Russian FSS notification (Federal Security Service notification)

is the notice obligatory for the registration of programs or hardware devices used for enciphering and as a means of cryptography according to the section 2.19 of the Uniform inventory, to which a ban or restrictions on import or export by member states of the Customs Union within the Eurasian Economic Community in trade with the third countries are applied. The FSS notification is necessary for various computers and computing equipment with encryption functions (cryptography):
  • Printers, copiers & electronic modules;
  • Pocket machines & mobile phones;
  • Cash registers;
  • Servers & portable computers;
  • Electronic modules & parts;
  • Electronic integrated circuits & memory devices;
  • Software encryption (cryptographic) means.

The Federal Security Service notification is also necessary for wired and wireless means of communication with encryption functions:
  • User communication devices;
  • Base stations & access points;
  • Telecommunications equipment & parts;
  • Radio-broadcasting or television equipment;
  • Radionavigation receivers & remote control equipment;
  • Equipment for access to the Internet & television receivers with a communication function.

In some cases, FSS notification is not obligatory; such cases belong to exceptions of the general order. Cases of the import of computer facilities in which all cryptographic functions are realized by a program, without preset software, belong to these exceptions. Federal Security Service notification in this case shall be executed on the cryptographic software.

In addition, FSS notification is not necessary for means of communication with transparent encoding of information that does not require knowledge of the secret key to decode it. It is also not necessary to register a new notification for goods that have previously been registered for Federal Security Service notification - for the legal import of such goods, it is enough to specify information about the previously registered FSS notification.

The provisions of international agreements take precedence over the relevant Russian laws and regulations do not supersede national legislation in this area. Therefore, the Federal Security Service notification is usually not the only necessary permit. According to international or national legislation, the Russian EAC certificate, the Russian CCC certificate, the Russian RFC certificate or a Russian EAC license can be demanded in addition.
