11 - 08/97 - Drugs - Expiry Dates - Brazil
Further to Bulletin 9. We are also seeing in this area the expiry dates of drugs carried on board (in the hospital) being checked closely. If these are found to be out of date fines are made against the ship. This is happening on a regular basis with ships arriving from the West Africa Coast being targetted the most.
