Cosmetic products labeling may carry names of ingredient as per DCC recommendation

Jun '05
At the 36th meeting, Drugs Consultative Committee (DCC) has decided to include labeling of ingredients on cosmetic products under the Labeling Provisions of the Drugs and Cosmetics Rules. In the light of the recommendations of the DCC, labeling provisions under Rule 148 of the Drugs and Cosmetics Rules will be modified requiring cosmetic products to mention the ingredients on the labels in descending order.

The two-day meeting of the State Drug Controllers which ended today also decided to include statutory provisions relating to Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) under the Drugs and Cosmetics Rules, 1945.

It may be recalled that the Mashelkar Committee report vide para 12.7 (A) had recommended that Drugs and Cosmetics Rules should be amended to include GLP norms as statutory requirements for approved testing laboratories and also the in-house testing laboratories of manufacturers.

The draft GLP rules framed in the light of the recommendations were considered in the Drugs Consultative Committee and suggestions incorporated.

The Consultative Committee on Drugs also examined the report of the sub-committee on drug testing laboratories and has decided to incorporate development of performance indicators for drug regulatory agencies and possibilities of their audits. The Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare is keen on developing international regulatory standards for drugs and cosmetics in India and is in the process of implementing a Rs.400 crore capacity building projects in this regard. The first step in this direction has already been initiated with the construction of a Food and Drugs Bhawan in Delhi. The National Pharmacovigilance programme has been launched to create a data bank on adverse drug reactions in the country.
