Laboratories for testing AYUSH medicines in India

Regulatary Provisions Regarding Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani and Homoeopathic Medicines

Adequate regulatory provisions are available under the Drugs and Cosmetics Act, 1940 and Drugs and Cosmetics Rules, 1945 for regulating and monitoring the quality, safety and efficacy of Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani and Homoeopathy medicines in the country.

Licensing Authorities are appointed by the State Governments to oversee the enforcement of legal provisions for the manufacturing of ASU drugs.  Guidelines for licensing requirements, Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and adherence to standards of drugs as prescribed in the pharmacopoeia are mandatory for the manufacturing of licensed products to ensure quality, safety and efficacy of ASU medicines. Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani Drugs Technical Advisory Board (ASUDTAB) and Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani Drugs Consultative Committee (ASUDCC) are statutory bodies under the Drugs and Cosmetics Act to advise the Central and State Governments on technical matters and for securing uniformity throughout the country in the administration of the Act and Rules thereunder.

The details of laboratories for testing quality of Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani and Homoeopathic (ASU&H) medicines are provided herewith
