Preparation of documentation and support of expertise of the CCI of Russia on determining the country of origin

On February 5, 2015 the Government Decision No. 102 "On the establishment of limitations on admission of certain types of medical devices originating from foreign States for the purposes of procurement for state and municipal needs" entered into force .

According to the text applications for medical devices supply of all foreign countries, except Armenia, Belarus and Kazakhstan, will be rejected if at least two bids are submitted from Russian, Armenian, Belarusian and Kazakh manufacturers. List of medical products in respect of which restrictions are imposed, covering the range of medical clothing to the x-ray diagnostic complexes, is attached to the Decision.

The Decision opens the Russian manufacturers and foreign companies, basing their production in Russia, new opportunities for sales.
