Track & trace for tobacco

On March 1, 2019, the registration of stores and manufacturers in the Chestny ZNAK National track & trace digital system became mandatory.

To get registered in the track & trace system, please complete the application form.

Starting July 1, 2019, the release of unmarked products will be ceased: 

  • manufacturers will mark every pack of cigarettes with a unique Data Matrix code;
  • the supply of marked cigarettes to the distributor directly from the manufacturer will be accompanied by an electronic universal transfer document (UTD) with product codes using e-document flow systems;
  • when cigarettes are sold at market outlets, the DataMatrix code of each pack or carton will be scanned. During the sale of goods, the cash register transfers information to the FDO that the receipt contains marked products. 

The retail sale of unmarked packs of cigarettes is permitted until July 1, 2020.

The Center for Research in Perspective Technologies is the operator (Operator — CRPT), and the project is coordinated by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia. Tobacco products are marked in consumer and group packaging, and the shipping package may also be marked.

All major manufacturers of tobacco products, such as Japan Tobacco International, Philip Morris International, Japan Tobacco International, British American Tobacco, Imperial Tobacco, etc., participate in the experiment, as well as retail chains, distributors, and software developers.

Viktor Evtukhov

State Secretary/Deputy Minister for Industry and Trade

«The results of the first stage have proven the marking method to be the correct choice. From these results, we can be sure that the industry is ready for the mass release of coded products. By the end of the year, it is planned to increase the amount of marked tobacco products 175 times compared to the results of the first stage — and reach up to 100 million packs».

Sergey Golovko

Vice President of JTI on Corporate Relations and Communications in Russia

«It’s been seven months since the experiment qed, and we can already see that Data Matrix is the right choice for tobacco products marking since it facilitates sustainable production and further traceability of products. In addition, it is a cost-effective track & trace digital solution for all market participants compared to existing alternatives».

Aleksandr Mironenko

Director for Communications with EEU and Protection of PMI Trademarks in Russia

«During the first six months of the pilot project, we did not experience any significant technical issues related to retrofitting the plant or to the production process specifics. Taking part in the experiment did not require rebuilding the company’s production lines».

Maxim Kurgansky

Head of BAT Russia for Combating Illegal Circulation of Tobacco Products

«During the pilot project, a track & trace system has been developed which has no comparable counterparts across the globe. During the first stage of the experiment, the operators of IT systems, manufacturers and retailers were able to test the marking solutions and find areas for improvement».

Aleksandr Aleksandrov

Senior Manager at Imperial Tobacco for Regulation and Interaction with State Authorities

«For us, the importance of conducting the experiment before introducing mandatory marking is apparent to us. The pilot project allows us to uncover problems and bottlenecks as well as determine the objectives that need to be fulfilled during project implementation, as well as plan for the necessary investments in organizational steps».

Elena Aparina

Advisor of the Chairman of the Board of Taxcom

«Since the very beginning of the pilot project, fiscal data operator Taxcom developed a special technology for transferring data through universal source documents for all project participants, which has made it possible to submit data on unique codes of packs, cartons and boxes to the CRPT system within the prescribed periods. We support the pilot project for tobacco products marking and believe that building a system of full traceability is a truly important and necessary initiative, for both manufacturers and consumers».

Alexey Grigoryev

Head of the Moscow Representative Office of METRO AG

«METRO welcomes the state’s readiness to work out all functional elements of the system for traceability of tobacco products within the scope of the pilot project. For our company, it is important to not only adjust our own processes but also to fully account for the specific needs of METRO’s key clients — representatives of small and medium-sized businesses in the retail and hospitality sectors».

Timofey Moshkov

Head of the Logistics and Planning Office of MEGAPOLIS Trading Company

«The traceability scheme for tracking tobacco products is based on the concept of e-document flow, which MEGAPOLIS Trading Company uses in its operations. During the experiment, we hope to refine the interaction system within the e-document flow, not only with retail chains, but also with other participants of the tobacco market».

Stanislav Naumov

Director for Interaction with Authorities at X5 Retail Group

«We see great potential in the tested track & trace system for bona fide participants of the consumer market in the fight against illegal tobacco product circulation across the country. We therefore actively take part in the experiment».

Vladlen Maksimov

Head of the League of Freedom trade union

«In my opinion, the option to use digital marking for tobacco goods is the soundest one for businesses out of all those proposed (tags, etc.). I see no significant reasons for an increase in the price of goods».

About digital marking
  • What is IS MOPT?

    IS MOPT is the Track & trace Information system for marking and monitor the tobacco products circulation.

  • What is marking? Why is it being introduced in Russia?

    The problem of illegal product circulation is particularly acute for Russia: the share of illegal circulation in light manufacturing is about 35%, in the perfume market — 20%, and in the medicine market — up to 10%.

    According to research by Kantar TNS analytical agency, the share of the illegal cigarette market in Russia increased to 7.7% in Q1 2018, as compared to 4.6% the previous year.

    In December 2017, Russian President Vladimir Putin approved the resolution of the Government for the creation of the National track & trace digital system by 2024 based at the Center for Research in Perspective Technologies (CRPT).
    CRPT is a joint project of USM (Peterservice, 50%), Rostec State Corporation (Avtomatika Concern, 25%) and Elvis-Plus Group (25%).

    The Track & trace system being created by the Centre, known as Chestny ZNAK, makes it possible to effectively combat counterfeit and contraband goods and protects legal businesses and brands of bona fide manufacturers and consumers.
    Digital marking will allow businesses to increase their production capacity, improve logistic schemes, increase market share and ultimately increase revenue:

    • by reducing the share of contraband and counterfeit goods, legal manufacturers will increase the share and volume of production by 5–50%, depending on the product group;
    • businesses can switch their production to Industry 4.0, working based on the Just-in-Time principle. By receiving data on products online, they will be able to plan production to the optimal level, reduce stock surplus, and increase turnover of goods;
    • businesses will be able to save significantly on logistics: during the implementation of full traceability, the manufacturer or logistics company can receive the latest statistics on sales geography, performance and seasonality, which will make it possible to modify logistics systems and optimize shipments and inventory;
    • businesses will adjust their accounting processes. These days, many entrepreneurs do not have their own data on balances and goods codes in warehouse and stores. Without the correct accounting, it is impossible to calculate profits and plan purchases; therefore, automation would help entrepreneurs to get their business in order;
    • businesses will switch to the e-document flow. EDF will radically reduce the volume of paper documents that are still actively exchanged by Russian companies and cut business costs, as well as improve labor productivity.

  • Who made the decision to introduce the track & trace tobacco experiment in Russia, and when? Which state authorities will oversee this system?

    In accordance with Resolution No.1433 of the Government of the Russian Federation dated 27 November 2017, «On Conducting a Track & trace Experiment for Tobacco Products using Identification Tools and Monitoring the Circulation of Tobacco Products», an ongoing experiment was launched on 15 January 2018 within the Russian Federation, and is coordinated by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia.

    As of March 2019, the digital marking will be mandatory for the tobacco industry. Amendments were made to Federal Law FZ-15 that approve the deadline of 1 March 2019 as the start of the mandatory marking and were signed by Russian President Vladimir Putin on 30 July 2018. It had previously been supposed that the marking would be implemented as early as 1 July 2018.

  • What are the project dates?

    On March 1, 2019, the registration of stores and manufacturers in the Chestny ZNAK National track & trace digital system became mandatory.

    To get registered in the track & trace system, please complete the application form.

    Starting July 1, 2019, the release of unmarked products will be ceased: 
    • when cigarettes are sold at market outlets, the DataMatrix code of each pack or carton will be scanned. During the sale of goods, the cash register transfers information to the FDO that the receipt contains marked products. 
    • the supply of marked cigarettes to the distributor directly from the manufacturer will be accompanied by an electronic universal transfer document (UTD) with product codes using e-document flow systems.

    Starting July 1, 2020, the circulation of unmarked products will be ceased:

    • the supply of marked cigarettes to retail points of sale and sub-distributors will be accompanied by universal transfer documents (UTD) with product codes using e-document flow systems. 

  • Starting from what date must companies and individual entrepreneurs concerned with retail sale of tobacco products:

    — send information to the monitoring system about retail sales of tobacco products;
    — send information to the monitoring system about receiving tobacco products from suppliers;
    — sell only marked tobacco products?
    Companies and individual entrepreneurs concerned with retail sale of tobacco products are to submit the following information to the Track & trace Information system for monitor:

    • starting from 1 July 2019, information on retail sale of marked tobacco products (cigarettes) produced in the Russian Federation or imported to the Russian Federation.
    • starting from 1 July 2020, information on receipt of tobacco products from suppliers and other operations with tobacco products, including decommissioning, as established by the legislation.
    Retail sale of unmarked tobacco products, including cigarettes produced in the Russian Federation or imported to the Russian Federation after 1 July 2019, is allowed until 1 July 2020.
    Starting from 1 July 2020, only marked tobacco products are admitted for sale.

  • How can retail vendors in remote areas submit information to the track & trace system?

    Entrepreneurs who use cash registers without transferring data to an FDO will need to enter the data on the codes of the sold packs into the personal account in the monitoring system once every three days.

  • What is the pilot project, and why is it necessary?

    Before the transition to the mandatory marking, pilot projects are conducted for each group of goods. They are necessary for representatives of the industry to be able to prepare for working with marked products in a calm manner, together with the project’s operator. This includes adapting equipment for printing codes, upgrading cash register software, etc.

    These pilot projects must commence at least a year before the mandatory marking begins, allowing the relevant industry to prepare for implementation and minimize costs.

  • Will any payment be collected from participants of the pilot project to generate the codes? What is IS MOPT?

    At the pilot project stage, all participants will gain access to the system, including the generation of digital marking codes and traceability of their circulation, free of charge.

  • Who participates in the pilot project; who can join and how?

    The experiment participants are tobacco companies in Russia, which manufacture about 95% of all tobacco products in the country, (Japan Tobacco International, Philip Morris International, British American Tobacco, Imperial Tobacco, Donskoy Tabak, Korea Tomorrow & Global Corporation, Union Tobacco Factory), the distributors through which over 88% of tobacco products are sold (Megapolis Trading Company, SNS Group), and retail organisations (X5 Retail Group, Metro C&C, Lenta, Magnit, Dixy, etc).

    To become a participant of the pilot project, submit an application at https://честныйзнак.рф/

  • How will operations be affected for each market player after they switch to working with marked tobacco packs?

    Changes for market players will be minimal.

    Manufacturers need to adjust the process of applying a Data Matrix digital code on packs and a linear code on cartons. The digital code applied to each product item will be scanned by members of the sales chain. Information on their movements will be transferred to the Chestny ZNAK Track & trace system.

    Distributors will deliver the data to the track & trace system in electronic format via e-document flow operators, by using a Universal Transfer Document (UTD) comprising a waybill and an invoice. This document has been developed by the Federal Tax Service of Russia and is recommended for use. Those who are not yet using the EDF system must begin to do so.

    When the goods are sold, after arriving at the retail sales points, information on the sale must be submitted to the Chestny ZNAK track & trace system. For this purpose, the code on the pack needs to be scanned at the cash register, and it will be automatically transmitted to Chestny ZNAK through the fiscal data operator to whom the cash till is connected. Since the code contains the product GTIN, it is enough to just scan the Data Matrix itself. As the system already contains data on the maximum retail price, the cashier would not need to input this information at the point of sale.

    As of 1 July 2019, all points of sale will be equipped with online cash register in accordance with the requirements of Federal Law 54-FZ, and it will not be necessary to install additional software and hardware such as the Unified State Automated Information System. Costs on the adaptation of the marking processes will be minimal for retailers.

  • Necessary resources and equipment for implementation of the track & trace system for tobacco products:

    To utilize the system, the following technical equipment is required:

    For manufacturers:

    • equipment and software for serialization and aggregation (unless previously purchased);
    • recorders of the emission of marking codes (provided to operators of the project by the Center for Research in Perspective Technologies free of charge);
    • connection to the e-document flow operator (if EDF was not previously used).

    For distributors and wholesalers:

    • connection to an e-document flow operator (EDF) and a digital signature (unless issued earlier).

    For a retail point of sale:

    • a 2D scanner (unless purchased before) and software update for the already installed online cash register.
    The necessary costs to implement marking and traceability for different groups of market participants are non-recurrent and fixed:

    For manufacturers:

    • if the necessary equipment and software are not available, manufacturers will have to invest a lump sum of 6 to 15 million rubles in order to purchase the production line and adapt it depending on the selected ERP system
    • the emission recorder is provided by CRPT free of charge
    • for bulk sales, it is necessary to use EDF to send source documents the average market tariff for processing one document in EDF is RUB 5.4. Average annual expenses on EDF services will be about RUB 21 mln for major manufacturers and RUB 0.7 mln for minor ones

    For distributors and wholesalers:

    • depending on the scale of the distributor’s or wholesaler’s business, the annual EDF expenses may vary (the approximate estimate, depending on the average market tariff for processing one document in EDF is RUB 5.4):
    • the EDF expenses for wholesalers with a turnover of 50 mln packs per year will be about RUB 270,000 per year
    • the EDF expenses for distributors with a turnover of 9 bln packs per year will be about RUB 49 mln per year
    • the EDF expenses for wholesalers with a turnover of 3 bln packs per year will be about RUB 15 mln per year
    • the EDF expenses for wholesalers with a turnover of 1 bln packs per year will be about RUB 5 mln per year
    • the incoming traffic of electronic documents is not charged

    For retail points of sale:

    • if the seller does not have a 2D scanner, a lump-sum investment of RUB 4,000 will be needed to purchase one.
    • for small-scale retailers, it may be necessary to install the updated cash register software to work with the marked products. Cash register software support — RUB 7,500/year. This information can be specified at service centers of cash register equipment vendors.

    It is worth mentioning that the costs spent on EDF are recovered as a result of reduced turnover of paper documents and, consequently, savings on printing, sending and storing paper documents. The average cost of a paper document is RUB 20, which is 4 times higher than the cost of an electronic document.

  • I am a software developer, and I have a proposal for the experiment operator. Whom should I contact?

    We invite solution developers and integrators to participate in the project and wish to make our system as open, convenient and useful for the market as possible. Send your proposals to support@crpt.ru

  • Hotline for contacting market players with questions about the project.
