Retail trade in medicinal products

Retail trade in medicinal products is the activity of purchasing, storing and dispensing a medicinal product or the use of a medicinal product with a health-care or veterinary service.

Retail trade in medicinal products for human use, which is accompanied by adequate expert support with advisory services, and retail trade in medicinal products for human use which are used for the treatment of animals, are performed in pharmacies and specialised shops, while retail trade in medicinal products for use in veterinary medicine is also implemented in veterinary organisations and other organisations which perform veterinary activities under the regulations on veterinary medicine, along with services provided to animals which these organisations have on record, or of they visit owners or caretakers of animals to make preventive veterinary or therapeutic interventions on animals.

Medicinal products for retail trade in specialised shops for which a medical or veterinary prescription is not required can be placed on the market, but only those products which are permitted by the competent authority by granting marketing authorisation.
