Pharma and medical devices
Russia has signed the Agreement on the Common Principles for the Circulation of Medical Devices (Products Intended for Medical Purpose and Medical Technical Equipment) in the Eurasian Economic Community. The Agreement is to enter into force after 1 January 2016.
As the European Union has introduced a new sanctions "package", Russia may, in response, introduce an additional import ban on clothes, wine, vehicles, luxury goods, fridges and petrochemicals from EU or the US. There is no final list and no draft regulation imposing this ban but, as the state officials say, certain response measures are sure to be introduced.
