Drug Labeling Introduced

From July 1, 2020, all pharmaceutical products for medical use in Russia will have to be labelled in accordance with the federal information system for monitoring the circulation of pharmaceutical products. In order to meet the requirements, each pharmaceutical product will have a unique identifier on its packaging, a Data Matrix code, containing information such as the product’s serial number, expiration date, consignment number and manufacturer’s name, thus enabling the monitoring of each product’s circulation from the manufacturer to the end user.

The drug monitoring system was introduced by the Federal Law No. 425-FZ of December 28, 2017, which brought changes to the Federal Law ‘On Circulation of Medicines’. It was first intended to enter into force on January 1, 2020, but the entry into force was postponed until July 1, 2020 by further amendments to the Federal Law ‘On Circulation of Medicines’ introduced on December 27, 2019.
