Legislation: Towards easing regulation of online pharmacies

November 24th 2014 - www.richardferrand.fr (PDF in french)

In order to develop the French market of online sales of non-prescription medicines, the Member of Parliament of the Social Party Richard Ferrand, presented the government a report aiming to ease the regulation governing the accessibility of this market. After two years, only 202 pharmacies have launched their websites, to which the report suggests to “remove the mandatory affiliation of the distant selling to a physical pharmacy”, which is already allowed in the United Kingdom.
