The National Medicines Regulatory Authority (NMRA) has approved four more companies to import Rapid Antigen test kits used in identifying people of reactive Covid statuses.

13 companies were nominated for the purpose and only four of them were selected as qualified.

Six applications out of the rest of the nine companies have been rejected, while the remaining three have been referred to further review. Accordingly, a future decision will be made on the remaining three companies under review upon findings, said Dr. Hasitha Wijewanna, Chairman of the NMRA.
