Expansion of tobacco product marking rules

The Russian government has expanded the rules for marking tobacco and nicotine-containing products. Now, raw materials for the production of tobacco products are also subject to mandatory marking. The resolution on this was signed by the Prime Minister of the Russian Federation, Mikhail Mishustin.

Producers of raw materials for tobacco products will be required to provide data to the state monitoring system for marked goods. This will help improve traceability of both raw materials and the products themselves.

Most of the resolution’s provisions will come into force within 30 days.
