E-pharmacies may be regulated by December

The centre has started work on the final notification on regulating online pharmacies, after receiving more than 7,000 representations in favour of the draft document.

According to the proposed e-pharmacy rules, opened for public comments in September, only government-registered e-portals can sell medicines, but they are required to preserve prescriptions and verify details of patients and doctors.

“Any person who intends to conduct business of e-pharmacy shall apply for the grant of registration to the Central Licensing Authority in Form 18AA through the online portal of the central government,” the draft said.
