Price tags for goods are carriers of information about the unit of production, its value. They are used in retail. Registration of price tags for the goods is carried out according to certain rules. Consider them.
Price tags for goods must contain a number of necessary information. For weight food products, the mandatory details are:
- Cost per kilogram or 100 grams.
Price tags for goods sold in bottling should contain information about:
- The name.
- Cost per unit capacity.
When selling piece goods and beverages, packaged by manufacturers in cans, boxes, bottles, bags and other containers, their name, weight, and cost of packaging are indicated. As for non-food products, the price tags for it should contain:
- Cost per kg, liter or 1 pc.
For small piece products (haberdashery, perfumery) only the price and name are indicated.The information indicated on the price list must be certified by the signature of the authorized person. At the same time, the existence of a contract establishing liability for an employee is obligatory. Supervisory authorities often request it for inspection. Responsibilities for registration of price tags are fixed in the job description of the employee.
Product price tags may contain additional information. Their volume depends on the specifics of the product itself and the requirements for one or another of its kind. The Law governing consumer protection establishes that the seller / manufacturer is obliged to provide the buyer with complete and accurate information about the products in order to ensure the possibility of the correct choice. If the price tag does not correspond to the product, then this can be considered as a violation of the established norms and may entail liability.
The name of the product is indicated in Russian. It must be the same as the name in the invoice. On the price tag is prohibited to indicate "in stock". The exception is when a similar word is present in the invoice.Change the name of the product is not allowed. The discrepancy of the price tag of the product is considered as a distortion of information or as an attempt to replace the product during its implementation.
The unit of measurement that is used to designate the price of a product must correspond to the indicators present in the incoming documents. The cost of production is indicated on the basis of the approved price list, which confirms its authenticity. Depending on the workflow of the enterprise, other local documents may be used to verify the validity of the price.
Date of preparation
It is usually indicated on the front. If the dates of registration of the price tag, drawing up the invoice and the capitalization of the products do not coincide, the fact of receipt of the goods at the enterprise is necessarily reflected according to the rules of internal document circulation. For example, an entry may be made in the product acceptance report. At the same time, the reasons for which it cannot be credited immediately are indicated. Experts also recommend specifying the actual date of receipt of the goods in the accompanying documentation.
His indication is mandatory for food products. The requirement to provide the buyer with information about the shelf life of products is established on the basis of the provisions of Federal Law No. 2300-1 (“On Protection of Consumer Rights”) and other regulatory documents. The obligation to indicate this information is fixed at the regional level. As a rule, the requirement to bring to the notice of the data about the expiration date, is made with some features of the labeling of a unit of production and the specifics of its implementation. In such cases, obtaining the necessary information by the buyer when it becomes familiar with the goods and their choice is substantially difficult. This situation, for example, occurs when selling dairy products through the counter.
