Introductory Paragraph: To accommodate changing requirements and encourage the adoption of new technology, India’s Ministry of Health and Family Welfare released a draft bill in July 2022 to replace the existing Drugs and Cosmetics Act 1940. This act governs drug importation, production, and distribution across the country. The act's main goal is to ensure that all drugs and cosmetics sold in India are safe, effective, and meet international standards.1 It also focuses on ensuring the quality, safety, efficacy, and performance of new drugs, as well as on the clinical investigation of investigational medical devices.
