Registration of medical products in Russia
The Russian market of medical equipment and products is one of the world’s most promising ones. Every year, dozens of new medical centres, both state-run and private, open in this country. The growing demand for quality medical services calls for state-of-the-art equipment.
All medical products sold and used in Russia must be registered to block out defective and unsafe products.
The registration process includes a series of tests for compliance with existing regulations and consists of several steps such as preparation of documentation, clinical tests, evaluation of quality, efficacy and safety, etc. You can either do it yourself or hire a specialized agency. There are plenty of them in Russia.
Once you register your products, you have to find a customer. Russia is a huge country which makes participation in trade shows the most efficient and fast gateway to the Russian market.
The Russian Health Care Week, running in the centre of Moscow at Expocentre Fairgrounds, is the main platform in Russia to demonstrate new medical equipment, technologies and other medical products.
The Russian Health Care Week brings together major Russian and EAEU international trade shows for health care:
- the Zdravookhraneniye International Exhibition for Health Care, Medical Engineering and Pharmaceuticals,
- the Healthy Lifestyle International Exhibition for Rehabilitation and Preventive Treatment Facilities, Medical Aesthetics, Health Improvement Technologies and Products for Healthy Lifestyle,
- MedTravelExpo Medical Clinics, Health and Spa Resorts International exhibition for medical and health-related services and health care technologies,
as well as For Healthy Life – the International Forum on Non-Communicable Disease Prevention and Promotion of Healthy Lifestyle.
The history of the Russian Health Care Week started with the launch of the Zdravookhraneniye exhibition for health care in 1974. Today, the Week is the largest block of exhibitions and congresses for the medical and health care industry in Russia and Eastern Europe. It is an official event of the Russian Ministry of Health Care.
Zdravookhraneniye and Healthy Lifestyle have become the best place to sign deals for medical equipment and pharmaceuticals.
