What is Russia Mandate?

From November 1, 2018, Russia’s serialisation was moved under the new leadership of a new operator CRPT. All functionalities of the systems built will remain the same so that the transition can be smooth.
This move was to take place after Government Decree No. 791-r and No. 792-r were published. The main highlight of this decree was the introduction of crypto-codes for each pair of product code and serial number. Even though in the above-mentioned decree Medical products were not included, in August, all these doubts were put to rest with the release of the Government Decree no. 1018, which confirmed the role of CRPT as the operator of Russia Serialisation (Markirovka) from November 1, 2018

In the Russian pharmaceutical serialization regulation, unlike EU or USA , drugs are not divided to prescription and OTC. They are divided into 3 groups:

  • 7VZN : The seven high-spending disease classes such as treatment of haemophilia or multiple sclerosis and patients after organ transplantation.
  • ZhNVLP : Vital and essential medicines. Subject to upper price limit set by the authorities.
  • All other medicines for human use.

Implementation Date for 7VZN – 01/07/2019 (*estimated)

Implementation Date for rest – 01/01/2020

Unique Identifier requirements: GS1 Unique Product code, Serial Number, 4 Digit Key (Commodity code), 88 Character signature, Batch/Expiry optional)
