Reallocation of Responsibilities
A draft of law on centralized public control system in the field of healthcare has been approved by deputies of the State Duma in the first reading.
The new document specifies the authority of Roszdravnadzor for license control of licensees performing medical and pharmaceutical activity. These powers will thus be withdrawn from regional public authorities.
According to explanatory note, such reauthorization will help create a centralized system of public control over quality of performance of medical and pharmaceutical enterprises, thus improving control and supervision and relieving the control load on economic entities.
