In 2016, effective and well cooperated work of all company’s structural subdivisions was performed.
Integration processes of the Eurasian Economic Union continued development and covered our sphere of activities as well. Work related to implementation of agreements on unified principles and rules of circulation of drug products (medical devices and equipment) within the Eurasian Economic Union to form the common market of drug products and medical devices was performed.
Our employees, as part of working groups, participated in development of documents establishing the requirements for assurance of all aspects of safety, effectiveness and quality of drug products and medical devices. All documents were developed given the contemporary international requirements in this sphere which will demand from manufacturers to comply with the highest common standards to be competitive in the Union’s market and other countries.
