Regulation of medical products circulation in accordance with national legislation clarified

The Eurasian Economic Commission's Council has amended the rules for registering medical devices enabling the EAEU States to regulate, in certain cases, the circulation of medical products in accordance with national legislation.

As Viktor Nazarenko, EEC Minister in charge of Technical Regulation, has noted, the amendments will enable ensuring the availability of medical products in the EAEU countries' markets through the use of flexible emergency response mechanisms at the national level.

The amendment also envisages the exclusion of transitional provisions when registering medical products according to the EAEU rules which have lost their relevance.
