Pharmacies breathe freely: accreditations canceled

The Verkhovna Rada makes changes to the Law on Health Protection under number 0927. According to these changes, pharmacies are now exempted from accreditation, which previously any point had to carry out every 3 years.

Why do we need accreditation of pharmacies

The procedure itself is completely formal: almost all the people involved in the market passed it without problems. But pharmacies needed to spend time and effort collecting documentation. The package consisted of 10 mandatory items.

It included documents confirming the correct operation of the premises, compliance with fire and technical safety standards, a financial report, a list of medications and goods sold.

Pharmacy accreditation

Documents were submitted to the Commission for Accreditation of Pharmaceutical Enterprises established under the Ministry of Health. On the basis of all this, a certain level was assigned to the pharmacy - the highest, the first or the second.

The level assigned depends on how many points the pharmacy scores. The number of points is calculated on the basis of the documents submitted.For the work done, including educational, the pharmacy also receives points. If there are more than 92 out of 100 maximum possible, then the highest level is assigned, if 85-92 - the first, if 75-85 - the second.

Expert opinion

Many agree that the accreditation system has become obsolete. Thus, Yuriy Storozhuk, Deputy Director for Legal Affairs of the Medical Marketing Agency, believes that this procedure duplicates the licensing of pharmacies and is essentially unnecessary. It only increases the amount of paperwork and contributes to the red tape.

Therefore, in general, the Agency considers the cancellation of accreditations to be the right and timely decision, since the country's pharmaceutical market has great potential, which is difficult to realize due to excessive government intervention. Agency Director Andrei Chertkov emphasizes that attempts to cancel this procedure have been undertaken since 2013.

Consumer opinion

End-users of drugs, on the contrary, fear that the abolition of accreditation will entail a deterioration of pharmacies and an increase in the flow of low-quality and counterfeit drugs on their counters due to the weakening of state control. After all, it's still a business.

Reality

In fact, market participants and legislators agree on one thing - if the accreditation procedure completely duplicates the licensing procedure, then the concerns of the end users are completely groundless. After all, the licensing of pharmacies will continue to be made in full in accordance with the law "On licensing certain types of economic activity."

Reality

In accordance with it, a license to trade in medicinal products may be issued to an enterprise for an unlimited period, subject to regular monitoring by the state of the fulfillment of all licensing conditions. And in violation of their license may be revoked.

What is beneficial for the company?

The presence of a license from enterprises obliges them to fulfill various organizational requirements, including qualification ones. This provides an opportunity for the enterprise to carry out its activities and provide a quality service.

The existence of two duplicate procedures were in fact a loophole for corruption schemes. Many market participants, including the director of the Pani Pharmacy network, Anna Bigdan, believe that the abolition of accreditation will protect against this. And while the work is much easier.

What is beneficial for the company?

And the order of work of pharmacies, storage and dispensing of medicines, requirements for employees will still be regulated and monitored by the state through the licensing procedure.

Nuances of cancellation of accreditation

Also, except for the cancellation of accreditations, the Ministry of Health of Ukraine intends to change the list of goods sold through a network of pharmacies. It should include 20 positions. For comparison, there are currently only 13 of them.

The list has been expanded with the help of tools and products for skin care, hair, oral cavity, aroma oils and equipment for aromatherapy, tableware for laboratories, dietary supplements, medical nutrition for diabetics and so on.

All these activities are expected to facilitate the work of pharmacies and will help to more fully meet the needs of the population.
