Socialization on Draft BPOM Regulation on Supervision of Manufacturing and Distribution of Traditional Medicines, Quasi Drugs, and Health Supplements
On 12 October, EuroCham attended the National Drug and Food Control Agency (BPOM) socialization on the Draft BPOM Regulation on the Supervision of Manufacturing and Distribution of Traditional Medicines, Quasi Drugs, and Health Supplements. The socialization was led by Irwan, Director of Supervision of Traditional Medicines and Health Supplements of BPOM.
