At the end of last year, amendments were made to the Law on the Protection of Consumer Rights, according to which, starting from 2021, a number of gadgets, when sold in Russia, will be subject to the requirement to have Russian software. The specific list of devices and software has not yet been approved, but preliminary provisions of the Law will affect the circulation of smartphones, tablets, computers and TVs with Smart-TV function.
The explanatory note to the bill noted the need to ensure the protection of the interests of Russian Internet companies by large foreign IT companies. According to the authors of the bill, the proposed legal mechanism will create conditions for Russian companies to promote their services and programs for domestic users.
It is obvious that the adoption of the relevant law is a consequence of the precedent created by the Federal Antimonopoly Service of the Russian Federation in the case against Google.
In this context, it becomes obvious that the suppliers and distributors of the above products, starting next year, will not be able to issue permits on the confirmation of conformity in the field of communications without complying with the requirements of the Law on Consumer Protection.
