Notification on recent trends in monitoring on compliance with legislation in the promotion of medicines, medical products and dietary supplements

Ladies and Gentlemen!

We inform you about the latest trends on monitoring compliance with legislation in the field of promotion of medicines, medical products and dietary supplements.

In particular, on September 14, 2017, the Dnipro Municipal Council issued a Decree "On Limits Set for Medical Professionals in the realization of their Professional Activities" No. 473 (hereinafter - Order No. 473).

In addition to duplication of already existing legislative restrictions on the professional activities of medical workers, the order No. 473 additionally explicitly prohibit the visits of medical representatives of pharmaceutical companies to the medical institutions, if such a visit takes place during the doctor’s working day. It’s noted, that for representatives of pharmaceutical companies the possible form of providing information about medicinal products in the city's medical institutions is their participation in clinical conferences and interrupted courses.

Our firm has developed a series of measures aimed at protecting pharmaceutical manufacturers for the period of implementation of Order No. 473.
