In a partial easing of Wockhardts regulatory hiccups, the company on Wednesday said the UK health regulator has allowed its Kadaiya facility to manufacture and supply most of the products approved to be produced at the unit.

The United Kingdom Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency had pulled the good manufacturing practices certificate of the companys unit based in Nani Daman, after an inspection conducted in September allegedly showed poor manufacturing standards. The Kadaiya facility was Wockhardts third production unit to come under overseas regulators scrutiny this year. FE
