Russian FSB notification (Federal Security Bureau notification)

. The international legislation of the Customs Union provides for the restriction of special equipment, including products with encryption or cryptography. For the legal import of such goods into the Russian Federation, a notification or another authorizing document from the authorized state body is required.

The complete list of commodity categories for whose import notification is necessary for customs is provided in 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. According to this document, among other goods of civil appointment, FSB notification is required for the import of various electronic modules and computers, wired and wireless means of communication. Federal Security Bureau notification is also required for the import of software containing encryption (cryptographic) equipment, regardless of media.



FSB notifications on goods containing means of enciphering and cryptography in the Russian Federation are registered by the Federal security service. The federal security service keeps account of means of encryption, registers notifications on goods and carries out data exchange with customs. The Federal Security Bureau notification for the import of goods is made out for any term. Obtaining notification for the import of goods is made out on the basis of a statement of the manufacturer or the Russian legal entity authorized to carry out the functions of the manufacturer.

Document title:Russian FSB notification
Maximum term of validity:no limits
Document required for:customs clearance, realization
Document is issued to:manufacturer or authorized entity
Tax:no


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 Bureau 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.

Hey, We are an integrator. We purchase cellular routers from a manufacturer in Europe. They send the units to the United States, where we configure them and send them to our client in Russia. We are being told the FSS Notification is needed in order to ship this way. Do we have to have the cellular router vendor file for this notification? I would think that we, the integrator, or our client in Russia would be considered the authorized representative. We have the EAC certificate for the device, from the manufacturer, is anything else needed? How long would the process take to get this done?

Hello, I would need to encrypt C drive on corporate laptops as this is a part of our company security policy but as Encryption is forbidden in Russia obviously laptops and desk computers are coming without TPM. Would you please be so kind to expalin what are the possiblities ? Thank you! Nataly
Natly 8/3/2017 10:45:13 PM
Hello Nataly,
In Russia encryption is not forbidden, you just need to declare the encryption functions of the TPM (notify the FSS).
C drive (HDD, SSD) could be encrypted without TPM (FDE technology on ThinkPad or BitLocker in MS Windows).
