Alcohol Content: Accounting and Monitoring
On the instruction of Alexander Khloponin Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation the Ministry of Finance developed a project of federal law “On making amendments into the Federal Law “On State Regulation of Manufacture and Circulation of Ethyl Alcohol, Alcoholic and Alcohol-Containing Products and on Limiting of Consumption (Drinking) of Alcoholic Products” and individual legislative acts of the Russian Federation” which has recently been put to public discussion.
The draft of law suggests that companies manufacturing alcohol containing medicinal drugs and (or) alcohol containing medical devices, should have equipment installed for automatic measurement, accounting, registration and transfer of information on the volumes of finished products into a Unified State Automated Information System (USAIS). Such equipment must be installed at the places of storage of drugs and medical devices containing pharmaceutical substance of ethanol of over 25% as well as at the site of supply and (or) purchase.
For that purpose it is suggested to include the corresponding amendments to the Federal Law No 61-FZ. Public discussion of the draft of law will continue to January 18, 2017.
