I. Draft law on the introduction of mandatory labelling of beer will allow, according to its developers, to solve the problem of illegal production of beer and beer products, announced at a press conference in MIA «Russia today» President, National Union of consumer protection Paul Shapkin.

According to Shapkina, the bill will introduce in the near future the state Duma Deputy Gennady Onishchenko.

«This bill solves the problem of illegal production of beer and beer products, including, pseudopanel products. The budget will additionally receive about 50 billion rubles from the introduction of labelling. Sold a lot of counterfeit under the guise of beer — every 20th bottle of beer drinks produced legally,» said Shapkin.

In turn, the President of the Union of producers of barley, malt, hops, beer and soft drinks Alexander Mordovin believes that the adoption of this bill is premature.

«As for excise stamps… the mechanism itself of excise stamps is not a guarantee of achieving the objectives pursued by the bill, that is, the excise on beer will not contribute to the «whitewashing» of the market. Focusing on the position of the enterprises included in our Union, we believe that to introduce a brand in a situation until we understand the results and outcomes of the introduction of system EGAIS concerning brewing products, is premature. I would wait at least two years,» said Mordovin.

In his opinion, must await at least the outcome of the 2018 introduction of the unified state automated information system, «and then, in General, will be clear further legislative position in relation to the beer market». He also believes that the introduction of such measures could negatively affect small business, because he will have to bear the costs of labeling products.
