The President of Poland signed the amendment to the Pharmaceutical Law which fundamentally modifies rules of granting a pharmacy license. In recent days media speculated that the President would veto the legislation.

The act in particular provides that a pharmacy license will not be granted if a municipality has less than 3.000 inhabitants for one pharmacy or if there is another pharmacy built in a distance less than 500 meters measured in a straight line.

The act will come into force 30 days after its publication in the Journal of Laws.

The Act is available under the following link -$file/1126_u.pdf
