Abstract
The article discusses the features of the formation of the institute of criminal responsibility for the falsification of drugs in the pre-revolutionary period of Russia, compares the authors’ opinions regarding the period of responsibility for the falsification of drugs, gives another, not previously reflected in other works, opinion regarding the first appearance of responsibility for the crime in question. Consistently analyzed domestic laws containing the norms of criminal responsibility. The analysis of the development of pharmaceutical activity in Russia and the legislative consolidation of supervision over the quality of production and circulation of medicines is carried out. In the course of the analysis of domestic sources of criminal law, the author comes to the conclusion that the responsibility for the falsification of medicines was officially formalized for the first time in the Penal Code of 1845. The text presents extracts of articles of the Criminal and Correctional Penalty Claim of1845, which stipulate liability for drug trafficking of inadequate quality, including an article that explicitly stipulates liability for the falsification of medicinal products. Also presented are extracts of articles of the Code, which are aimed at eliminating the prerequisites of falsification of drugs. In the final part of the study, the author comes to the conclusion that the requirements and principles for the manufacture of medicines, established by the 1845 regulation, fully comply with the requirements and principles established by modern legislation. Acts, responsibility for which was established in 1845, have not lost their public danger and are relevant in modern times. Consequently, the experience of using the code of 1845 can be applied when reforming the current legislation of Russia.
