While some countries are new to traceability, others have already implemented traceability and they even have expanded the use of traceability for more than one industry. As the Russian Federation, the Republic of Kazakhstan is among the countries that already recognize and also take action to implement pharmaceutical traceability in Kazakhstan.

As in the rest of the world, Kazakhstan is in the fight against counterfeiting in order to combat the informal economy and, more importantly, to protect the health of its citizens. The officials provide the most efficient support to this struggle and are preparing for practices of pharmaceutical traceability in Kazakhstan.

Actions in Kazakhstan Pharmaceutical Labeling

Product labeling was included in the directives published by the State of Kazakhstan in September 2015, so labeling applications are not new for them. In November of the same year, the Ministry of Health of Kazakhstan commissioned GS1 Kazakhstan to carry out the pharmaceutical traceability pilot project. After many successful tests, the Ministry of Health decided on 93 products for the first labeling application and gave the date as May 2022. However, the timeline was changed and announced as July 1, 2022! According to the latest announcement:

Requirements and conditions may cause a reorganization of the timeline as happened in many countries.

As it is known that, the industry has already gained experience with the pilot implementation of drug labeling in Kazakhstan, so there would not be any doubt that they will meet the expectations without any difficulty thanks to their innovations in the production processes.

On the other hand, there are some requirements for the implementation of pharmaceutical labeling and traceability systematically in Kazakhstan. Domestic and foreign manufacturers, distributors and importers who record the data in the Product Labeling and Traceability Information System (ISMET) will be the most important actors in ensuring pharmaceutical traceability in Kazakhstan. Importers have to make their notifications to the system before the products are included in the Kazakhstan market.
