UK breaks ground on $65 million expansion of business college

The project is part of UKs overall capital improvement plan , which was approved earlier this year by the Kentucky General Assembly and signed by Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear. No state tax dollars will be used in any of the UK construction projects, which also include a new science building and improvements to UKs football facilities and Commonwealth Stadium. The Gatton College expansion and renovation calls for an increase in space for educational programs, as well as technology enhancements to classrooms and laboratories. Beshear joined UK president Eli Capilouto and Gatton College Dean David Blackwell at todays groundbreaking, according to a news release. The project is slated for completion by spring 2016. Highlights include: Expanding the footprint of the college by 40 percent to 210,000 square feet; Adding a 500-seat auditorium designed for special events and large lectures; Creating 20 new classrooms and 40 collaborative study or breakout rooms; Building a special events hall with audio-visual components to accommodate dinners and lectures seating between 75 and 200 people.

UK drug regulator withdraws quality certificate to Wockhardt’s Aurangabad plant

Also Read FDA letter may derail turnaround Mumbai: Drug maker Wockhardt Ltd on Saturday said the UK drug regulator has withdrawn its quality certification to the pharma companys Chikalthana factory in Aurangabad. Wockhardt can, however, continue exporting some critical drugs to the UK as the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) will issue a restricted good manufacturing practice (GMP) certificate to the plant to avoid a shortage of medically essential products supplied by Wockhardt. The restricted GMP certificate will be conditioned to permit continued manufacturing and quality-control testing of critical products in situations where it has been agreed by the national competent authority or EMA (as appropriate) that there is no feasible alternative in the market concerned. The scope of the statement of non-compliance is, therefore, limited to medicinal products considered non-critical to public health, Wockhardt said in a statement to the stock exchanges. Accordingly, Wockhardts Chikalthana factory will be able to manufacture and supply medicinal products critical to public health, the company said, adding that the impact on the existing business will be known once the company receives further communication from the MHRA. Wockhardt, which is facing a US import ban on its Waluj injectables plant in Aurangabad, also received negative observations from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on the Chikhalthana factory in August. Mint had reported in a 14 August report that FDA, after visiting the Chikalthana facility in July, listed observations including concerns about quality control. The FDA carried out the inspection on 22-31 July jointly with the UK drug regulator. The Chikalthana plant, which makes some of Wockhardts high-value brands for the US market, had total sales of $283 million (around Rs.1,700 crore) in fiscal 2013. The plant contributes around 12 million from the UK and European Union markets to Wockhardts consolidated annual revenue. The MHRA had also raised observations after inspecting the Waluj facility, and on 10 July initiated a precautionary recall of 16 products for the UK market.
