Legislation: Heavier sanctions against fake drugs

February 6th 2015 - www.securingindustry.com

A new law enacted this week in Russia will allow heavier regulations on the pharmaceutical products in order to cut down the presence of counterfeit medicines both coming from and going out of the country.
The federal law number 532-FZ will criminalize individuals responsible for the sale or import of improper, substandard or unregistered medical products, as well as the counterfeit of such products, of packaging or of documents. The convicted could be condemned to a fine up to RUB 3million (US$ 45.000). This new legislation is a strong move forward in comparison with the previous ones.
