He mentioned that 70% of the Detergent and Hygiene Industry capacity is located in Alborz province,” and in order to supply the required strategic products in detergent industry, appropriate and close cooperation between the Ministry of Industry Mines Trade and the Ministry of Health and Medical Education and the Food and Drug administration was formed and due to this serious situation and social responsibility, in addition to this cooperation, industry activists showed up by changing production lines to supply the needed products.” He added
“Therefore, the necessary licenses for production of the mentioned products in Pakrokh company and other province’s companies have been issued by the Food and Drug administration in Alborz province. “ according to his saying
Pakrokh CEO noting that government agencies have accelerated the licensing process for the production of required disinfectant gels and disinfectant materials, said: in this regard, mining and trade and the food and drug organizations provided close monitoring of the manufacturers of these items, For example, constantly controlling the amount of alcohol entering the factory and the amount of alcohol in the product is on the agenda of these organizations, and continuous inspection and repeated testing of products is done.

In another part of his speech, the former member of the board of directors of the Detergent Industries Association emphasized that the supervision in this field is multidimensional, and said: But unfortunately, the complex and one-sided bureaucracy of the Food and Drug Administration in one province has caused problems for many manufacturers of detergent industries who, with a sense of social responsibility, changed the use of production lines to supply the products needed by the country in these dangerous situation.
Explaining this, Moghaddasi continued: “For example, in Fars province, Rasa University of Medical Sciences is testing products in laboratories without standard protocols, and it is surprising that regardless of the standard protocols and the results of approved laboratories, They started to publish news about the results of the tests.

One laboratory stated that the percentage of alcohol was 60 and the other laboratory stated that the percentage of alcohol was 89, but the Food and Drug Administration in this province did not consider these different results.” The results were announced and mediatized without testing in a laboratory with a standard protocol, endangerment of the material and spiritual capital of brands that have been present in the Iranian market for more than five decades is the result of current situation.
