The Pharmacy and Drug Control Department at the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) proposes the drug policy in the State. The Department is responsible for the registration and classification of pharmaceutical products in addition to the issuance of the required instructions.

Offline Instructions

  • The MoPH does not analyze the product, nor does it guarantee the quality, efficacy or safety of the product.
