The amendments to the decree of the RF Government No. 967 “On peculiarities of procurement of medical devices single-use (use) of PVC plastics for state and municipal needs”, is not able to resolve the difficulties of its implementation. To such conclusion experts IMEDA.
We will remind, the Ministry has prepared amendments to the rules for selection of implementing organizations in 2017 – 2024 integrated projects for the expansion and (or) the localization of production of medical devices for single use of polyvinyl chloride plastics (PVC plastics), in carrying out specific procurement of such products for state and municipal needs approved by decision of the RF Government of 14 August 2017, No. 967. The changes relate to the adoption issues and the consideration of the implementation of a comprehensive project submitted by Russian organizations on an ongoing basis, not just once.
“The published draft amendments to decree No. 967 due to the need to bring this document into compliance with the Supreme Court”s decision, according to which he was recognized invalid in the part providing for the establishment until September 11, 2017 period for acceptance and the consideration received from organizations statements with documentary evidence of the criteria provided in this document. We believe this confirms the fact that the initial inconsistency of the decision with the requirements of the current legislation”, – said the Executive Director of the Association IMEDA Sergey Vanin.
In conversation with “FV”, the expert noted – in General, the mechanism to establish a single supplier or several suppliers, i.e., not producers of medical devices, and, in fact, “mega-distributors” originally looked very bulky and traderelated that questioned the success of its implementation.
“In our understanding, it would be more appropriate to cancel this decision and to make appropriate changes to decree №102” – concluded Sergey Vanin.
