A new medicine chest A will make it easier to buy medicine abroad
New "Inventory, control document and user guidelines for medicaments and medical equipment of category A" entered into force on 1 December 2013. A period of 12 months had been allocated for replacement of the contents of medicine chest A, and thus the contents were required to comply with the new inventory from 1 December 2014.
The new contents of medicine chest A make it easier to buy medicine abroad and, thus, shipowners will not have to send applications for exemptions to the Danish Maritime Authority in a wide number of cases.
The new inventory has been issued as a consolidated publication in Danish and English and can be bought from Weilbach.
