Center of development of advanced technologies will invest over 10 billion virtually any in the marking and traceability of drugs. Pharmaceutical manufacturers would not incur additional costs for the purchase of equipment for cryptographic protection code CRPT will provide business registrars of the issue code for free.
“The unified national system of digital marking will be implemented in the format of public-private partnerships. This will reduce the time of its implementation and reduce the cost of the state. Only in the labeling of pharmaceutical market, we plan to invest over 10 billion virtually any,” — said the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the company Michael Dubin.
In addition, the company is willing on a Pro Bono basis to equip all health institutions in the country registrars disposal of medicines.The use of cryptography is provided by government approved in April this year, the models of functioning of the uniform marking system. CRPC have already conducted several successful tests on the application to the packaging of medicines is protected code in conjunction with major pharmaceutical companies “Pharmstandard”, “R-Pharm”, “Biocidal” and others. The use of cryptography will not increase the timing of introduction of the labeling.
Concerns of the pharmaceutical industry about the implementation of encryption previously said Federal officials at the parliamentary hearings held in the state Duma on 2 July. “Cryptography is introduced in order to avoid the possibility of duplicate code,” — said Deputy Minister of industry and trade Viktor Evtukhov. The head of Roszdravnadzor Mikhail Murashko said that only cryptography will allow for testing of medicines offline. And this is a critical requirement for our country, where in remote areas the Internet connection is unstable or absent.
“The government has decided on the distribution, replication labelling to other product groups, not only for medicines and fur products. The operator of the information system on drugs and the rest of the commodity groups will be the commercial operator, not the Federal authorities. This is done in order to remove excess burden on the budget”, — said the Deputy head of the FTS of Russia Andrey Baturkin.
Thus, according to him, the market will change nothing, will those formats work, and coming to the system commercial operator will be seamless. “All the rules will be set by the government. The regulation will remain in state hands. The Above operator is established by the state supervision,” he continued, adding that the services of the private operator will enable businesses to reduce costs derived from the system useful to analysts.
The Chairman of the Duma Committee on financial markets Anatoly Aksakov believes that the introduction of encryption of medications needed to restore order in the pharmaceutical market. The price of drugs innovation should not be significantly affected, said Aksakov.
