Mandate of the Directorate

The Inspectorate Services Directorate ensures that all medicines manufactured locally and imported into the country are of good quality and are properly handled. The directorate ensures that drugs are inspected at all major ports of entry to minimize entry of sub-standard and counterfeit drugs into Uganda. Inspection and licensing of all pharmaceutical handling facilities has also been adequately catered for.

Activities have been developed to rid the country of illegal operators of drug outlets and substandard and counterfeit drugs through intensifying support supervision and post marketing surveillance.
