There’s a new medical regulator in town

As far as the regulation of medicine is concerned, the local pharmaceutical industry has been long-suffering, waiting anything from two to seven years to register new medicines and clinical trials.
It’s been an absolute nightmare. Just ask any CEO of the 26-member companies of the Innovative Pharmaceutical Association of South Africa (IPASA) – 99% will say this is their biggest challenge, says CEO Dr Konji Sebati. “With every delay there is a patient who suffers.”
However, with the South African Health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA) officially in place as of June 1, she hopes this debacle will come to an end. The authority takes over from the Medicines Control Council (MCC) – which has played this role since 1965 and ceased to exist on Wednesday.
