The CFDA announced the Circular on the Measures for the Supervision and Administration of Online Drug Sales (“Draft”). Under the Draft, manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers should obtain a Drug Manufacturing License or Drug Trading License to do business online. Only retailers are allowed to sell medicines to patients directly. Internet pharmacies (including third-party platforms) must have sufficient control systems regarding: cybersecurity, database management, proper drug delivery, drug safety, pharmaceutical consulting and ADR reporting.
