France : Medicines to be sold per dose in pharmacies?

As part of the French Anti-Waste bill, ministers voted on an amendment to permit the sales of medicines by unit in pharmacies. The provision, which was part of Emmanuel Macron’s campaign commitments in 2017, has yet to pass the discussion stage which will start on December 9 in the National Assembly. The amendment paves the way for pharmacies to dispense medicines in doses as of January 1, 2022, “when their pharmaceutical format makes this possible”. If the amendment is adopted, a decree will then have to outline “procedures for packaging, labeling, patient information and tracking”.
