[Blog] Azerbaijan – in the process of introducing the Track & Trace system in 2024


According to the information from the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Azerbaijan, the national track and trace system “DVTIS” is expected to go live in 2024






In Q3 of 2023, Azerbaidjan announced that is working on the development of a national Track and Trace system – the Drug Persecution and Tracking System (DVTIS). The preparations for the use of the traceability system are still ongoing.

Project Timeline


Based on the information from the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Azerbaijan, the tracking of psychotropic drugs and potent medicines falls within the initial phase of the project. Furthermore, from 1st June will start the real-time monitoring of other medicines in the warehouses of all domestic manufacturers and wholesale pharmaceutical enterprises, as well as in medical institutions and pharmacies.


For the current moment, the main involved participants are:

  • All domestic manufacturers
  • Wholesale pharmaceutical enterprises
  • Medical institutions
  • Pharmacies

In November last year, it was organized a three-day training for the local manufacturers, representatives of wholesale pharmaceutical enterprises, representatives of pharmacies, and private medical institutions. The training was intended to demonstrate the subsystems (such as “QR code order”, “Production Notification”, “Import Notification”, “Transfer Notification”, and “Pharmacy Sales Notification”).
At the beginning of February, the Azerbaijani Ministry of Health organized a meeting with representatives of European pharmaceutical companies to discuss issues related to the use of the system, and to demonstrate the operation of the Drug Persecution and Tracking System (DVTIS) visually.

Track & Trace Requirements

The serialization requirements are for the application of QR codes on the secondary packaging of pharma products that include the following information:

  • GTIN
  • Batch/Lot
  • SN
