2019: Marking of footwear and business: future changes

Since July 1, 2019 registration of participants of turnover of shoe goods in the Fair Sign system (TsRPT) began. As well as in a case with tobacco, in this market segment marking will be gradually implemented. Representatives of the fiscal data operator of told on July 11, 2019 TAdviser about perspectives of an innovation and changes which expect business in the nearest future.

Footwear became already the third type of goods (after products from fur and tobacco) which are subject to obligatory marking. Entrepreneurs need to be registered in the Fair Sign system (TsRPT) as turnover of unmarked shoe goods will be prohibited since March 1, 2020.

Since October 1, 2019 TsRPT will provide to business access to devices of registration of issue of codes of marking — voluntary marking of footwear and transfer of data in a monitoring system will begin. The cost of the code of marking is approved by order of the Government of the Russian Federation No. 577 of May 8, 2019 and will be 50 kopeks excluding VAT. At input in turnover means of identification in the form of the Data Matrix code will be applied on shoe goods. Unlike tobacco products, the code can be applied not only on consumer packaging, but also on a commodity label, the label of shoe goods or on goods.

Upon transition of goods on a chain "producer-distributor-retail" exchange of documents between participants happens to use of electronic document management systems (e-document flow). Not to transfer hundreds of codes in one document it is possible to use aggregation of codes of identification of goods in transport packaging and transfer to the system of codes of transport packaging. Transfer of data on retail sale to the end buyer happens by means of the cash register equipment when forming the cash voucher — information is sent to the fiscal data operator, and it already transfers her in TsRPT, explained in

In what cases does business need to receive codes of marking for footwear and to introduce them into circulation?

  • 1. By production of new footwear — the code is put before shipment from the territory of production
  • 2. When importing footwear on the territory of the Russian Federation
  • 3. When importing footwear from the territory of the Eurasian Economic Union — before import to the territory of the Russian Federation
  • 4. When importing from other countries — before passing of customs procedures
  • 5. At return of footwear from the buyer with the lost code of marking
  • 6. When marking stock balance of footwear or remarking — for example, in case of loss of the label with the code
  • 7. Acceptance of footwear on the commission from individuals

ATOL and OFD Platform prepared the systems for marking of footwear

Since July, 2019 there will be obligatory a marking of shoe products. The companies ATOL, TSRPT and "OFD platform" tested the systems of acceptance, processing and transfer two-dimensional barcodes in the cash voucher. The made experiment showed complete readiness of the companies for work with codes identifications of the next generation, reported on December 25, 2018 in ATOL company.

Changes in marking appeared as a result of entry into force of Order of the Government of the Russian Federation No. 620 of 5/30/2018 which obliges producers and importers of footwear to apply the Data Matrix codes on packaging or on a commodity label.

According to representatives of ATOL, marking allows to fix transition of goods from the owner to the owner that does the market transparent both for participants, and for end consumers. Through such codes it is possible to trace all way of each pair of shoes — from its production before purchase.

For preparation of the market for changes, "Center of Development of Perspective Technologies" (CDPT) initiated a pilot project. Several producers of footwear, the cash equipment, the fiscal data operator and the operator of a system of goods marking took part in it.

During the experiment the main attention was paid to a fabrication cycle of check, interpretation and reconciliation of the digital code of marking at all stages of a logistic chain. Information on each specific pair of shoes is successfully transferred by the cash equipment of ATOL on all electronic document management systems as at receipt, and sales of goods.

Our purpose — to prepare the equipment and solutions ATOL for all changes, and to make it within set terms and conditions of introduction of obligatory marking. We actively work with market participants and operator of a system, TsRPT company — Igor Vaag, the area director of marking of ATOL reported.

Producers, importers, wholesale companies and retail networks participate in a pilot project on marking of shoe goods the digital Data Matrix codes. The traceability of an output from turnover of the marked shoe goods requires also active participation of fiscal data operators. The results received during a pilot project allowed to determine effective parameters of means of identification, methods of its drawing and accounting to the system of marking that allows to counteract illicit trafficking in shoe goods — Vera Volkova, the manager of projects of TsRPT noted.

The system of marking and tracing of goods will shortly concern a considerable part of the Russian retail. Our task as fiscal data operator to provide to retail necessary service, to give instruments of work with a new system and data, to automate business processes for convenience of use of this functionality. We systematically develop our solutions, considering terms and conditions of introduction of obligatory marking — Alexey Barov, the CEO OFD Platform emphasized.

Marking system testing in Zenden

The Russian shoe retail network Zenden received the first digital code which will be applied on a shoe box and will go to shelves of the Moscow shops, reported on August 30, 2018 in the Center of development of perspective technologies.

A system fixes transition of goods from the owner to the owner at each stage of a logistic chain that makes impossible a counterfeit throw.

We took very important step in marking, having installed in the territory of our headquarters in Moscow the special logger of issue and a control station tasks. Our command successfully made printing of the first code for its further drawing on finished goods. An event, certainly, sign both for us, and for the market — the director of Zenden Group communications Alexander Milykh said.
