Torrent Pharmaceuticals Limited on Thursday announced that the US drug regulator US Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) has issued an Establishment Inspection Report (“EIR”) for the company's manufacturing facility at Dahej, Gujarat, and that the inspection has now been successfully closed by the US FDA, through an exchange filing.
Based on the March 2019 Inspection outcome, the Dahej facility was placed under “Official Action Indicated (OAI)” by the US FDA. The drug regulator had conducted re-inspection of the site in May 2023 from 17-May-23 to 25-May-23 and issued Form 483 with 2 observations.
The updated classification of the site is VAI (voluntary action indicated) which indicates that Torrent will start to get approval of filed ANDAs. This will further enhance the company's prospects and foster growth in the US market with its new product offerings.
