Law on the right to produce medications for emergency aid to other countries without the consent of the patent owner

June 11, 2021

The President signed a Federal Law On Amending Part Four of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation.

The Federal Law gives the Government of the Russian Federation the right to make a decision, in cases and on the terms envisaged by an international treaty with the Russian Federation, on using an invention to produce a medication on the territory of the Russian Federation with a view to exporting it without the consent of the patent owner, which will be notified about this as soon as possible and paid commensurate compensation.

In addition, said medication packaging must include special markings to this effect.
