APPLYING FOR UPCOS IDs
To have free UPCOS IDs for their medical, pharmaceutical, chemical, biomedical and biotechnological products and have them “UPCOS-Registered” and “WAMS-Approved”, manufacturers must formally make their requests applying separately for their each product. There are six stages of the process whose progression usually takes THREE WORKING DAYS.
There are no fees or charges for UPCOS IDs.
Rejected Applications: Halted at any stage of the UPCOS ID Registration process, a rejected product may be re-submitted with a renewed application after a period of three months. If it gets rejected again, a third (final) submission may be made only after a year. A product rejected three consecutive times gets in the “UPCOS ID Hold List” indefinitely.
