Strike in Puerto Seco Federal District primarily affects the distribution of raw materials for medicine production

The federal civil servants' strike is affecting the operation of the Dry Port of the Federal District, the customs office located in Santa Maria, a satellite city 39 kilometers from Brasilia. According to Edward Líbaino Martins, general manager of the Dry Port of DF, 80% of the load is stopped are composed of raw materials to manufacture medicines, perishable goods, valued at $ 15 million (U.S. $ 30 million) . They also retained implants, prostheses and medical devices, including pacemakers and stents used in cardiac surgery.

With the services of the National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA), Ministry of Agriculture and Internal Revenue Service paralyzed, the goods arrive at the site are not being released for lack of supervision. The products are stuck in the courtyard of the unit for seven days, when normally it would be that the whole process occurred in a period of 24 to 48 hours.

According to general manager of the dry port, the raw materials were imported from India and Germany by the pharmaceutical industry of Minas Gerais, Sao Paulo and the Federal District itself. He explains that it is common to companies in other states to import using the DF as a gateway, because of the central geographical location of Brasilia.

The staff of ANVISA in crowded Dry Port of DF are off work for about 15 days. The agricultural tax of the Ministry of Agriculture who work on-site activities stopped earlier this week.

Currently, the IRS is the only one to fulfill their duties in the area, but the inspectors are in standard operation. Out of 10 commodities, they only allow three, says Martins.

In his view, the situation of raw materials for drugs is the most worrisome. Although they are stored in a cool environment, the substances have expiration dates. Usually they take about 45 days to reach Brazil. Here, the release process has to be very dynamic or the drugs reach the end consumer with a very short shelf life, says.

He points out that in the case of other products stranded, the damage is only financial - companies have to pay a fee for extra time of storage.
