Law on veterinary medicine, +2.0 points

Law 1206-IX harmonizes national legislation with the EU law. It reduces the number of veterinary documents and the time to obtain them, introduces electronic permits and prescriptions for veterinary drugs, increases liability for violations in the area of veterinary medicine. It also abolishes the re-registration of veterinary drugs every 5 years, introducing instead post-registration monitoring of their efficacy. 

Law on financial leasing, +2.0 points

The law on leasing was enacted in 1997 and has only ever been amended twice (i.e. in 1999 and 2004). Since then, a number of problems have accumulated alongside an inconsistent body of case law. Law 1201-IX aims to address these issues.
