Aims and Objectives

Starting January 2016, common regulations set by the Eurasian Economic Commission (ECC) for the system for medical devices came into force (the Eurasian Economic Medical Device Registration Rules/ERR).

This new regulatory framework intended to harmonize the requirements between countries like Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia and establish a common market. The current transition period ends 2021.

Our course gives you a detailed overview of the current legal framework and the medical device approval in Russia and the member states of the EAEU as customs union.

An essential part will be to explain to you how you can use regulatory efforts, which you can currently use for compliance according to the European Medical Device Regulation, also for product approvals in Russia and EAEU states. In addition, our team of speakers will show you how, as a globally active medical device company, you can use synergy effects from other markets to successfully complete an Eurasian registration.

Russian Healthcare

Russian Healthcare System

In recent years, Russia’s economic instability has increased due to rapidly falling oil prices, causing a spike in poverty and decreasing investments in infrastructure, such as healthcare. Though the Russian economy began its recovery in 2017 with a GDP increase of 1.5 percent, this is not significant enough to improve Russian quality of life or provide more funding for healthcare, which has led to a Russian healthcare crisis.
