Nadimul Haque speaks on the issue of the liability of compensation against defective drugs

FULL TRANSCRIPT

I address the demand for making firms liable to pay compensation for defective drugs and devices.

The moment any product is found to be defective and substandard, Sir, it must be withdrawn from the market promptly and any damages caused has to be compensated to the consumer.

Sir making these changes in the law will lead to more transparency and better checks in patient safety. I would therefore urge the Government to take proactive steps in this regard.

Thank you.
