6 months to correct the irregularities
The WIF decision indicates that 12 DOZ companies constitute a capital group which operates 16 pharmacies in Podlaskie Voivodeship. The anti-concentration limit in this region is four pharmacies.
Pursuant to the decision issued by the WIF in Podlasie, the DOZ pharmacy chain has six months to comply with the applicable regulations. Otherwise, the permits to operate 12 pharmacies may be withdrawn.
