Financial Director of L'Etoile chain of stores
«We have thoroughly studied the experience of marking other product groups. We see that there are certain characteristic features of our industry that must be reflected in the new procedure. Therefore, L’Etoile has joined the working group for conducting a pilot project. We have already taken part in public hearings held by the Ministry of Industry and have voiced our proposals for the organisation of marking in order to create new jobs in Russia and lower the risk of substandard services being provided in this sphere. The introduction of mandatory marking will help to protect the end user from buying counterfeit perfumes at kiosks and stalls near subway stations or online».
