Pharmacy chains will begin to block sales of illegal and expired medicines through Chestny Znak – Rossiyskaya Gazeta

To control the sale of drugs, technology had to be expanded. Marking codes when receiving batches of medicines in warehouses will be additionally verified through the specially developed functionality of “Honest Sign” so that expired or expired medicines, as well as illegal drugs, do not end up on the shelves of pharmacies.

The second stage is a new check on the pharmacy’s inventory system at the retail stage. By scanning the label, the pharmacy information system will refer to the “Honest Sign” and receive information about the product. If an attempt is made to reuse the labeling code or the medication expires, the system will not allow the boxed product to be punched and sold.

“The technology is being implemented in two pharmacy chains, with a total of more than 1,900 pharmacies, which are visited by thousands of citizens every day. The declared quality and originality of medicines must be an axiom, which is why we are fully interested in implementing a sales control system in all our boxes. We will begin to implement the new technology from Moscow. The locking system at checkouts is planned to start working before April 2024, “said Alexei Eferov, CIO of one of the pharmacy chains.

The labeling system now automatically detects violations related to the sale of expired medicines. However, without cooperation with pharmacy chains, it is impossible to avoid these sales. The proposed mechanism will help solve the problem and strengthen control over the sale of counterfeit medicines and the sale of illegally introduced medicines into circulation.

“For us, the initiative of market participants in the fight against illegal trafficking and their desire to optimize business processes using tagging capabilities is very important. The sales block system has already been successfully tested in pharmaceuticals. I would like to note that the new The mechanism will not affect the cost of drugs and will not slow down the sales process: the speed of information exchange between cash registers and Chestny Znak takes seconds, and the introduction of innovation will require only minor improvements in the accounting systems of the pharmacy chain, “said Egor Zhavoronkov, head of the pharmaceuticals group of the Central Regional Development Center.
