In a regulatory filing, the company said the FDA has issued import alert on the company's formulations manufacturing units, situated at SEZ Indore (Pithampur) and Piparia (Silvassa).
"The company is fully committed in resolving this issue at the earliest," it added.
The company has voluntarily decided to suspend API shipments from Ratlam manufacturing unit for the US market till the FDA inspection observations issue is resolved.
The filing said since its units at Indore and Piparia use the APIs from the Ratlam manufacturing unit for formulations manufactured at these units for the US market, the voluntary stoppage of API shipments from the Rallam unit will also have impact on its formulations exports.
