PURIFIED water producers in Mandalay will be given business licenses after receiving a permit from Food and Drug Administration Department (FDA), according to Mandalay City Development Committee (MCDC).
The MCDC’s announcement came after suspending licenses of 10 purified water businesses in Mandalay recently.
The businesses will be allowed to resume operating after they are given the green light by FDA for their operations, said Dr Thwin Kyaw Kyaw, one of the committee members.
As a matter of prioritising public health, business licenses released before the FDA permits previously to avoid delays in starting their businesses will be awarded after completing the steps to be taken for the FDA permits, added the committee member.
There might be delays in checking their products as the testing process is being carried out nationwide, said an official, adding that works are underway in cooperation with the MCDC to complete the process as soon as possible.
