The National Medicines Quality Control Laboratory (NMQCL) is one of the five departments in the Pharmacy and Medicines Regulatory Authority directly reporting to the Director General. It derives its mandate from section 79 of the PMRA Act.
- The laboratory informs and facilitates regulatory decision-making by generating scientific evidence and reports on the quality of regulated products. It performs quality control tests on the following:
- Human Medicines
- Veterinary Medicines
- Hand Sanitizers (liquids & gels)
The minimum required quantities for testing can be obtained from the Sample requirement guideline. Upon the completion of the sample analysis, the NMQCL issues certificate of analysis to clients.
