Enforcement: New marking system to fight against counterfeiting


Komsomolskaya Pravda 


On 1 June 2017, the Department of Revenue and the Federal Service for Surveillance in Healthcare (Roszdravnadzor) launched a system to clean the drug market from counterfeits: in pharmacies, the customer will be able to scan any drug and check all its information value chain, thanks to a special mark stamped on it. This system, which costs RUB 630 million (USD 10.63 million), was previously successfully tested on fur coats and was almost instantly profitable: customs duties went up RUB 500 million (USD 8.43 million). According to experts, 1% to 15% of the drug market would be made up with counterfeits or damaged products.
