Regulation is of supreme importance in case of the foodstuffs, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries. It is the responsibility of every National Government to protect their native populace from health hazards caused by intake of tainted edibles or topical ointments. By introducing regulatory guidelines, the administrative bodies put the onus on manufacturers to churn out healthy produce from factories and processing units. And there are certain bodies which professionally assist in this process. MRA Regulatory Consultants of South Africa is one of them.
It was set up back in 2003 with the chief intention of providing regulatory advice to the pharmaceutical industry, though presently their services cover the cosmetic and processed food businesses as well. They maintain the most up-to-date software that allows them to publish eCTDs and paper CTDs on the various firms whose regulatory qualifications they check. What they chiefly do is, help firms speed up their registration process by providing them with correct and educated information about the regulatory guidelines prevalent in the nation of South Africa. Their services cover all the sectors dealing with ingestible items, including: Allopathic Medicine, Homeopathy, Medicinal devices, Veterinary Medicines, Stock Remedies, Farm Feed, Cosmetics and Foodstuffs. MRA not only helps firms to get registered quickly, but they also ensure that their clients end up with the GMP (Good Manufacturing Practises) stamp, an international standard governing all parameters that decide the definition of ‘healthy’.
They prepare and review: Site master files, Standard Operating Procedures, License Applications and renewal of license. Apart from conducting reviews and third party inspectors, they help in firms’ self-reviews and carry out audits at manufacturing units.
