The bill of the drugs manufactures in pharmacies passed the first reading


The State Duma of the Russian Federation adopted in the first reading a bill that allows pharmacy organizations, veterinary pharmacies and individual entrepreneurs with a license for pharmaceutical activities to use drugs in the production of drugs instead of pharmaceutical stations, Duma TV reports.

In addition, the document removes the ban of the manufacture of drugs registered in Russia, which was valid in relation to such organizations and individual entrepreneurs.

“This norm limited the manufacture of medicines in pharmacy organizations, which led to a significant decrease in the nomenclature and number of dosage forms produced and the mass closure of production pharmacies in all regions of the Russian Federation,” the explanatory note to the bill says.
