Russia - Procedure for FSS Notification Submissions
April 13, 2020
The Federal Security Service (FSS) introduced limitations on personal submission and issuance of original documents due to the coronavirus epidemic and preventative measures taken in Russia. Documents can be submitted only by postal services until the end of April. If the results of analysis are positive and FSS notification is registered, the original registered FSS notification will not be issued to the applicant until the end of the month.
According to preliminary information, issuance of original documents will be decided by FSS after April 30. As the information on every registered FSS notification is entered into the Unified Register, for the import of controlled products into the territory of the EAEU, Federal Security Service asks to use an entry from the Register or to provide the customs authorities with an extract from the Register.
Respectively, the copy of the registered FSS notification is not mandatory for the customs authorities and products can be supplied on the basis of information from the Unified Register.
