Our Bureau

NEW DELHI, Nov. 28

THE Rs 276-crore J.B. Chemicals & Pharmaceuticals Ltd (JBCPL), one of the domestic mid-cap pharmaceutical companies and the flagship of the Unique Group, has obtained the `Certificate of Suitability to European Pharmacopoeia Monograph' or `EP4' from the European Union (EU) for its active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) - Metronidazole and Diclofenac Sodium.

Metronidazole is currently being exported to the US, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Iran and sales during 2001-02 amounted to about Rs 7 crore. The company's Metronidazole manufacturing plant at Ankleshwar (Gujarat) already has US FDA and TGA Australia approval.

Exports of Diclofenac Sodium, on the other hand, constituted about 39 per cent of the drug's sales of Rs 18 crore and seven per cent of JBCPL's total sales amounting to Rs 276 crore during the same year.

JBCPL currently exports Diclofenac Sodium to Germany, Mexico, Italy and Iran.
