From September 1, 2019 new rules of the national regime come into force when purchasing electronic products

Until September 1, 2019, the Ministry of Industry and Trade will form a unified register of Russian radio-electronic products. The information from the register will be applied when purchasing foreign goods, which the Government included in the list. The customer will be obliged to reject all applications with foreign goods if he receives at least two applications that are simultaneously:

– meet the requirements of notices and documentation;
– contain proposals for the supply of products from the registry;
– do not contain proposals for the supply of the same type of product from the same manufacturer.
To confirm that the product meets the requirements of the notice and documentation, the participant shall submit the number of the registry entry. It is necessary to provide a declaration that the products are in the register. Access restrictions are not established in four cases:
– in the register there are no products that correspond to the same class as the goods that are purchased;
– the products in the register do not meet the requirements for the characteristics that the customer has established.

It is impossible to buy products that are included in the register, and products that are not in the register, in one lot. When purchasing radio-electronic products from the register, the NMCC will calculate in the order that the Ministry of Industry and Trade will develop in agreement with the Ministry of Finance and the Federal Antimonopoly Service. The list of electronic products for which the national regime is applied has been set out in a new edition. The new rules will take effect on September 1, 2019. Until August 31, inclusive, customers continue to work according to the current Government Decree No. 968 of September 26, 2016. Innovations will affect customers under Law No. 223-FZ. When purchasing electronic products, preferences for goods from the registry will apply. For contests, requests, quotes and requests for offers of preferences are applied as follows: if a participant offers products from the register, his application is evaluated according to the cost criterion with a 30 percent reduction coefficient. At the auction, the privilege is applied in a different way: if a participant wins with products that are not in the register, they will conclude an agreement with him at a price 30 percent lower than what the participant offered. The changes will be made to the Government Decree of September 16, 2016 No. 925 from July 27, 2019. However, the registry will only be effective from September 1.
