Russian authorities temporarily transferred to the marking system of medicine in the notification mode, so that people on the background of increased demand for drugs could buy them without delay.
According to the head of Minpromtorg Denis Manturov, still remain problems including insufficient technical readiness of distributors and pharmacy organizations to work with marked drugs.
While wholesale and retail have addressed these issues, my colleagues from other departments, taking into account the peak of high demand, decided to temporarily transfer the marking system of medicine in the notification mode of operation in the pharmacy and distribution segments, — quotes TASS the head of Department.
In his opinion, it allows you to release the goods immediately, without waiting for the answer marking system.
