Public Consultation on the Proposed Health Products Bill
The Health Sciences Authority (HSA), a statutory board of the Ministry of Health, plans to table a Bill in Parliament to enact the proposed Health Products Act. The proposed Act will serve to amalgamate the existing controls for regulating medicines, which currently reside in various pieces of legislation, into one omnibus Act. The proposed Act will also provide more flexibility for the application of different aspects of control for different types of health products through the use of type-specific subsidiary legislation. It is envisaged that the proposed Act will eventually become the principal legislative vehicle for regulating all types of health products for human use, including medical devices, pharmaceuticals, traditional medicines and health supplements.
HSA is seeking the views and feedback from the public and stakeholders from the health products industry as well as healthcare professionals on the proposed Health Products Bill.
All feedback should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by 31 July 2005.
