PDEA launches web-based data system
The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) and the Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB) have launched a digital system to monitor regulated dangerous drugs and prevent the diversion of chemicals used in the manufacture of illegal substances. The development and implementation of the monitoring system for dangerous drugs and controlled precursors and essential chemicals (CPEC) (DDCPEC-MS) were strengthened by the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the president of the DDB, Secretary Catalino Cuy; and PDEA Director General Wilkins Villanueva. The DDCPEC-MS is an online information program designed to receive, collate, collect and collate all data and information on import, export, production, manufacture, distribution, distribution, sale, stocks, seizures and estimated needs for any hazardous product. drugs and / or CPEC from any government agency, private person or company that is engaged or engaged in the activities. “The DDCPEC-MS acts as a one-stop-shop reporting mechanism where all regulated transactions and activities of dangerous drugs and CPECs for legitimate medical and industrial use, including chemical mixtures, preparations and finished products containing them, are received from manufacturers, importers, exporters and distributors, ”Villanueva said.
The surveillance system is a reporting requirement of the United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs, the World Health Organization and other international organizations. According to the head of the PDEA, the automated submission of reports would prevent the diversion of legitimate substances for illegal purposes. “DDCPEC-MS gives us a huge boost in determining the compliance of pharmaceutical and chemical entities handling dangerous drugs and CPECs in the country,” he said.
