Pharmaceutical Licensing Regulations Amended

On April 10, 2019, the Uzbek President signed a decree which intends to accelerate the development of the pharmaceutical industry in Uzbekistan in 2019–2021. The decree entered into force on August 17, 2019.

According to amendments introduced by the decree, licenses for the production of pharmaceuticals are no longer granted by the Ministry of Health, but by the Agency for the Development of the Pharmaceutical Industry established under the same ministry.

The decree has also introduced a temporary measure intended to give priority to local manufacturers in the public procurement of pharmaceuticals. Namely, from July 1, 2019 until December 31, 2020, when a state body issues a pharmaceutical tender, if there are two or more local manufacturers of pharmaceutical products of the same international nonproprietary name (INN), all tender applications filed by foreign manufacturers of products of the same INN will be refused. Further developments after December 31, 2020 will depend on the results of this temporary measure.
