On 7 December 2016 the Russian Government published Resolution #1268 (link in Russian) and extended a list “of certain types of medical devices originating from foreign countries subject to restrictions for state and municipal procurements in Russian Federation”. According to the Resolution, sixty two new types of medical devices have been added in the list. For such types of medical products tenders for state procurements will be closed for foreign manufacturers if at least two bids with similar medical devices from local manufacturers (Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus or Armenia) were submitted. The adoption of Resolution represents a continuation of the course of import substitution taken by the Russian Government in 2014.
