Smart phone app launched for consumers to check legality of food and drug products


BANGKOK – The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is due to launch its latest version of the ‘Oryor Smart Application,’ which allows consumers to check whether certain dietary supplements and drugs are FDA approved. 

FDA Deputy Secretary-General Paisarn Dunkum said the first version of the application was introduced in 2013 for both iOS and Android phone users and has since been downloaded more than 200,000 times. As a result, the FDA was recognized with an award from the Thai Public Relations Association in 2014.

The application’s updated version contains nine menus, which include FDA updates, product registration numbers, and health information tips, to name a few. Oryor Smart Application is available for free for iOS and Android devices.
