Medicine prices are regulated only when they are one of the approximately 1500 drugs on the National List of Essential Drugs (NLED).
Under the control of the Ministry of Commerce, drugs on the NLED are subject to a median price policy. Private hospitals and drug stores are free to set their own prices for the drugs they sell, but the price must not exceed the sticker price – the maximum price set by the distributor.

The Anatomical Therapeutic Chemical (ATC) Classification is an internationally accepted classification system for medicines based on therapeutic indication.

ATC search ability can give Institutional and HMO buyers an advantage while negotiating with suppliers as the full alternative medicine landscape will be available to them.
ATC 4 search is standard feature available to all members of the Pharma14 platform.

The EU recently adopted new measures to increase the competitive strength of its generic and biosimilar manufacturers. Regulation (EC) No 469/2009.
This new legislation will grant exceptions to the protection of original medicines (SPC - Supplementary protection certificate) in the case of export or stockpiling for EU 'day-one' entry.
Due to this new rule, EU manufacturers will be allowed to produce generic medicines or a biosimilar versions of a SPC protected medicine while the SPC is still in force, if the purpose of this manufacturing is for export to a non EU country where protection has already expired or never existed previously.
In the case of EU stockpiling, the new measure grants producers the right to start manufacturing during the six month period before SPC expiration.
This new measure will ensure rapid entry into market of generics and biosimilars on expiration day.
