The special safety shoes marking can be called, without exaggeration, the eventof the year for the Russian PPE market. Starting the 1st of July, after the pilot project that lasted for 13 months, shoes marking with controlling and identification symbols has become an obligatory one in Russia, but its
introduction raised and still raises many questions. «It would be strange to expect that from the very beginning the system is an ideal one» – tells Mr. Kotov,
President of the Association of Designers, Manufacturers and Suppliers of Personal Protective Equipment. «It is a serious global project that has never been
implemented in the world, from scratch, on a vast territory, in such a complicated economy as our. The testing of the system will take some time. The first results of the obligatory safety shoes marking we plan to discuss at the exhibition “Safety and Labor Protection”.

According to Mr. Kotov, the Association of Designers, Manufacturers and Suppliers of Personal Protective Equipment took an active part in the work over the system of digital marking and tracking of shoes. The experts of the Association, during the experimental work, have found many practical inconsistencies, e.g. in the issues of marking the remains and the return of the production. Some of controversial points have been settled thanks to the efforts of the Association.

«There was a big discussion on who will be the participant of the turnover and at what stage to take the marked production away from the turnover. The Association managed to achieve that the goods removal is not the obligation of final consumers, final consumers have been taken away from the turnover. It will simplify our life to us, by us I mean, first of all, the companies that work on b2b market with individual protection, work shoes. If the consumers become the participants of the turnover, that would become absolutely another issue, as in this case each enterprise should be involved into the process and that is much more difficult», tells the head of the organization.

As far as the take away of the special shoes is concerned, that will be made, according to Mr. Kotov, on the basis of confirmed shipping documents. «Let’s say, the company X shipped the production to the factory Y. The factory hasreceived the production, confirmed it and accepted. There are completed documents and these documents are the reason the specialized shoes are taken away from theturnover» - tells the expert.

Meanwhile, the marking in Russia takes more and more products. According to Getsiz.ru, on the 27th of June started the pilot project for the clothes marking that will last till November 30 It is already known that two largest companies of the PPE market will join the experiment – “Vostok-Service” and “Technoavia”. According to Mr. Kotov, the discussion of the marking at BIOT-2019 will not be limited to shoes as the system of the turnover monitoring by 2024 will be complete and will involve all types of production, including protective equipment.
