ΤΟ ΤΗΕ DIRECTORS GENERAL

Dear colleagues,

Following our meeting with the General Secretary of MoH, we would like to inform you the following, re the process of approval from the respective Committee for imports of medicinal products during capital control.

The committee is under the supervision of State General Accounting Office and meets daily, in order to approve the respective applications that are send from the Banks, that are contracted with their system. The 4 systemic banks are contracted with the SGAO.

However, it is uncertain whether any foreign banks are. In cases where your bank is not in connection with the SGAO, they must either apply for or you should use choose one of the already associated banks.

Additionally, we were informed that there are no pending approvals regarding pharmaceutical products
