NMC Mandate : Medical Colleges, PG institutions to enrol as Adverse Drug Reaction monitoring centres

30 Jan 2023 • The Union government has asked all medical colleges and post-graduate medical institutions in the country to sign up as adverse drug reaction monitoring centres (AMCs), in a bid to promote patient safety. The decision comes in the backdrop of controversy over the deaths of children in Gambia and Uzbekistan allegedly due to contaminated cough syrups. The direction, made by the National Medical Commission (NMC) under the health ministry, comes after the Indian Pharmacopoeia Commission (IPC) made a request in this respect.

“All recognized medical colleges and standalone PG institutions are informed that IPC is functioning as the national co-ordination centre, pharmacovigilance programme of India (PvPI) to collect, analyze and monitor the adverse drug reactions (ADRs) from Indian population to promote patient safety and safeguard the health of patients by ensuring the benefits of use of medicines outweigh the risk associated with its use,"" said Dr Pulkesh Sharma, secretary, NMC.
