Indian state to train employees to think like FDA inspectors

Underwriters Laboratories will train 60 food-and-drug inspectors for India's Gujarat state government so that they begin to assess drug manufacturing plants in the same way that U.S. FDA inspectors do. Gujarat is the first of several state FDA-type regulators UL expects to sign up for the training program. UL uses online programs to teach international regulatory guidelines covering drug quality and safety. It comes as the U.S. and India have signed agreements to increase cooperation in the pharma industry and at a time when the FDA has cited a long list of manufacturers for failing GMP standards.
