Label service for Russia

If you are exporting to Russia, you probably know all about Russia’s new law, obligating certain products to have the individual honest digital mark. The digital individual mark should be placed on each piece which is sold in Russia. At the beginning of 2019, it was only tobacco. Slowly but certainly, more products were added to the list.
