The US Food and Drug Administration has classified Aurobindo Pharma's three facilities under Official Action Indicated (OAI).

According to the FDA's definitions, Official Action Indicated means "objectionable conditions were found and regulatory and/or administrative sanctions by FDA are indicated" during inspections. OAI means an FDA inspection revealed significant objectionable conditions or practices and action must be taken to address the issues.

"The Company has already submitted its initial response to USFDA. The Company is sending further updates on the committed corrective actions," the drug maker said.
