BC, Tallinn, 28.03.2013.Print version
The Estonian Riigikogu approved on Wednesday the amendments to the medicines law, as the result of which, it is now allowed to sell and buy medicines via Internet in Estonia, LETA/Postimees Online reports.

The holders of general pharmacy operating permits get the right to operate long-distance sale of medicines for human healthcare as well as veterinary purposes.


Both over-the-counter and prescription medicines for humans can be sold long distance, but in case of prescription medicines, the prescription has to be an electronic one and recorded in the prescriptions centre.


The sale of prescription medicines used for veterinary purposes will be restricted since there is no digital prescription for these medicines.
