An experiment to block the sale of illegal products

#industry news

The Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin decided to conduct an experiment in the country to introduce a system that excludes the technical possibility of selling expired products, as well as illegally introduced tobacco and nicotine-containing products.

It will start on February 1 and last until August 1.

It included certain types of dairy products, including those intended for children, bottled drinking and mineral water, beer and some low-alcohol beverages. The goods not allowed for sale will be tracked using the means of marking the "Chestny Znak" system.

Smoking, chewing and snuff tobacco, hookah tobacco, smoking mixtures for hookah that do not contain tobacco, as well as electronic tobacco heating systems were selected from tobacco and nicotine-containing products.

The main task of the experiment is to work out a mechanism for exchanging information about marked products between retail outlets and an information system for monitoring the turnover of goods subject to mandatory marking. If the results are positive, then in the future the purchase of illegal products or expired products will be blocked by cash registers with the appropriate software.
