Minister of Health, Nutrition and Indigenous Medicine, Dr. Rajitha Senaratne, has taken steps to reduce several fees required for registration of medicinal drugs.

Accordingly, fees for drug registration under the National Medicines Regulatory Authority, new product registration and licensing fee have been reduced with effect from 5 January midnight.

The measures have been taken in response to a request made by the All Island Private Pharmacy Owners Association.

The association has pointed out to the Minister the numerous difficulties they had to face due to the Government’s decision to increase the processing fee for medicinal drugs and decision to reduce the prices of drugs.

The processing fee was increased according to a special gazette issued on 14 June 2017.
