The Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation (CDSCO) on April 15, 2020, has decided that the applications for import registration may be submitted by notarized or apostilled documents. CDSCO had received representations from various stakeholders about difficulties faced while submission of notary, apostilled and embassy attestation of regulatory documents due to COVID-19 pandemic.

Thus, considering the present situation of lockdown due to COVID-19 pandemic, it has been decided that the applicant may submit applications for import registration under the Drug and Cosmetics Act, 1940 and Rules, along with self attested documents and an undertaking stating that they will submit the notarized or apostilled documents obtaining the same from the concerned authority after the current situation gets normalized.

Those applications when received will be processed and import registration will be issued, provided that the firm shall submit the notarized documents for obtaining the same.
