Policy Win: The Procurement Procedure for Enteral Feeds Was Improved

Ministry for Development of Economy, Trade and Agriculture of Ukraine improved the procurement procedure for enteral feeds by introducing respective amendments to Common Procurement Vocabulary (DK 021:2015), following the respective Chamber’s proposal. This decision now allows to proceed easily with enteral feeds procurement through public procurement system “ProZorro”.

Previous wording of DK 021:2015 contained incorrect translation in the part of enteral feeds’ code, which led to misclassification of such products as a medicinal product. Given the fact that according to Ukrainian legislation enteral feed is not a medicinal product, its procurement procedure was de facto blocked.

As a result of coordinated efforts of the Ministry for Development of Economy, Trade and Agriculture, Ministry of Health and business community on implementation of efficient translation of DK 021:2015 in accordance with provisions of the European Common Procurement Vocabulary, the procurement procedure for enteral feeds was improved.
