How to register a medicinal product in Ukraine?

In order to import medicines to Ukraine and sell them, one must undergo the state registration of medicines at the Ministry of Health. This requirement has been strictly observed since 2005, due to the harmonization of Ukrainian legislation with European laws.

Despite the fact that the requirements of the procedure are very similar to the European directives, there are national peculiarities in the domestic process, which may affect the regulatory processes.

The first stage of the drug registration service, which begins with a preliminary consultation (if necessary), includes the following stages:

  1. Sending the application to the Ministry of Health of Ukraine;

  2. Drafting and sending the registration form and accompanying documents to the SEC;

  3. Receiving a review of the application and registration form (approval, notes and comments);

  4. Receipt, payment, receipt of confirmation of payment for state fee and expert work.


Next comes the primary examination procedure. It consists of the following steps:

  1. Making a Registration Dossier based on the type of Application, checking the completeness of the materials;

  2. Working through the corrections to the Dossier or submitting its materials for expert review;

  3. Sending the Dossier to the expert commissions;

  4. Working through the corrections and comments from the commissions, entering them into the medicinal product’s instructions;

  5. Checking the quality of the drug performed by a specialized laboratory;

  6. Decision on registration of the medicinal product in Ukraine (conducted at the SEC meeting ;

  7. Coordination of documents (in particular, the draft registration certificate, Drug Master File, instructions for use, labeling of the package), obtaining a package of documents by the Ministry of Health of Ukraine;

  8. The final stage of the procedure is the signing of the Order on registration of the drug, recording the decision in the State Register of Ukraine, issuance of the original registration documents (certificate) and delivering it to the applicant.

There are also a number of requirements for the Dossier and its documentation. For example, the registration dossier must include 5 Modules and must be submitted exclusively in CTD format. There are also requirements for the language of the Dossier. This issue often raises doubts. Meanwhile, the five modules of the dossier can be submitted in the following languages:

  1. Exclusively in Ukrainian;

  2. Recommended to be translated into the state language, but not required;

  3. Partial translation into Ukrainian;

  4. Not to be translated;

How to register a medicinal product in Ukraine?

The registration procedure for medicinal products in Ukraine today is rather complicated. This is due to the fact that the state protects citizens from medicines of poor quality. In order to successfully pass this procedure it is necessary to pass the following stages:

  • The manufacturer of the medicinal product, as the person responsible for its quality, submits an application for registration together with the documents (micro-dossier). After the documents have been reviewed by the MOH, it is submitted to the State Expertise Centre (SEC). 

  • Then a contract is signed with the SCE and the invoices for the expertise and the state fee are paid. After this, a complete dossier for the medicinal product is sent.

  • The GEC Commission conducts an examination, during which it may ask for additional documents. A conclusion on whether the medicine is safe and effective can be made after chemical-pharmaceutical examination and laboratory testing. If the conclusion is positive, a decision is made to register the medicine. Also, the manufacturer receives a registration certificate which is valid for 5 years.


Since Ukraine is currently integrating into Europe, there is a need to improve the legislation relating to medicines. For this reason, the successful completion of the procedure requires legal competence and a background in its specific details.
