Summary
The Center for Identification Systems offers consumers information system services for maintaining basic information about goods produced and sold on the territory of the Republic of Belarus for the purposes of automated accounting in commodity distribution networks and conducting e-commerce processes within under an outsourcing agreement and is looking for partners interested in a distribution services agreement.
Description
Bank of electronic passports of goods (ePASS) is an information system for maintaining basic information about goods produced and sold on the territory of the Republic of Belarus for the purposes of automated accounting in commodity distribution networks and conducting e-commerce processes.
ePASS ensures the formation and maintenance of a data bank containing descriptions of goods (products) produced and sold in the territory of the Republic of Belarus, compiled in accordance with international standards in the field of electronic commerce.

Detailed information about ePASS is available on the website www.epass.by. (in Russian)

ePASS integrates:
- with the depository of bar codes of the GS1 system of Belarus (owner - scientific and engineering republican unitary enterprise "Interindustry Scientific and Practical Center for Identification Systems and Electronic Business Transactions" of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus) in terms of obtaining names and identification codes of goods and e-commerce entities. The Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) assigned to a unit of goods (products) by the GS1 system of Belarus, which is part of the international GS1 system, is used as a product identifier. The Global Location Number (GLN) assigned by the GS1 system of Belarus is also used as an identifier of an e-commerce subject, intended to uniquely identify a registered user of the GS1 system of Belarus, its structural (technological) divisions or a certain set of data about user identification objects;
- with data banks of the national conformity assessment system of the Republic of Belarus (owner - State Committee for Standardization), as well as when creating the necessary organizational and technical conditions with international systems for confirming the safety and quality of goods (products), including those created within the Customs Union, in terms of obtaining information about the availability of documents confirming their safety and quality. The identifiers (numbers, validity periods and other details) of documents confirming the safety and quality of goods (products) valid in the relevant systems are used as identifiers of information objects;
- with a depository of bar codes of imported products;
- with international and foreign resources on product range and information systems operating on their basis.
Enterprises that have entered into a tripartite agreement for the provision of services of the GS1 system of Belarus in accordance with the Regulations on commodity numbering and bar coding of goods (products) in the Republic of Belarus, approved by Resolution of the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Belarus dated May 24, 2000 No. 748, receive access for the period of validity of the agreement via the Internet to the ePASS system. Access is granted to an authorized employee upon request (in Russian).

With the ePASS.MOBILe mobile application, information about goods from the ePASS database is now available to every consumer.

ePASS.MOBILe scans the bar code, accesses ePASS (Internet connection required), finds in it a product with the corresponding code, and displays basic information about the product.

ePASS.MOBILe displays the most frequently requested product description attributes.

The ePASS.MOBILe information mobile application is available for Android(in Russian) and iOS(in Russian) users.
Advantages and Innovations

Technical specification or expertise sought
A prerequisite for working with ePASS is that the user and his products have identifiers of the international system of open standards GS1:
* Global Location Number (GLN);
* The Global Trade Item Number (GTIN), commonly used as a barcode on an item.
