Cabinet postponed deadline for mandatory withdrawal of labeled dairy products through cash desks

by time news

Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin signed a decree establishing a new deadline for the withdrawal of labeled dairy products from circulation through cash registers. The deadline for preparing retail for mandatory withdrawal has been extended until March 31, 2022. It was previously planned that the requirement will come into force on March 31, 2022.

The digital labeling system, which began to apply to dairy products from June 1, allows product tracking at all stages of its movement along the supply chain. For this category of goods for stores, a transitional period is still in effect, during which they may not transmit to the system data on the withdrawal of goods from circulation when sold to consumers.

The decree also allows dairy producers from Kaliningrad not to indicate labeling codes when moving goods to the rest of Russia.

From December 1, digital labeling will become mandatory for goods with a shelf life of 40 days or less, and administrative liability will be introduced for violation of labeling requirements. In November, Izvestia reported that the Ministry of Agriculture had reported to the government about the risk of rising prices for dairy products, related, among other things, to labeling. Note that Mr. Mishustin proposed expanding the list of goods subject to mandatory labeling in the EAEU countries (Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan).
