Bottled Water

September 1, 2021 — the start of mandatory registration in serialization system Chestny Znak / CRPT.

Manufacturers, importers, wholesalers, and retailers that sell packaged water, on September 1, 2021, or within 7 days from the date of the need to sell packaged water, must submit an application for registration in the serialization system Chestny Znak / CRPT.

December 1, 2021 – mandatory serialization for mineral water

Starts from December 1, 2021, serialization becomes mandatory for mineral water.* Mineral water manufacturers and importers must be registered in the Chestny Znak system and describe their products in the Nacionalnyy Catalog. By this time, the processes for ordering and payment for codes, as well as code application on the package, and introduction to the market, including report, should be fully implemented. The turnover of non-serialized mineral water becomes illegal on December 1, 2021.

March 1, 2021 – mandatory serialization for other categories of packaged drinking water.

Manufacturers and importers of any packaged drinking water** by March 2022 must be registered in the Chestny Znak system and describe their products in the Nacionalnyy Catalog. By this time, the processes for ordering and payment for codes, as well as code application on the package, and introduction to the market, including report, should be fully implemented. The turnover of non-serialized drinking water becomes illegal on March 1, 2022.

September 1, 2022 – mandatory reporting to the serialization system on the retail sale of serialized packaged water

Retail stores that sell any packaged drinking water must start scanning codes and report sales information via cash registers. By this time, sales processes must be tested, 2D scanners must be available at cash registers, cash register software should be upgraded if necessary.

November 1, 2022 – mandatory volume and article reporting on the turnover of serialized packaged water

Manufacturers, importers, wholesalers, and retailers need to use electronic document flow when dispatching and receiving goods. Participants should choose an EDI operator, implement, configure and test electronic document flow with other parties. It must report information about the batches of goods to the marking system: the product code and the quantity of the marked goods to be shipped, without specifying the codes that are being moved between them.

March 1, 2025 – item reporting on the turnover of serialized packaged water

Manufacturers, importers, wholesalers, and retailers need to use electronic document flow when dispatching and receiving goods. Participants should choose an EDI operator, implement, configure and test electronic document flow with other parties. It must report to Chestny Znak / CRPT information about each serialized item.

* products with HS codes 2201, including 2201 10, OKPD 2 11.07.11.110

** products with HS codes 2201, including 2201 90 000 0, OKPD 2 11.07.11.120, 11.07.11.130, 11.07.11.140

Russian Track&Trace regulations for the bottled water market

1

The manufacturer places an order for unique serial numbers with crypto codes for each produced trade item (SKU) based on the production plan. The serial numbers and crypto codes are emitted by the OMS CRPT system.

2

These serial numbers are encoded to Data Matrix codes and applied to individual consumer packages. This process makes them serialized. The packages are placed into cases and other forms of containers - then further aggregated into pallets. Each level of a container is labeled with a unique SSCC of GS1-128 codes assigned by the manufacturer. Codes are associated in a parent/child structure.

3

Each applied code and the hierarchical structure is stored in the private repository. It is then further reported to OMS and GIS MT systems, along with additional attributes, such as expiry date.

4

After the end of the production of a batch and the quality control procedure, the serialized packages are reported to GIS MT as available for further sale.

5

At any given point in the supply chain, the product aggregation can change. When this happens it is reflected in the repository and reported to GIS MT. Likewise, products can be written-off for various reasons, such as damages, expiration, shortages, etc.

6

After the serialized goods are packed in cases and pallets, they are dispatched from the manufacturer to the next supply chain partner. Each serialized container is scanned and the unique codes are included in a Universal Transfer Document (UTD).

7

The UTD is sent to a certified EDI provider, which is then forwarded to the receiver of the shipment.

8

When receiving a serialized shipment, the wholesaler scans each serialized container to verify it against the inbound UTD. Any discrepancies are resolved by additional EDI documents, such as UCD. Once the UTD is electronically signed by the receiver, the change of ownership occurs. Lastly, the information is pushed to GIS MT.

9

Finally, when the serialized package is sold at a retail store to the end-consumer, the Data Matrix is scanned at the POS. The unique serial numbers are included in the electronic cash receipt, which is sent via a Fiscal Data Operator to GIS MT.

10

Any consumer can scan a DataMatrix code with a phone App to verify the authenticity of the product and learn more about its origin.

Russian Track&Trace regulations for the bottled water import

1

The importer places an order for unique serial numbers with crypto codes for each produced trade item (SKU) based on the production/purchase plan. The serial numbers and crypto codes are emitted by the OMS CRPT.

2

These serial numbers are passed to the factory, where they are encoded to Data Matrix codes. This is then applied to individual consumer packages at the packaging line, thus making them serialized. The packages are placed into cases and other forms of containers and further aggregated into pallets. Each level of the container is labeled with a unique SSCC of GS1-128 codes assigned by the manufacturer. Codes are associated in a parent/child structure.

3

Each applied code and the hierarchical structure are stored in the private repository and further reported by the importer to OMS and GIS MT systems. Other additional attributes, such as the expiry date, are also prevalent.

4

Alternatively, the serialization process can take place at a warehouse outside Russia or at the customs warehouse. The full hierarchy has to be reported to GIS MT before the shipment can be customs-cleared.

5

The importer, or the customs broker, submits a customs declaration (GTD) to the Federal Customs Service.  The GTD includes a list of unique container codes. The Federal Customs Service verifies the codes with GIS MT and clears the shipment.

6

In order to make the products available for further sale, the importer reports the unique container codes to GIS MT.

7

At any given point in the supply chain, the product aggregation can change. When this happens, it is reflected in the repository and reported to GIS MT. Likewise, products can be written-off for various reasons, such as damages, expiration, shortages, etc.

8

After the serialized goods are packed in cases and pallets, they are dispatched from the importer to the next supply chain partner. Each serialized container is scanned and the unique codes are included in a Universal Transfer Document (UTD).

9

The UTD is sent to a certified EDI provider, which is then forwarded to the receiver of the shipment.
