China : Medicine administration law enters into force

The amended law now introduces a “full traceability” procedure and a medicine recall system which also applies to online medicines. The amendment also increases minimum and maximum penalties: for example, fake medicines manufacturers are liable to a fine of 15 to 30 times their profits, compared to two to five times previously. The law also stipulates several cases where more severe penalties are applicable, such as manufacturing fake or substandard medicines for children and pregnant women.
