Polish Security Printing Works (PWPW) and the Ministry of Finance on Tuesday presented a new system of verification of product excise bands, which are expected to make it easier for consumers to verify the legality of products they buy.
Rzeczpospolita reported that alcohol producers are supporting the move, which is aimed at curbing illegal cigarette and alcohol sales.
The system will be accompanied by an online verification scheme, which will allow users to enter the serial number and year of production of the excise band in question and verify whether or not it was produced by PWPW.
