Not Yet Decided about Penalties
A draft of law “On making amendments into the RF Administrative Offence Code regarding amendment of administrative responsibility in the field of healthcare” is currently approved in the first reading, while it had to be actually effective.
That document significantly extended the list of offenses provided for in a special article of Administrative Offence Code. In particular, it introduces new types of penalties for violating the rules of providing medical aid and circulation of medicinal drugs. For example, for failure to comply with limitations imposed by the legislation on healthcare professionals, for example, gifts that the healthcare professionals have a right to accept, and pharmaceutical manufacturers have a right to give.
The document provisions responsibility for excessive prices for VED list: a penalty of up to 500 thousand rubles (suspension of operations for 90 days). For violations related to wholesale margin, penalties may reach 1000 thos. rubles (activities may be suspended for up to 90 days).
The draft of law assumes that all new violations will be monitored by Roszdravnadzor, which will lay a penalty. But in cases of particularly serious violation of licensing requirements and increase of retail and wholesale margins to prices for VED, the penalty is imposed in the court.
