From now on, Ukraine has a new law – poor pharmacists

From today the Law "On Amending Certain Legislative Acts of Ukraine regarding toughening responsibility for fraud or trafficking of counterfeit medicines" (№ 10561) comes into effect. The Act is published in the August 3 issue of the newspaper “Uriadovy Kurier” ("Governmental courier"), UBR informs.

This law, we remind, toughens responsibility for the violation of rules and limitations for medical and pharmaceutical workers carrying out their professional activities.

In addition, the state Criminal Code provides imprisonment for a deliberate fabrication, transportation and storage of counterfeit medicines.

At the same time, people who "grass" the above mentioned "comrades" are exempt from criminal liability.

The new version of Article 321-2 of the Criminal Code provides strict liability for persons who violate the established order of preclinical studies and clinical trials of drugs, as well as those who let their results be falsified.
