At the partner webinar "Start of disposal of dairy products" Yakov Panferov, head of the commodity group, CATD, said that since January 20, 2022, there begins the first stage of disposal of dairy products through cash registers for the categories of ice cream and cheeses with an expiration date of less than 40 days, writes The DairyNews.

He explained that since this date, retail would need to transfer DataMatrix marking codes to the Honest mark system.

According to the speaker, more than 38 thousand participants in the turnover of dairy products, including more than 27 thousand retail companies, have already been registered in the system.

‘We see an increase in the number of manufacturers, whose share is 76% or about 3 thousand legal entities and individual entrepreneurs, 88% of importers or 400 organizations,’ he said. ‘For the participants of social budgetary institutions a separate role has been defined, which will soon appear in the system and separate statistics will be maintained.

The expert clarified that 2021 was aimed at introducing labeling for dairy products of different categories and different shelf life. There is still a postponement for peasant farm holdings and agricultural production cooperatives and they will join the labeling since December 1, 2022.

‘Since the new year, retail has been connected to labeling. According to the Government decree, a new date has appeared — since March 31, 2022, the mandatory sale of cheeses and other labeled dairy products with a shelf life of less than 40 days is introduced through cash register equipment. That is, its mandatory scanning begins at retail at the checkout. And since June 1, 2022, as it was established earlier, the disposal of dairy products with a long shelf life in retail sales begins,’ the speaker explained.


He reminded of the roadmap, according to which volume and grade accounting will start on September 1, 2022 with a completion date of November 30, 2023. Its essence is that all participants in the circulaion of dairy products should switch to electronic document management and indicate there the GTIN, as well as the number of goods that are moved within the framework of the EPD delivery. Since December 1, 2023, an instance accounting is introduced for products with an expiration date of more than 40 days. For products with a short shelf life, it does not occur, since volume and grade accounting is in effect.

Separately, the head drew attention to the system of fines for violation of labeling rules, which became tougher after the amendments to Article 15.12 of the Administrative Code of the Russian Federation came into force on December 1, 2021. So, for example, the sale of unlabeled goods produced after the date specified in regulatory documents, or the sale with fake labeling codes, the absence of registration in the Honest mark system, the sale of products without putting into circulation can cost an individual from 5 thousand to 300 thousand rubles, a legal entity - from 50 thousand to 1 million rubles, including imprisonment.
