(CP) The federal government's quality assess- ment of drugs tonly called "one of he best of its type in Uie vorld" and Health Minister Marc Lalonde says he's prc- oared "to take whatever action s necessary to ensure that ichievement of its goals is not hwarted." In a 17-page statement on drug quality and the quad pro- grain, released Tuesday, the minister said the program was ilanned to reduce drug costs. And he indicated that Uie gov- ernment, contrary to some re- cent criticisms, is prepared to )ut some muscle into making it possible for provincial govcrn- menis and other bulk purcha- sers to get savings. 'A key element in reducing the price of drugs was the need drug-testing program com- lo demonstrate to the health professions and bulk purchasers that drug brands of comparable quality but lower prices are he said. The pro- gram was set up to show this, starting with the 200 most-com- monly-prescribed prescription drugs. However, because there now _j a "lack of co-operation" by large multi-national pharmaceu- tical companies to have their facilities evaluated voluntarily, the government "is considering other means" to ensure that the programs of quality drugs at lower costs are met, the minis- ter said. The statement was issued be- cause of criticisms by Canadian newspapers, it said.

As well, it has received the strong support of provincia" governments and its results are being used by Tour provinces, he said. Mr. Lalonde then discussed seven "issues" that had been raised concerning the program and gave the department's views on these. Statements that lifc-and-deat] drugs are available with only minimal testing were "un he said. However, the primary respon sibility for drug quality rests with the manufacturers and not the government, he said. DONT SHRINK "Conscientious manufacturers do not, of course, shrink from accepting this responsibility, and sland behind the quality of their products."

On the "issue" of whether a patient could die if the effects of one drug were not identical to another for whicli it was substi- tuted, Mr. Lalonde said that there are instances where ex- actly identical effects were im- portant, but that these were "less frequent than might be expected." Such drugs were always un- der a physicians direction and he was able to determine whether such effect1; might oc- cur. But such exceptions did not rule out the fact that most drugs could -be switched, with considerable savings, he said. E. W. Wellbaum of Atyeska Pipeline Service Co., which is seeking to build a 780-mile pipe- line to carry oil from Alaska's North Slope to the Alaskan port of Valdez, outlined prevention measures which he said would minimize the threat of spillage from the line. Although he said chances of major leaks from the pipeline would be slim, "Alyeska must be prepared to handle an oil spill at any point on the system during its operating life." The future of the proposed pipeline, opposed by con- servationists, is tied up in the courts. The conference, which is being attended by scientists, businessmen and government representatives, is sponsored by the EPA, the American Petro- leum Institute, and the U.S. Coast Guard.
