Artisan Shoes and Fragrance Samples Excluded from the List of Goods Liable to Compulsory Marking

Government Decree No. 1973-p of July 28, 2020 excludes the following types of goods from the list of goods subject to mandatory marking in Russia:

  • footwear, which is identified by the legislation of the Russian Federation's constituent entities as a product of craftsmanship
  • fragrance testers, which are not intended for sale directly to the consumer, and perfume samples up to 3 ml, which are designed for sale.

Requirements for other types of footwear and perfumery remain unchanged.

Background: The system of marking codes was first introduced in Russia in 2016. Its complete implementation is scheduled for 2024. A unique code indicates the authenticity of the product and its compliance with the claimed quality. It allows the buyer to track & trace the entire path of the goods from the manufacturer or importer to the end consumer.
