Topic Background:

More than ever, the world has become one integrated market for conducting global clinical research and for expanding the market for pharmaceuticals, biologics, medical devices and combination products. The time and expense of bringing new products to market continue to challenge budgets and existing balance sheets. While it is necessary to continue to have a robust pipeline of new patented products, global producers have been evaluating how best to begin participating in the emerging markets of Russia. Manufacturers are looking to tap into the large population areas of the world and bring innovative products to these patient populations. Taking products which already have existing country licenses and expanding these licenses into nations like Russia is proving to be an effective strategy for those who have begun.

Russia has been improving the sophistication of their regulatory agency governing the food and life science products industry in recent years. This has included amending GMP, GLP, GCP, GSP and other regulations allowing their country policies to further align more with international standards of practice. This better alignment will assist the growth in Russia for new and already licensed elsewhere products. For manufacturers and distributors of life science products in Russia, it is important to pay close attention to the pace at which their healthcare agencies implement these changes. Manufacturers and distributors must in turn add this knowledge and adjust their standard operating procedures when necessary to ensure compliance with the evolving regimes.
