The NDPS rules of 2015 insist on training in pain management as basic requirement for storing & dispensing “Essential Narcotic Drugs” (ENDs) by Recognised Medical Institutions (RMIs). The rules do not specify the nature of the training. It is expected that a certificate of this training by our WHO Collaborating Centre will be enough for RMI certificate.
