Ecorys: Study of regulatory restrictions in the field of pharmacies

To evaluate how the various rules applicable to pharmacies impact on the productivity, the allocative efficiency and quality of pharmacy services in the different Member States, the Commission asked ECORYS Nederland BV to carry out a study into the sector. This study is the result of close to eighteen months work and interested parties have been invited to provide their input. It provides an analysis on how differing national laws regulating pharmacies impact on the effective functioning of the Internal Market, and therefore on the performance of the European pharmacy services sector as a whole. The study concentrates on community pharmacists in the EU-25.
