In the middle of 2019 an experiment on product traceability was started in Russia. As marking, this measure is directed towards controlling turnover of contrafact and contraband products and allowing tracking of a product from the moment of its import to Russia and up to its sale to the consumer. The difference is that the traceability system controls the whole shipment rather then single goods and it doesn’t require the seller to have any special equipment.
Currently connecting to the system is voluntary, however from July 2021 it will become mandatory for all importers of the following categories of goods:
- Refrigeration equipment;
- Some types of industrial equipment: forklift trucks, bulldozers etc.;
- Washing machines and baby strollers;
- Monitors and projectors;
- Electronic integral circuits;
- Children's seats for cars.
In addition companies and individual entrepreneurs will be obliged to provide quarterly reports on the operations with traced goods:
- VAT payers will provide data in the VAT declaration;
- Others – as a separate report.
Non-providing or untimely reports are expected to be fined.
