In recent years, IDA has seen an increasing requirement for the registration of imported medicines. Sometimes this is driven by the destination country, when the National Drug Regulating Authority (NDRA) establishes specific registration requirements for pharmaceutical products and their packaging. Donor organisations such as the Global Fund also emphasise registration as a way to ensure product quality and create a standardised national formulary.

IDA has a dedicated team of regulatory affairs professionals based in Mumbai. Their familiarity with regulatory systems and requirements allows them to prepare country-specific dossiers for IDA products. Once the registration process is underway, they monitor progress until the product receives marketing authorisation from the destination country. The team also provides support for post-marketing changes and administrative issues related to registration.
