The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will launch their official website this year, according to the department.
The FDA will publish a list of approved products, including groceries, drinking water brands, cosmetics and medical products, Daw Khin Saw Hla, assistant director of FDA, told Myanmar Business Today.
“Through the website we will keep the public informed about health related issues. People will be able to know what medicines are officially approved and what are not. They are aware that those products without FDA approval are not suitable for their health,” she said.
FDA will publish announcements and procedures to apply for FDA approval on the website.
The department is currently aiming to promote the distribution of quality products in the market by collaborating with the relevant township administrations and also expanding its lab to provide more extensive technical support.
