Regulatory Roundup: USP Expands Presence in India

ePT--the Electronic Newsletter of Pharmaceutical Technology

The US Pharmacopeia (USP) opened last week a newly expanded state-of-the-art facility in the IKP Knowledge Park of Hyderabad, India. The facility expands USP’s presence in the area from 14,000 square feet to more than 100,000 square feet. An additional 20 employees, from the base number of 70, will be added throughout the coming year.

Former FDA Commissioner Dr. Charles Edwards has passed away. During his tenure, "Dr. Edwards was one of the country’s most ardent drug safety advocates, ordering the extensive review of over-the-counter drugs for safety, effectiveness, and accuracy in labeling," wrote current Commissioner Margaret Hamburg in a letter on the FDA website. Dr. Edwards led FDA from December 1969 to March 1973, during which time he steered the agency towards a greater regulatory role and helped to double the agency’s budget.
