Institution and Management


Drug and food control covers broad aspects ranging from standard setting instruments and products, assessment of listed products, sample inspection and products testing in the market, up to law enforcement to those violating the rules. Drug and Food Control is a systematic, continuous, and comprehensive effort to control the production and distribution of drugs and foods according to security requirements, benefits and quality.

With increasingly extensive and complex task of NADFC, public expectations of getting protection has also continued to increase, while the institutional, system, structure, behavior/work ethics of NADFC  are still very limited. This encourages NADFC to continuously improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the whole programs, including changing the mind set of human resources from being bureaucratic to be more professional.

Therefore, it is necessary to have reforms in work system, to increase the working capacity of NADFC. In addition, adequate resources are required, while continuing to carry out a change of mindset, structuring the management of human resources and labor arrangement in NADFC. Until now, all the monitoring function can be performed by NADFC, although it sometimes faces obstacles. However, to improve the institutional capacity of NADFC, it needs to revitalize its role and function in order to produce the performance achievement of drug and food control that meets the demands in the field.

In order to improve its management, at the beginning of 2012 there will be the certification of ISO 9001: in 2008 for Quality Management System (QMS) of NADFC. Thus, NADFC will have a unified and integral system of control down to regional levels. Related to this, consolidation and synchronization of Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) and Work Instructions (IK) are still on progress.
