CDSCO Website in its improved version with inclusion of Industry Guidance Documents

CDSCO website in new avatar. Since my last visit to the website, may be at a gap of a year, I realise, CDSCO has included various multidisciplinary topics. Navigation is made easy and search relatively better.
The best part is the inclusion of "Guidance to Industry" documents in the line of US FDA. The recent addition to this is a draft guidance for fixed dose combination.

There are separate sub-section for Medical devices and Diagnostics. Downloads having full text of Drugs & Cosmetics Law;

While all APIs registered as on date in India are listed, there are separate lists for formulations and vaccines registered for import.

There is also a list of all WHO GMP  certified facilities in India which are 817 in number. This information will be useful for foreign manufacturers which wanted to have contract manufacturing or any other kind of in-licensing business from India.

However, still I feel that there could be a better ways of segregation of different categories under the headings of drug products, drug substances, cosmetics, medical devices etc.

Anyway, to start and improve is still better to wait and watch !
