Tema Sept. 27, GNA – The Food and Drugs
Authority (FDA), has established a mini laboratory at the Tema Fishing Harbour
to ensure increased protection of public health and safety, with regards to
products it regulates.

During a visit to the newly established
laboratory, which is yet to commence full operations, the Governing Board of
the FDA commended the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Mrs Delese Darko, for the
initiative and urged the maximum use of the facility.

To facilitate trade at the Tema Port by fast
tracking clearing of products and to bridge the gap in the regular quality
testing, the Lab will be using quick test methods.

The laboratory, which will be manned initially
by five competent technical staff, will randomly be testing sampled regulated
products to ascertain their quality and safety before being allowed into the
market.

Products of suspicious nature would also be
tested at the said facility to ensure their quality and safety.

For effective running of the facility, a state
of the art laboratory equipment has been installed to ensure quality and safe
products onto the market.

Dr Samuel Ohene, the Chairman of the Governing
Board assured of their support in ensuring an effective running of the
facility.

Mrs Darko, the CEO of the FDA indicated her
readiness to ensure that all needed resources, including equipment and human
would be made available to ensure the success of the facility.
