Turkish Pharmaceutical Law and Regulations in Turkey

In today’s world, pharmaceuticals are very important in every field and have turned into a very big sector economically. The preparation of drugs by industrial methods, not by pharmacists, and the use of chemical synthetic substances rather than natural substances have caused drugs to become an increasing danger for humans. Because, as a result of all treatments done today, drugs are prescribed to people. The concept of “medical product” can be used as a parent concept to express all products used in the field of medicine. This includes drugs, medical supplies and all products related to medicine. Pharmaceutical law, on the other hand, is the field of law that deals with all legal issues and questions related to pharmaceuticals.

The basic distinction between drugs is prescription and over-the-counter medicine. However, it is necessary to focus on the original drug and the generic drug. Original drug is an international term used for new drugs that have been proven to have a positive effect on a particular disease as a result of long studies and clinical studies, based on a patented molecule and previously unique. After the legal protection period of the original drug expires, similar drugs can be put on the market by pharmaceutical companies. These drugs are called generic drugs.

The drug manufacturer must obtain permission from the regulatory authority to put the drug on the market. In order to obtain this permission, it has to submit data on the effectiveness, safety and quality of the drug to the regulatory authority. Pharmaceutical manufacturers produce these data with their own clinical trials. In other words, the data showing that the drugs are effective, safe and of high quality are not provided by the administration; produced by the drug manufacturer. Licensing of drugs is an administrative law enforcement activity in terms of its nature, since it is in question to prevent and prevent the placing of drugs that do not have the necessary qualifications on the market with the licensing of drugs. According to special legislation, the Ministry of Health is authorized to carry out licensing, permitting and pricing.

In terms of drugs that can be sold without a prescription, it is promoted by placing an advertisement; Provided that it is limited to the description and newspapers, the opportunity is provided depending on certain form conditions.
