PHARMACEUTICALS EXPORT PROMOTION COUNCIL
(Set up by Ministry of Commerce, Govt., of India)
STANDARD INPUT OUTPUT NORMS
All the Members of Council,
Sub: Applications for ratification of Input Output Norms
As our members are aware, Director General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) fixes/reviews the Standard Input/Output Norms (SIONs) for various Bulk Drugs & Formulations on the basis of date/applications received from pharmaceutical exporters. The applications are considered by the Norms Committee (NC) headed by Exports Commissioner in DGFT office Delhi. Pharmexcil is a Member of the Committee and DGFT regularly takes help of Pharmexcil for fast disposal of applications.
In a recently held Norms Committee meeting, the Chairman observed that most of the applications received for fixation/ratification of Ad-hoc SION are not accompanied by earlier details which could be of relevance for speeding up the process of ratification. This information is relevant for speedy disposal of the applications.
In view of the above, the Chairman Norms Committee, DGFT has requested Pharmexcil to inform its members to attach earlier applications /copy of the earlier decision/technical details and other relevant details like chemical analysis, manufacturing process along with the fresh applications.
We request all our members to kindly take note of the above advise from DGFT and submit the applications with all relevant details to DGFT.
