Russia: Identification marking experiment for perfumery

The Government has commenced an experiment on marking perfumery products with identification signs. The experiment is to be conducted from 1 July 2019 to 30 November 2019. 

The purpose of the experiment is to test the available technical means that may be used for identification marking of perfumery. The purpose of the subsequent mandatory identification marking of perfumery is to prevent counterfeit and unlawful goods from circulating on the market and to ensure traceability of each product along the supply chain in the Russian Federation.

Participants of the perfumery circulation market (i.e. manufacturers, importers and distributors) can voluntary participate in the experiment. In order to participate in the experiment, they are required to complete an application form based on the Methodical Recommendations and the relevant procedure which are adopted separately.
