The LMHRA was established based on provisions of the National Drug Policy for the establishment of a Medicines Regulatory Authority to enact and update medicines regulations to regulate the Pharmaceutical Sector, and establishment of a national quality control laboratory under the Authority. The Authority was officially established on 29 September 2010.

Our role is to protect and enhance public and animal health. We do this by assessing the safety, quality and effectiveness of medicines and health products on behalf of the public through our Quality Control Laboratory to ensure the benefits they provide outweigh any potential risks.
