The Role of Private Sectors in Electronic-Administration of Drugs - A Case...
Tue 8 November 2016, 13:00 – 14:00 GMT
This is a free event but registration is required in advance. Lunch will be provided.
The seminar will mainly discuss the controversial role which private sectors have played in the Implementation Scheme of Drug Electronic Supervision in China, considering some important issues raised in a recent case, Yangtianhe Pharmacy v. Chinese Food and Drug Administration (CFDA). It is revealed in this case that although the operation of electronic supervision system largely depends on high-tech enterprises from private sectors, their role as part of the regulatory body remains under-regulated. It is the concern that the involvement of private sectors in public administration may cause distorting effects on a fair market environment that triggered the commencement of the above case. Through the examination of remedies available to other market actors, it will reflect on the possible reform that should take place in the future across several legal departments.
