incomplete, applies to the list of pharmaceuticals set out in the Decree of the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Uzbekistan No. 737 dated 20.11.2020 “On the introduction of the system of mandatory digital serialization for certain types of goods”. The list of transactions with pharmaceuticals that will be subject to mandatory data disclosure with the ASL BELGISI will be expanded at a later date.

Pharma serialization in Uzbekistan
Reporting process
For local manufacturers
  • Order of the DataMatrix codes
    The manufacturer orders unique serial numbers with each unit crypto-coded in accordance with the production plan via OMS in the NIS MPT.
    1
  • Utilization of DataMatrix codes
    If serialization is done in the course of production, the serial numbers are coded in the DataMatrix format with a view to subsequently applying them to individual consumer packaging. At the end of production data on the completion of this stage are transferred to OMS.
    2
  • Aggregation (mandatory from June’ 01’ 2023)
    Units are aggregated into factory or transportation packings which are then aggregated to pallets. Each aggregation is assigned a unique code SSCC GS1-128 by the manufacturer; codes comprise hierarchies. Each DataMatrix code with a hierarchical structure is saved in a private repository and is transferred to OMS.
    3
  • Release into circulation
    When the goods are manufactured, and quality control procedure is over the manufacturer uploads to the NIS MPT the information about serialized goods release into circulation.
    4
  • Dispatch to a new owner
    Each serialized package is scanned, the unique codes are transferred to an electronic invoice (EDI) operator. The NIS MPT receives from the EDI operator information on the transfer of title to the goods along with the codes. In the course of acceptance of the serialized goods receiver scan each transportation unit or packing in order to verify that it corresponds to the one entered into the incoming UTD. Title is transferred after the execution of the UTD. The title transfer is registered with the NIS MPT.
    5
  • Withdrawal from circulation
    As the serialized packings are sold in retail stores, the DataMatrix code is scanned for the consumer, the unique serial numbers are entered into the electronic cash receipt, subject to subsequent transfer to the NIS MPT via a fiscal data operator.
    6
  • Inspection of the product by the end consumer
    Any consumer may scan the DataMatrix code via a mobile app called ASL Belgisi in order to check the authenticity of the product and to learn more about its origin.

Reporting process
For importers
  • Order of the DataMatrix codes
    The importer / representative of the manufacturer orders unique serial numbers crypto-coded for each unit in accordance with the production plan. The serial numbers and crypto-codes are ordered through the OMS. Further, ordered serial numbers are transferred to the manufacturer for products serialization.
    1
  • Utilization of DataMatrix codes
    If serialization is done in the course of production, the serial numbers are coded in the DataMatrix format with a view to subsequently applying them to individual consumer packaging. At the end of production data on the completion of this stage are transferred to OMS.
    2
  • Aggregation (mandatory from June 01’ 2023)
    Units can be aggregated into factory or transportation packings which are then put onto pallets. Each aggregation is assigned a unique code SSCC GS1-128 by the manufacturer; codes comprise hierarchies. Each DataMatrix code with a hierarchical structure is saved in a private repository and is transferred to OMS.
    3
  • Serialization at the Customs Warehouses
    Serialization and aggregation can also occur at a Customs Warehouse. The complete code hierarchy must be uploaded to the IS MPT before the goods are cleared through the customs.
    4
  • Imports
    The importer or a customs broker applies a freight customs declaration (FCD) to the State customs committee of the Republic of Uzbekistan, that, in turn, clears the goods and authorizes the imports of the goods into Uzbekistan. After the serialized goods pass through customs the importer upload a specialized report to the NIS MTP, which constitutes product release into circulation.
    5
  • Dispatch to a new owner
    Each serialized package is scanned, the unique codes are transferred to an electronic invoice (EDI) operator. The NIS MPT receives from the EDI operator information on the transfer of title to the goods along with the codes. In the course of acceptance of the serialized goods receiver scan each transportation unit or packing in order to verify that it corresponds to the one entered into the incoming UTD. Title is transferred after the execution of the UTD. The title transfer is registered with the NIS MPT.
    6
  • Withdrawal from circulation (mandatory from 2023)
    As the serialized packages are sold in retail stores, the DataMatrix code is scanned for the consumer, the unique serial numbers are entered into the electronic cash receipt, subject to subsequent transfer to the NIS MPT via a fiscal data operator. It is also possible that the goods may be withdrawn as they move down the supply chain due to damage, expiration, destruction etc. All the relevant changes are entered into the repository and are uploaded to the NIS MPT.

  • Inspection of the goods by the end consumer
    Any consumer may scan the DataMatrix code via a mobile app called ASL Belgisi in order to check the authenticity of the product and to learn more about its origin.
