Medicine sale license in Ukraine

The pharmacy business is one of the most profitable in Ukraine. People always get sick and need to be provided with medicine. There are dozens of well-known pharmacy chains in Ukraine, which absolutely does not prevent smaller entrepreneurs from opening up and quietly occupying their own small niche.

Since medicines must be sold in a controlled manner, because their incorrect use can cause harm, the pharmacy business itself must meet strict criteria. This is done, foremost, to protect both the owners of the pharmacy and its customers.

Clients - from counterfeit drugs, and other dangers, including themselves.

Pharmacists - from, unfortunately, the existing danger of drug addicts breaking into the pharmacy.

Such control is carried out using a license. After all, in order to obtain it, you will have to work on preparing both the premises and the personnel, including in the field of security.

Our team has more than 15 years of experience working with pharmacies throughout Ukraine. We will help you obtain this license simply and hassle-free.

How to get a license to operate drugstore in Ukraine?

All the requirements that are presented to you if you want to get a license can be grouped into three separate groups:

  • Requirements for the pharmacy premises and its protection system;

  • Personnel requirements;

  • Requirements for equipment and place of storage of drugs.

By the way, the requirements, for example, for the area of the premises, will differ depending on where exactly you plan to open a business - in the city or in the village.

It’s also important to know that your premises must meet the requirements not only on paper. Unlike many other licenses, in the case of a pharmacy, a commission will be formed that will visit your facility and inspect it before making a decision on the license.

That is why the first thing we do is inspect the premises, its equipment, its protection and other factors that will be checked by the licensing authority. From practice, we can say that Jack will then, in a situation of searching for premises, find a closed pharmacy where you can move in with new equipment and a brand.

The fact is that even such things as doors, windows, locks on them, even the structure of the ceiling will be checked! All this must be reliably protected not only from burglary, but also from fire.

If you are just planning to look for premises, we will tell you exactly what to look for in order to narrow your search and not make mistakes, which means not to waste time and money.
