see the organisation become the 42nd and 43rd authorities to join the international harmonised good manufacturing practices (GMP) group.

The meeting also saw discussion of the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) Inspector training Programme, which was developed in response to requests from several national drug regulatory agencies.
