The Health Products Regulatory Authority (HPRA) Ireland released updated guidance on the "Guide to Wholesaling and Brokering of Medicinal Products for Human Use in Ireland".
In this document, guidance is provided regarding the regulations covering the wholesale distribution and brokering of medicinal products for human use in Ireland.
‘Sale by wholesale’ means sale or supply for the purposes of sale in the course of a business or for administration to patients in the course of professional practice and cognate words are construed accordingly. This includes all activities consisting of procuring, holding, supplying or exporting medicinal products, other than activities involving the sale or supply of such products to the public.
Brokering of medicinal products for human use means all activities in relation to the sale or purchase of medicinal products, except for wholesale distribution and sale by wholesale, that do not include physical handling and that consist of negotiating independently and on behalf of another legal or natural person.
A company conducting any such activities in relation to human medicines is considered a broker and must comply with the requirements for brokers set out in the Medicinal Products.
