World Standards Day 2022 Program

Webinar – World Standards Day (WSD) 2022 Program on Role of Sustainability Standards in International Trade on Oct 14, 2022 – 4 30 pm – 6 00 pm

Sustainable Trade Development and Voluntary Sustainable Standards

Sustainable Development defines international trade as “an engine for inclusive economic growth and poverty reduction, that contributes to the promotion of sustainable development”.

The exponential increase in global trade has enabled many developing countries to pursue economic development through export and export diversification. On the other hand, the nature of trade has changed and that products are now made by bringing parts together from different parts of the world.

Although the expansion of international trade, in the last decade, has brought economic and societal benefits across the globe, it resulted in failing to address the adverse social and environmental and even economic impacts.

Hence, in order for trade to become a ‘sustainable engine’, one approach that seems to be increasingly used is to internalize social, economic and environmental concerns in international trade.

Sustainability Standards play a central role in global trade, and greatly contribute to the improvement of  environmental and social compliance in supply chains. They represent guidelines used by producers, manufacturers, traders, retailers, and service providers to develop good environmental, social, ethical, and food safety practices.

Sustainability standards can unlock new markets for developing countries.

Go Green, Go Sustainable

More and more countries are pursuing green, social and/or sustainable public procurement, therefore standards can play an important role in identifying which products are sustainable.

Adhering to sustainable trade standards can enhance opportunities for market access to retail, corporate and government consumers who are concerned about the sustainability of the products they purchase and the resources they consume in production, use and disposal.

Program Objective

Consultants Consortium of Chennai is organising a Knowledge Session, on the occasion of World Standards Day (WSD), on October 14th 2022.

The program is designed on the topic Sustainability Standards based on the WSD Theme.

Objective of the program is to create awareness to businesses about various National and International Sustainability Standards and hoe implementing the same would increase trade and business opportunities across the globe.

Regulatory Updates for IVDMD

Recent Regulatory Updates from CDSCO for IVD Medical Devices in India

Since Class A and B Devices have to show mandatory compliance to Medical Device Rules 2017 in the country wef Ist Oct 2022, majority of the medical devices in India will come under the licensing regime from October 1 2022, as notified by the MoHFW, Govt of India.

In a review meeting held last week, Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya categorically stated there will be no deferment of the deadline and urged all manufacturers to register their medical devices within the set timeframe.

He also ordered the Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation to assist manufacturers who have not yet applied for registration.

As per the rules, unregistered devices will not be deemed authorised and manufacturers may face penal action

The registration will help in regulation of medical devices, establishing quality standards which will help in export of these devices and also make India an export hub for these devices soon

Currently, only 37 medical devices such as cardiac stents, heart valves, orthopedic implants, catheters, X-ray machines and ultrasound equipment are regulated under the Drugs and Cosmetics Act, 1940, for safety, quality and effectiveness.

A license is presently required to manufacture or import these 37 categories of medical devices

All 609 class A and 1,055 class B medical devices that are manufactured in India or are imported have to be registered and licensed by October 1 this year,  while 596 class C- moderate to high risk and 87 class D- high-risk devices have to be registered by October 1 next year.

IVDs are also Medical Devices and are subject to the same regulatory framework.

In view of these regulatory compliance, we have compiled the recent released Draft Notifications from CDSCO wrf to IVDs for reference :

Indian Made Omicron Test Kit

Tata Medical and Diagnostics has developed a kit “OmiSure” for detecting Omicron variants in RT-PCR Tests

Tata Medical and Diagnostics has developed a kit called “OmiSure” that can detect Omicron variants of SARS-CoV2 in nasopharyngeal / oropharyngeal specimens during RT-PCR testing. As per the company’s press release, the test kit is compatible with all standard real-time PCR machines. This kit can detect Omicron variants as well as other variants of SARS-CoV2 reported so far.

Currently, patients with Omicron are detected only after genomic sequencing. This test helped eliminate that step and could make detections during the test. The kit was developed to detect new variants of SARS-CoV2 directly and very specifically. Head of Research and Development , TATAMD said the first target is based on the S gene dropout or S gene target disorder (SGTF) and the second target is based on the S gene mutation amplification (SGMA). The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has approved the kit.

Presently, the Omicron variant is being detected using test kits developed by US-based Thermo Fisher which uses S-Gene Target Failure (SGTF) technology, which is also used by OmiSure.

In its letter approving the kit, the ICMR stated: “The tests have been performed as per the manufacturer’s instructions. Responsibility for batch-to-batch consistency lies with the manufacturer.”

The company had applied for a license with the Central Drugs Standard Control Organization (CDSCO). The kit will be manufactured by TATAMD at the Sriperumbudur facility in Tamil Nadu once the license is approved by the CDSCO. The company currently has daily capacity of 2,000,000 kits and plan to increase the capacity from 5,000,000 to 10,00,000 by the third week of January. The kits are manufactured in both the domestic and international markets. The company also applied for a patent for this kit .

Update from Pharmabiz News

DoP lists around 500 medical devices and equipment for which it could not identify any local manufacturers

Even though the government had way back in 2017 announced preference to Make-in India products under public procurement, the Department of Pharmaceuticals (DoP) has identified around 500 medical devices for which there is no data on the local manufacturers available even after its attempt to collect data from the domestic manufacturers association.

If no information is received till the end of December, the DoP will further proceed with the action, arriving that the local manufacturers are not available for these medical devices. This comes at a time when there has been a huge push towards Make in India projects and domestic industries have been demanding more preference to the local manufacturers.

For another 237 products it was able to collate data from the domestic medical devices manufacturing associations.

The Department of Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) has issued the Public Procurement (Preference to Make in India) Order, 2017, on September 16, 2020, following which the DoP had issued guidelines on February 16, 2021 for implementation of the Order related to procurement of goods and services in medical devices.

The DoP received various representations from the procuring agencies under the Government of India with regard to non-availability of Class I and Class II suppliers for identified medical devices or equipment. An exercise was done by the Department to ascertain the local manufacturers from different sources for these identified medical devices and equipment, including from the domestic manufacturers association.

“However, recognising that the manufacturers of the identified medical devices may be spread across the country and may not be member of any manufacturers Association and also to give a reasonable opportunity, the said medical devices/equipment, as received from the procurement agencies are being put in public domain to collect details of local manufacturers,” said a latest public notice issued by the DoP.

It has sought details including name of the manufacturing entity, address of registered office and manufacturing location, contact details, email ID and phone numbers, local content percentage of the medical devices, specifications of the medical device equipment and whether it is registered with the government e-Marketplace portal, for smooth implementation of the public procurement policy which gives preference to domestic manufacturers with sufficient local content.

If no information is received in the email-ID provided by the Department latest by December 31, 2021, further action will be taken, arriving that local manufacturers are not available for these medical devices/equipment.

For details of the specifications of the medical devices or equipment in the list, the manufacturer may contact agencies like Central Medical Service Society of Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Employees State Insurance Corporation of Ministry of Labour, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, Procuring agencies of Ministry of Railways, Director General of Armed Forces Medical Services and HLL Infra Tech Services Ltd of Ministry of Health.

The list 1 of 128 medical devices and equipment for which public procurement agencies were not able to identify local manufacturers include intra-aortic balloon pump, video assisted thoracic surgery and minimally invasive cardiac surgery instrument set, flow track cardiac out monitoring device, ENT Coblator system and standard set of wands, among others. The list 2 of 365 medical devices and equipment include 4D echocardiography, ambulatory blood pressure monitor continuous glucose monitoring system, animal simulator for pharmacology, antibiotic zone reader, blood bank management system using RFID technology, among others. The List 1 was based on details furnished by the procuring agencies till November, 2021 and the List 2 was based on further details submitted subsequently.
