Russia Serialization Deadlines: Overview of Russian track and trace requirements

Russia has the strictest supply chain regulations in the world. Are you ready to comply?

Some Russia serialization deadlines have come and gone; others are scheduled for 2021 and 2022. The fact is that the Russian supply chain is undergoing massive change. The transformation is due to be complete by 2024 and will affect virtually every industry, from pharmaceuticals and footwear to tires and tobacco.

The regulations are complex, but the gist is that companies must connect and comply with Russia’s National Track and Trace Digital System, known as Chestny ZNAK. Requirements and Russia serialization deadlines vary by industry, but hallmarks include DataMatrix codes, serialization, aggregation, crypto codes, and electronic reporting and records management.

The paper begins with an overview of Chestny ZNAK, the regulations and Russia serialization deadlines, and considerations for stakeholders (manufacturers, importers, wholesale distributors, and retailers). It then addresses each industry, including labeling requirements and detailed lists of products that must be serialized.

It provides a comprehensive examination Russia serialization deadlines and the requirements for every industry that currently must comply with Chestny ZNAK:

  • Bicycles
  • Dairy
  • Footwear
  • Fur
  • Light industry
  • Medications
  • Perfumes
  • Photo cameras and flashbulbs
  • Tires
  • Tobacco

It also dives into Russia serialization deadlines and requirements for ongoing or scheduled “experiments” (i.e., pilots):

  • Bottled drinking water
  • Wheelchairs
  • Biologically active food additives
  • Brewing products and low-alcohol drinks

rfxcel is the leader in Russian supply chain compliance, and we’ve been prepared for the Chestny ZNAK regulations and Russia serialization deadlines since 2018. Our powerful rfxcel Traceability System (rTS) platform ensures companies in any industry will remain compliant. Furthermore:

Blockchain Based Supply Chain Traceability

Blockchain Based Supply Chain Traceability:

Blockchain is here to stay, and companies in diverse industries are either investigating how they might benefit from its strengths or have already invested in using the technology in their operations.

As you probably know, a key appeal of blockchain is its ability to maintain immutable records in a decentralized fashion. For supply chain traceability, blockchain allows the provenance of any product to be easily demonstrated with and supported by immutable, tamper-proof data. This not only improves product safety, expedites regulatory compliance, and helps prevent counterfeiting, fraud, and waste — it enhances transparency and visibility, and creates new possibilities to engage consumers with compelling, verifiable product stories.

This white paper provides an overview of the origins of blockchain, from its earliest applications in cryptocurrency and recordkeeping, and discusses how it has transitioned into other industries, including supply chain management. In so doing, we hope to demystify blockchain, which despite its growth and the “buzz” surrounding it, remains opaque to many.

We also examine rfxcel’s Blockchain solutions, our proprietary, platform-agnostic solution that helps customers and their partners ensure that they can interface with blockchain applications. You’ll see how our solutions improve end-to-end supply chain traceability, visibility, and transparency, and learn how it can work in the pharmaceutical, food and beverage/agribusiness, consumer goods, and government industries.

Our trust in the items we consume, from prescription drugs and organic foods to name-brand designer goods, depends on the reliability of supply chains. For almost 20 years, rfxcel has committed itself to making supply chains safer, faster, and more traceable and transparent. We recognize the potential of blockchain and will work with you when you’re ready to see how it might benefit your operations.

 

Dispensers, the DSCSA, and the “3Ts”

The next DSCSA deadline for dispensers is just months away. Our white paper gets into the specifics of what dispensers will have to do to verify and authenticate drugs this November and what they’ve had to do in previous years. rfxcel has committed itself to creating educational materials about dispensers’ responsibilities under the DSCSA, including Web pages, flyers, webinars, and this white paper. If you want more information about your specific needs, please contact us today.
