The Ministry of Digital Affairs of Russia proposes to optimize the procedure for including software products in the register of Russian software

The website of the Ministry of Digital Development, Communications and Mass Media of the Russian Federation (Ministry of Digital Development of Russia) published a message on the draft Resolution, which provides for the optimization of the procedure for including products in the register of Russian software. According to the authors of the project, the proposed changes will halve the period for consideration of applications, while eliminating the risk of inclusion in the register of products owned by foreign companies.

The project introduced the requirement for localization of software manufacturers. This means that the technical means necessary for the release, use, maintenance of products, as well as the source text and object code, must be located on the territory of the Russian Federation. In this case, the product must be freely sold throughout the country. The obvious exception to this rule is software developed for internal use by government, government and commercial companies.

It is important that the document assigns responsibility for the copyright holder to the implementation of the rights to the software. In particular, this applies to technical support and warranty service. The project says that the company applying must have the technical capabilities and the necessary qualifications of employees.

Certain changes are proposed to be introduced into the procedure for considering documents for the inclusion of products in the register. Thus, the project provides for the involvement of specialized expert organizations in the processing of applications.
