Roszdravnadzor: Test Purchase
By mid year a decree granting rights to Roszdravnadzor for control purchase of drugs is to become effective. It is related to entry into effect of Clause 16.1 of Federal Law of 26.12.2008 No 294 FZ On Protection of Legal Entities and Individual Entrepreneurs for the State Control (Surveillance) and Municipal Control from January 1, 2017. As follows from the document, the control purchase is only acceptable at cases established by the corresponding federal laws. Roszdravnadzor may be granted the right for the purchase in June, 2017. It follows from the notification “On Making Amendments into Some Legislative Acts of the Russian Federation with Regard to Authorization of the Body Responsible for Control and Surveillance in the Field of Healthcare to Perform Control Purchase”, published by the Ministry of Healthcare of the Russian Federation at the Federal Web-Portal of Projects of Normative and Legal Acts.
This right will give Roszdravnadzor an opportunity to identify and prevent violations in the field of retail sales of drugs in a timely manner.
