API prequalification ensures that the API manufactured is of good quality and in accordance with the WHO stated Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). This prequalification consists of two components, assessment of the sites of manufacturing to validate its compliance with WHO GMP requirements and assessment of API master file (APIMF) for its conformity with the standards and norms stated by WHO. The prequalification of API gives insights about the standard manufacturing processes and quality control issues. Henceforth, for each prequalified API, its relevant APIMF number is allotted and is included in the WHO’s prequalified APIs list.
