1.Intro


Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan are two large countries located in Central Asia with 19 and 36 million inhabitants respectively.

Like a many other countries, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan have launched a government  serialization program to fight counterfeit and illegal medicines.

In 2023, in both of these countries, this program entered the final phase. All manufacturers and distributors must adapt their information systems to new government requirements.

For companies with SAP Landscape, using SAP ATTP with Add-ons for this purpose is a coherent step. This blog-posts consists from two parts - part I about  compliance in Uzbekistan, part II about compliance in Kazakhstan.


2.Compliance deadline


Uzbekistan:


  • Phase 1: May, 2022: Initial preparation for complying with the regulation


  • Phase 2: July, 2022: Focusing on serialization readiness


  • Phase 3: Sep, 2022: Serialization with crypto codes to be mandatory


  • Phase 4: May 2023: Aggregation and aggregation reporting to be mandatory


 

3.GS1 Standards


Government serialization in Uzbekistan based on GS1 Standards

Small overview:


3.1. GS1 Identification Standards: GTIN, SSCC, GLN, GCP [1]


GTIN:

GTIN is an identifier for trade items. Such identifiers are used to look up product information in a database (often by entering the number through a barcode scanner pointed at an actual product) which may belong to a retailer, manufacturer, collector, researcher, or other entity. The uniqueness and universality of the identifier is useful in establishing which product in one database corresponds to which product in another database, especially across organizational boundaries


SSCC (Serial shipping container code):

The Serial Shipping Container Code (SSCC) is an 18-digit number used to identify logistics units. In order to automate the reading process, the SSCC is often encoded in a barcode, generally GS1-128, and can also be encoded in an RFID tag. It is used in electronic commerce transactions. The SSCC comprises an extension digit, a GS1 company prefix, a serial reference, and a check digit. It is all numeric. It is applicable to the tertiary level of packing.


GLN (The Global Location Number):

GLN is part of the GS1 systems of standards.

The GLN is used to identify physical locations or legal entities. The key comprises a GS1 Company Prefix, Location Reference, and Check Digit


When a company joins GS1 it is normally given a number called a Global Company Prefix (GCP). A GCP is a unique number that can then be used as a base by the company to generate unique identification numbers for products (GTIN), shipments (SSCC), locations (GLN) and more.

3.2. GS1 Data Capture Standards: GS1 Data Matrix



On author's photo: Data Matrix on drug package.

 
DataMatrix on drug packs for Uzbekistan market must consists:

GS1 Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) (14 digit) - AI (01)

Serial Number (13 digit) - AI (21)

Verification key (4 digit) - AI (91)

Verification code (44 digit) - AI (92)


On our example:


(01)04750232014417(21)02007SNTW8V50(91)EE07(92)/wocCK9s/NSRAxQh/3zPPfLEVVTub+ogphCLW4N30M=


GTIN:  04750232014417

Serial number: 02007SNTW8V50

Crypto-Code (Verification key + Verification Code): )EE07 + /wocCK9s/NSRAxQh/3zPPfLEVVTub+ogphCLW4N30M=



4. Asl Belgisi. National Track & Trace Digital System


Asl Belgisi is the national system of labeling and trace ability of goods, which is largely used by participants in the commodities turnover [2]

A key part of the National T&T Digital System: web-site and mobile app [2]

Registration and receiving of E-imzo [8] digital signature a mandatory.

7.Uzbekistan Connector for ATTP in details. Configuration.


7.1. Basis configuration. Prerequisite

   The DigiCert Global Root CA certificate should be added to the SSL client (Anonymous) in the transaction STRUST.  You can download it from attachments of Note #2631190 [5]





Parameter icm/HTTPS/client_sni_enabled with value TRUE shall be set in transaction RZ10 [6]

The corporate firewall, proxy, gateway, etc. should allow outbound HTTPS connection from ATTP to the Uzbekistan OMS.

Route from SAP ATTP server to  https://omscloud.stage.aslbelgisi.uz (port: 443) for QAS and DEV systems

from SAP ATTP server to https://omscloud.aslbelgisi.uz (port: 443) for

 PROD system.


7.2. Basis configuration. HTTP destination

Transaction - SM59

Create a new destination: OMS_UZ

Connection Type: G – HTTP Connection to External Server

URL: https://omscloud.stage.aslbelgisi.uz (port: 443) for QAS and DEV systems

from SAP ATTP server to https://omscloud.aslbelgisi.uz (port: 443) for



7.3. Functional configuration

A lot of functional configuration mandatory

New system in transaction  /STTP/COCKPIT

OMS Identifier in transaction in /STTP/RU_SAFESTORAGE

and specific customizing in transaction in /STTP/CUSTGEN, etc

More information in 3keys Confluence [7]


8. Business scenario.


When Basis and Functional configuration are completed.

Time to real business scenario. From production to shipment to distributors.


Step 1. GTIN registered in Asl Belgisi digital system

Step 2. Crypto Codes received from OMS

Result referred in  transaction - /STTP/SNR_CRYPTO

Step 3. Codes are printed on drug packs as a DataMatrix

Step 4. In S/4HANA created outbound delivery and distributed from S/4HANA to SAP EWM and SAP ATTP

Step 5. In SAP EWM outbound delivery was picking and shipping

Step 6. Event OBSERVE and  "012 - loading" triggered from EWM to ATTP
