The pharmaceutical industry develops, produces, and markets drugs or pharmaceuticals for use as medications. Pharmaceutical companies may deal in generic or brand medications and medical devices. They are subject to a variety of laws and regulations that govern the patenting, testing, safety, efficacy and marketing of drugs. The guidelines developed by WHO are prepared through a vast global consultative process involving WHO Member States, national authorities and international agencies; in consultation with the WHO Expert Advisory Panel on the International Pharmacopoeia and Pharmaceutical Preparations, with specialists from industry, national institutions, nongovernmental organizations, etc. The draft guidelines are evaluated during the meetings of the WHO Expert Committee on Specifications for Pharmaceutical Preparations and, if found suitable, adopted as international standards.
