In Russia, the rules for the formation of first-aid kits in cars have changed: drivers will be able to complete the first-aid kit themselves in accordance with the list of the Ministry of Health. Reported by TASS Saturday 21 November
So, from January 1, the requirement to purchase a ready-made first-aid kit is removed from motorists. Drivers will be able to replenish it as needed.
The Ministry of Health proposed to change the composition of the first-aid kit in August, the final requirements for its configuration were approved on November 10. In particular, the mandatory first aid kit included two medical masks, a package of sterile wipes, and a pair of medical gloves. The updated requirements imply the rejection of small bandages, sterile bandages and bactericidal plasters.
Previously produced first aid kits can be used and sold for another five years.
Now the composition of the automobile first-aid kit, approved back in 2009, includes, among other things, several types of sterile and non-sterile bandages, a tourniquet, a dressing bag, and a device for artificial respiration. For lack of a first-aid kit, a fine of 500 rubles is threatened.
