New quality laboratory for drugs
Last week, the Salvadoran Government has inaugurated the drug quality laboratory, which main goal is to examine all pharmaceutical products being sold in the local market.
This laboratory is considered one of the most modern in Central America and will guarantee the efficiency and safety of all the drugs that are being sold in El Salvador.
With the opening of the research laboratory, the Salvadorian government is fulfilling the last requirement to implement the Drug Law.
The main objective of this new office is to ensure the quality and safety of the drugs that enter the local market. The selected staff at the laboratory is highly qualified and is expected to maintain high standards of ethics and confidentiality.
According to Legislative Decree No. 1008, the Bureau of National Drugs may proceed with the removal of samples from local pharmacies to carry out the respective analysis, while manufacturer or distributor are obliged to fulfill stock in pharmacies and pay the costs of the analysis performed.
