CHAPTER IV.—Importation into Russia of Drugs

Application for permission to introduce drugs and patent medicines
into Russia must be addressed, postage paid, to the Medical Board
of the Medical Department of the Ministry of the Interior. Two
stamps, of the value of one rouble each, must be attached to the
petition, and every additional sheet must be stamped with a stamp
of like value. The petition must contain an exact and detailed
description of the drug or medicine, also accompanying it must be
three samples in their original packages, id est, in those packages in
which the product will be imported. Prior to giving its decision, the
Medical Board verifies the composition by chemical analysis. If the
Medical Board authorises the importation of compound medicines,
they must say each time whether the medicine may be sold by
chemists or kept by druggists.2

The medicine or drug must be of such a nature as not to deteriorate
when stored for considerable periods or when transported for great

advertisement require the special sanction of the Direction General of the
Press (" Glavnoye upravleniye po delam petchati").

All expenses of carriage, &c., are borne by the applicant.

If a foreign firm wants to entrust an attorney with their
application to the Russian authorities, a corresponding power of attorney
must be presented.

To all documents written in a foreign language, a translation into
the Russian language, officially attested, must be enclosed, in
accordance with Vol. I. Art. 3, of the " Svod Zakonov."
