Frequently Asked Question

15. What does the registration process of complementary medicine entail?

The Authority assesses the Safety, Quality and Efficacy of all medicines destined for public use in Zimbabwe. The same applies to complementary medicines. Evaluators assess the quality of documentation, analysts test the samples submitted and inspectors deal with GMP issues. A committee of experts overlooks the procedure to ensure consistency, transparency and guidance. Applicants are informed of the status of their products periodically. Products that are successful are granted market authorization whilst those that have not satisfied the Authorities requirement are refused authorization.
