According to market monitoring and surveillance data, it was found the difficulty in supervising the compliance with RDC No. 356 of 20 and acting consistently in ensuring the quality, safety and efficacy of products in circulation in the national market. In addition, several companies have expressed concern about the possible expiry of RDC No. 356 of 20, amended by 379 of 20, to the effect of the period necessary for depletion of stock of products manufactured or imported under the exceptionality regime. Thus, in order to increase regulatory predictability, it is suggested the definition of a deadline for exhaustion of the remaining stock of 120 days for products manufactured or imported, after the end of the term of the Resolution.
