Product serialization and
Track & Trace
in Russia

Mandatory serialization of goods

Serialization is the marking of products with unique serial numbers encoded in the form of machine-readable matrix codes. These codes allow one to track the products throughout an entire supply chain (from production, through distribution, and to selling to customers at the point of sale). Serialization helps prevent counterfeiting as it allows one to identify every product – the scanning of the codes reveals such information as a product's unique serial number, shelf life, batch number and logistic route.

By 2024, serialization will become mandatory for all consumer goods on the Russian market under the national digital marking program. The Russian market players will be obliged to register a product at each stage of its route, so that the product could be tracked from the manufacturer, throughout the logistic chain, and till the point of sale. To cope with this task, one needs special track & trace software. We have developed Utrace in order to help manufacturers, importers, distributors and retailers successfully transfer serialization data to the relevant state systems.

Our team consists of experts not only in technologies, but also in business processes in the pharmaceutical, food and light industries. We are well aware of the typical warehouse and logistic workflows, and we understand in-depth how retail and distribution work. We use trusted methodologies of serialization projects, proven workflows and ready-to-use integration schemes. We will help you understand the Russian legislation and find the optimum way to implement serialization for your products on the Russian market.

Serialization – fast, convenient, effective

Compliance with the law

Although the Russian national serialization program is still under development, it will clearly be one of the most complex of its kind in the world. That is why our software developers have been monitoring the updates in the legislation and promptly adjusting the software when necessary. We have been staying up-to-date as we participate in panel discussions on the matter and workgroups with the regulatory authorities on a regular basis.

Collaboration with your team

Everyone in the Utrace team speaks English, so we will have no problem getting on with your staff. We have been working with companies based outside Russia for more than 10 years. Utrace solutions are available both in English and Russian.

Preparation for validation

We provide a complete document package for both Russian and international audit, and are ready for validation according to the GAMP 5 standard.

Protection from unexpected events

In case of problems on the vendor's side, its clients are at risk to end up without product support and development, or even without the data. We have taken care of it as we work with an escrow service which receives the product copies of our software on a regular basis – it will serve as a warranty if need be.

Integration with other systems

Utrace supports many third-party ERP, WMS and T&T systems, increasing the number of pre-set integrations steadily. We reduce integration time by developing new connectors for the most common systems.

High quality standards

While developing Utrace, we were adhering to the EPCIS, GS1, and ISA-95 standards. Track-and-trace software is essential when it comes to the stability of sales and production, so the requirements to this software are very high:

  • Guaranteed fail-safe operation;
  • Integration with production and warehouse systems;
  • Detailed logging of all system events;
  • Maximum automation.

Utrace advantages

  • Integration with state systems according to specified rules. Should the state requirements change, we will update your software for free.
  • Suitable for different types of goods. Utrace suits different industries, providing the authentication and track & trace of dozens of millions product units per year.
