India's largest drugmaker Sun Pharma gets warning letter from FDA  India’s largest drug maker Sun Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd on Tuesday said the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has decided to lift an import alert on its manufacturing plant at Mohali in Punjab.
The US FDA had imposed the import alert in 2013 for violation of good manufacturing practices.
“This proposed action (by US FDA) will clear the path for Sun Pharma to supply approved products from the Mohali facility to the US market, subject to normal US FDA regulatory requirements. It illustrates Sun Pharma’s commitment to work closely with the US FDA and strive for 100% cGMP (current good manufacturing practices) compliance at its manufacturing facilities, “ the company said in a stock exchange filing.
The Mohali plant came into the Sun Pharma fold when it acquired Ranbaxy Laboratories Ltd in 2015.
Shares of Sun Pharma jumped at the announcement, closing 3.4% higher at Rs707 on the BSE, while benchmark Sensex index closed up 1.6% at 29421.82 points.
The US drug regulator will also remove the facility from the status of Official Action Indicated (OAI), Sun Pharma said.
