The Directorate of Pharmacy and Drugs, of the Ministry of Health (Minsa), communicated that it was ordered to withdraw the 70% Herva Denatured alcohol from the market and incidentally the suspension of the product, anticipating that the sanitary registration has expired since May 29, 2017.

"The product distribution company manufactured and marketed the pharmaceutical product without having the certificate of good manufacturing practices for the product and without a valid operating license," Minsa reported on Resolution No. 739 of September 17, 2020.

The Minsa specifies that in addition to the temporary closure, the company was informed that it must withdraw from the national market "all the products manufactured by them" and that it will have the responsibility of notifying the product distributors about this measure.

Similarly, it was reported that the company can proceed with a reconsideration or appeal within five business days after notification of the resolution.

For its part, the company Nacional Química, S.A. reported that before the pandemic they determined that their licenses, as well as some health records, had expired. The procedures for the renewal immediately began but "we had to suspend due to the general quarantine."

According to the company, with the opening of private construction they managed to complete the adjustments to the facilities "in full" last week. "Without an operating license in order we could not process the renewal of health records, and due to this combination of events we are in the current situation."

He stressed that they are preparing the appeal for reconsideration before the National Directorate of Pharmacy and Drugs of the Ministry of Health, and this Thursday, October 8, they formally requested the Operation License and the Certification of Good Manufacturing Practices, in order "to be able to give continuity to our operations" .
