3.3 Procurement agencies
Procurement agencies should require sufficient information on the composition, the process of manufacture, stability, and provisions for appropriate labelling to be included in the drug procurement documents. Where possible, this information should be checked against data provided for registration purposes. In cases where the date of manufacture is not indicated on the label of a product, this information should be given in the accompanying documentation. In addition, the procurement agencies should inform potential suppliers of any extreme environmental conditions that might prevail.
