Following conference on the subject, the Track & Trace Russia system operator CRPT has released a statement confirming that there is no intention of moving the serialization deadlines in Russia (October 1, 2019 for the 12 high-cost nosologies and January 1, 2020 for the rest of the medicinal products).

At the Global Track & Trace Russia conference, which took place in Moscow from June 24-26, Anton Kharitonov, Head of Pharma at CRPT, said in a speech that there ‘will be no delay in labeling medicines’. He urged pharmaceutical companies to register with the system and start testing the crypto codes.

Given the complexity of the Russian serialization requirements, the pharma industry was hoping for an extension of the deadlines as well as more clarification documents.
