Sub: Exemption from the requirement of registration by the Drug
Controller General of India, under the provisions of Drugs and Cosmetics
Act, for 100% EOUs/SEZ Units.
As you are aware, for import of drugs, registration under Drugs
and Cosmetics Act had been made mandatory with effect from 1.4.2003.
The Council had received representations that this is causing problem
for 100% EOUs/SEZ Units . Accordingly, we had taken up this issue
with Drug Controller General of India and Ministry of Commerce.
Ministry of Commerce had taken up this issue with Drug Controller
General of India as well.
Now DGFT has issued a Policy Circular No.9(RE-2003)/2002-2007 dated
30.6.2003 which has provided exemption to 100% EOUs/SEZ Units from
the condition of registration. However, if these units make supplies
to the domestic markets, they will have to follow the formalities
of registration under the Drugs and Cosmetics Act. The details may
please be seen in the above stated Policy Circular. Policy Circular
is available on the DGFT website www.nic.in/eximpol
This is for your information, please.
