The Lok Sabha has passed the The Assisted Reproductive Technology (Regulation) Bill, 2020 that proposes the Establishment of a National Registry and Registration Authority for all Clinics and Medical Professionals serving in the field.
Health Minister Shri Mansukh Mandaviya, while moving the Bill for passage, said several suggestions of the Standing Committee have been considered by the Government to improve the legislation.
The Bill seeks to Regulate and supervise Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) Clinics and ART banks, prevent misuse, adopt safe and ethical practices and so on.
Many such ART Clinics have been running without Regulation. A need was felt for regulation of such Clinics as there are implications on health of those who undertake the procedures, Mr Mandaviya told the House.
The Bill also has a provision that those involved in trafficking and sale of embryos will be fined ₹10 lakh at first instance and in second instance, the person can be imprisoned for up to 12 years.
SInce Surrogacy bill is pending in the Upper House & that has not been passed, Health Minister said both the Bills would now be taken up in the Upper House together.

Global Services Conclave 2021 – India Serves: Exploring Potential Growth Sectors Beyond IT/ITes
Global Services Conclave 2021 “India Serves: Exploring Potential Growth Sectors Beyond IT/ITes” 10.00 AM-4.30 PM, Tuesday, 9th November 2021 New Delhi, Delhi 110021
The service sector has invited considerable interest among policymakers for its larger contribution to global output, contributing almost more than three-fifths of global GDP and about half of the employment opportunities across the world.
India’s service sector is no exception to the global service composition as its share is over 60 per cent of the national output. India has emerged as a global hub for the supply of various services, and today India exports over $200 billion of services annually, which contribute to 7% of India’s GDP. Services account for 54 per cent of India’s Gross Value Added (GVA) and account for more than 40 per cent of India’s total global exports. Services exports lead directly to the employment of approximately 2.6 crores people in India while leading to indirect employment as well.
Despite the pandemic, the sector has shown immense resilience and services exports stood at $ 206 billion in 2020-21 showing a decline of only 3 per cent. Throughout the decade (2010 to 2021) the CAGR of the services sector has been 6%. Based on trends and present performance of the sector SEPC has projected a target of $250 bn for services exports in the FY 2021-22 and a target of US$ 1 trillion including IT and ITES by 2030 as suggested by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India.
In the above context, SEPC is organising its first Global Services Conclave on 9th Nov 2021 which will be an annual feature of SEPC henceforth.
The Conclave will focus on deliberations and discussions to create a roadmap to achieve the projected target. While there will be talks on key service sectors, the focus will be on capacity building, enhancing competitiveness, MSME support, creating jobs, policy recommendations and more.
Looking forward to your participation as our distinguished Sponsor for this prestigious event. Please find attached the presentation on Sponsorship.

Undoubtedly, and undeniably, sustainable development is the greatest challenge of our age. From climate change and environmental degradation, poverty and disease to an increasing material and resources footprint – the global society continues to face ecological problems old and new.
How can we power the shift to sustainable practices? Why is it important to account for the value of nature in our balance sheets?
With Shaping Sustainability: Investing in Our Future as its theme, IKMC2021, IKP’s flagship annual International Knowledge Millennium Conference, will deliberate virtually on these issues with curated sessions led by thought leaders.
CDSCO Announcement – BA BE Centres to apply online for Registration Process
CDSCO to move application process for registration of centers for BA/BE studies online from Oct 15 2021
CDSCO has released a notification recently on registration process for BA/ BE Centers.
The National Drug Regulator has switched the applications for registration of bioavailability/bioequivalence (BA/BE) studies from the industry, from physical to digital from the middle of this month – 15th Oct 2021. This is in line with the Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation’s (CDSCO) efforts to implement an e-governance mechanism in the organisation.
The Drugs Controller General (India) Dr V G Somani, in a notice, said that the CDSCO, in collaboration with Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (CDAC), has developed a module for online processing of applications for registration of BA/BE study centres in accordance with New Drugs and Clinical Trial Rules, 2019.
The module is finalised and has been made functional, which can be accessed through the dedicated website of CDSCO. The drug regulatory also requested all concerned stakeholders to avail the facility and welcomed any comments or suggestions to help improve the module.
“Thereafter, the BA/BE centre registration applications processing will be online and physical applications may not be accepted after October 15, 2021, in this regard,” said the notice.
The move comes as CDSCO’s efforts to implement the e-governance mechanism with various online services launched through the Sugam portal on November 14, 2015.
On September 30, the CDSCO has said that the submission of applications on Post Approval Changes in bioavailability (BA)/bioequivalence (BE) study permission and import license for export purpose is functional on online system of Sugam portal, in order to streamline the regulatory submission procedure.
“The facility of offline submission of applications in hard copy or through e-mail may not be available after October 8, 2021, for processing,” said a notice, issued to all stakeholders, State and Union Territory Licensing Authorities and others.
The Sugam e-governance portal has been designed as a single window system for all the stakeholders to access the services provided by the portal, by implementing role based access control and actions. It has consolidated the entire drug regulatory framework at centre and provides a centralised dashboard for monitoring various regulatory clearances all over the country.
The portal is well integrated with the e-Nivesh that is the National portal to provide the project proponent/entrepreneur with all requisite information under one umbrella, which will reduce delays in various regulatory processes. SUGAM enables ease of business by providing the integrated workflow right from making an application for grant of permission/ license, online payment, online review process, query management and grant of permission/license online. Sugam portal internally builds the database of drugs & manufacturers and their current regulatory status (approved/ banned) in India, according to C-DAC, which created the portal.
Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Ministry of Science & Technology, Government of India launched CDSA on 28 September 2009 as an extramural unit of Translational Health Science & Technology Institute (THSTI). It was created to facilitate development of affordable healthcare products for public health diseases. Registered as a not-for profit research organization, it aims to develop an eco-system for training and learning and work with public sector institutions, and small and medium enterprises (SME) to translate innovative technologies into medical products for public good.
There is an ever-growing demand for trained and certified Good Clinical Practice (GCP) professionals in the clinical research arena both in academia and in industry. Setting up an uniform system to achieve the desired competence standard using internationally accepted best practice for ‘Assessment’ and ‘Certification’ is the key to addressing this unmet need.
To this end, a Certification Scheme for GCP professionals based on the International ‘Personnel Certification’ standard (ISO 17024:2012) has been developed by CDSA-THSTI.
The GCP professional certification scheme has two aspects – a system of accreditation of Training Institutions to ensure standardised, high-quality GCP training and GCP Professionals Certification (by Third-Party Certification) to promote certification of professionals both within the country and across the globe.
GCPPCS is owned by the Clinical Development Services Agency (CDSA)-Translational Health Science & Technology Institute (THSTI). THSTI is an autonomous institution under the Department of Biotechnology, Ministry of Science & Technology, Government of India. CDSA-THSTI as Scheme Owner, has the Steering Committee, Technical Committee and Assessment Committee to draft, review and approve the relevant documents and effective implementation of the Scheme. These committees are comprised of multiple stakeholders for example subject and process experts with representatives from ministries, regulator, government agencies, industry, academia, accreditation body, certification body, training institutions and civil society organisations.
Upcoming Program on GCPPCS :
CDSA has successfully completed two webinars for creating awareness and generating interest amongst the Personnel Certification Bodies, Training Institutions and individual GCP professionals for the Good Clinical Practice Professional Certification Scheme (GCPPCS) on September 22 and October 6, 2021.
The next webinar, specifically designed for the Training Institutions, is scheduled for October 20, 2021 from 1400 hrs. Prof Y K Gupta would be delivering the Opening Remarks.
