According to Head of Roszdravnadzor, Mikhail Murashko, as of now, there are 12 modern laboratory facilities operating in all Russian Federal districts that are capable to carry out quality testing of medicinal drugs using pharmacopoeial methods of any complexity level.
Roszdravnadzor laboratory facilities in Rostov-on-Don, Krasnoyarsk, Khabarovsk and Yekaterinburg have already got international accreditation of ANAB; in March 2017, accreditation procedures are scheduled for Kazan and Kursk laboratory facilities.
Therefore, manufacturers of pharmaceuticals and other chemical products can send their products to Roszdravnadzor testing laboratories accredited by ANAB, thus, confirming their compliance with ISO/IEC 17025:2005 global standard, and consequently get quality certificates recognized by the international community in order to market their produce overseas.
Besides, in October 2016, Roszdravnadzor FSBI “All-Russian Science, Research and Testing Institute of Medical Equipment” became a partner of IMQ (Italy) representative office in Russian and NIS countries.
“International accreditation of Roszdravnadzor laboratories confirms their compliance with the requirements of international standards and high level of equipment in existing facilities that should be employed to bring national innovative medicinal produce to the global market,” emphasized Mikhail Murashko.
