Legal background

In September 2010, the new Federal Law number 61 "On Circulation of Medicines" came into force in the Russian Federation. This law has introduced a number of changes to the system of registration of medicines. One of the most significant changes is general requirement of Russian bioavailability / bioequivalence studies for all newly registered drugs for oral administration. This requirement led to significant changes in the field of clinical trials in Russia: Since 2010, the requirement for own Russian bioequivalence studies applies also to foreign companies no matter if they have already conducted these studies with the same drug, for example the EU, Canada or the United States. Even if the reference drug is a global drug registered in the EU, the U.S. or other countries, and its first bioequivalence study was conducted in EU, Canada, the U.S. etc. with the same global original drug as a reference, the study should be repeated in the Russian Federation.
