Russian Regulations: Serialization and aggregation


National Regulations about Russia Serialization have pursued the need for stricter drug tracking regulations, in order to counter the risk of counterfeiting, illegally imported or stolen drugs. A complete Track & Trace process, including serialization and aggregation, represents the best possible control because it even tells the whole history of a given product, from the manufacturer to the point of dispensing, giving the greatest transparency to all the supply chain.
Aggregation impacts serialization projects on the packaging lines throughout manufacturers’ operations and the overall supply chain. It provides any company involved in pharmaceutical packaging  the ability to build a serialized relationship among different chain phases.

Russian serialization requirements


Russian latest serialization regulations allowed pharma companies to complete unit and batch level traceability untill 2020. Metapack has already implemented these regulations for its serialization and aggregation systems.
Russian serialization requires a 2D barcode on all individual units, with a GTIN, serial number, batch number, expiration date. In addition, Russian serialization also requires a Foreign Economic Activity Common Nomenclature (FEACN) code encoded on all 2D barcodes. Russian serialization will be centralized through a database called Federal State Information System for Monitoring Drug Circulation (FSIS MDC). Manufacturers will be expected to onboard the FSIS MDC and report all serial numbers and batch numbers to the centralized system.


Russian agreggation requirements


Under Russian serialization requirements  there is also a heavy emphasis on aggregation. Russia will be one of the few countries in the world where the aggregation of pharmaceutical products for tracking purposes is required.

Why Serialization and Aggregation?


Packaging aggregation is a key element for tracking purposes of serialized productions, already mandatory in many legislations for pharma production and effective for any safe logistic chain.
Establishing parent-child relationship of packed products at various levels, such as bundle, shipping box or pallet, begins at the production line and it can be accomplished in different ways according to the automation level. Within our T&T range of solutions, Metapack can supply aggregation systems to be integrated on board bundle machines, case packers and palletisers, as well as semi-manual or manual systems, for each specific situation.


Most of our systems are for the pharmaceutical packaging processes.
Serialization solutions, product inspection and counting, digital printing on foils among our top solutions for pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries.

Print and inspection as one only process: Veri Code Software,  developed by Metapack, allows to manage any aspect of the print and camera set-up from the same HMI, regardless of the specific printing system adopted. The VeriCode systems are ready for serialization and communication with higher level software management modules or IT infastructures.
