The Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) announced it has submitted applications to the World Health Organization (WHO) for an Emergency Use Listing (EUL) and prequalification of the Sputnik V vaccine on October 27, 2020.

The Russian Federation has become one of the first countries to apply to WHO for prequalification of its vaccine against COVID-19.

The WHO prequalification of medicines assesses the quality, safety and efficacy of medicines. A medicinal product is included in the list of prequalified medicinal products subject to compliance with established requirements and standards of WHO.

In the face of the ongoing pandemic, accelerated vaccine registration under the EUL procedure will make the Russian vaccine available globally in a shorter time frame than usual procedures and will support global efforts to prevent the coronavirus infection.

Successful prequalification will enable Sputnik V to be included in the list of medicines used by international procurement agencies and countries to guide the bulk purchasing of medicines.
