Operation "Excise-2015" in Transcarpathia: legalization of excisable goods market
Despite continuous control in the production and sale of excisable goods and legalization of the market of such product, the situation in this area in the country in general remains very tense.
Employees of the SFS in the region constantly reveal facts of sale of alcoholic beverages marked with counterfeit excise stamps, including those possibly manufactured at the production facilities of legal distilleries. In addition, the counterfeit production of excisable goods on equipment that ensures their mass production has become more active.
Offenders are developing new schemes and ways of illegal transportation of specified goods across the state border of Ukraine and their further circulation in the domestic market. Such illegal activities of criminals can harm life and health of citizens and also result in loss of the significant amount of the excise tax to the state budget.
Therefore, in order to enhance the effectiveness of measures to combat illicit manufacturing and trafficking of excisable goods, the operational department of the Main Office of SFS in Transcarpathian region activates control in this area as part of the operation "Excise-2015". In particular, the operation measures are aimed at prevention of distribution of counterfeit products that will enable to protect citizens from consumption of low-quality and often harmful products, and will increase revenues to the state budget from the sale of quality products.
