Kazakhstan Launches App for Checking Alcoholic Drinks’ Authenticity

Jul 6 2020 - 14:17

The Kazakh National Information Technologies Agency (NITEC) recently launched a mobile application named e-Sapa, which can be used to verify the authenticity of all alcoholic beverages with excise stamps in Kazakhstan. The application was developed in collaboration with the Kazakh State Revenue Committee as part of the fight against the sale of illegal and counterfeit alcoholic drinks.

The e-Sapa app allows users to scan the barcode on the product’s control mark which indicates information about the product and its manufacturer. From its launch in December 2019 until June 2020, the e-Sapa app was used to check the authenticity of more than 5,000 alcoholic drinks in Kazakhstan.

The app is available for download in the App Store and on Google Play.
