Ministry of Digital Development, Communications and Mass Media of the Russian Federation (Ministry of Digital Development of Russia) announced on amending the procedure for including products in the register of domestic software. The changes made it possible to significantly speed up the processing of applications from software developers.
In particular, it is reported that the period for consideration of applications for inclusion in the register has been reduced by more than two times – from now on it is 25 working days, and if additional information is required, it can be increased to no more than 45 working days. “The innovation became possible due to the involvement of a specialized expert organization in the assessment of documents submitted by applicants”, – stated in the statement of the department.
In addition, the Ministry of Digital Industry of Russia increased the number of representatives of associations of software developers in the expert council. If the software solutions are found to be inconsistent with the legal requirements, an additional check can now be initiated, which will minimize the likelihood of inclusion in the register of products belonging to foreign companies.
The register of domestic software has been maintained by the Russian Ministry of Digital Science since 2016. At the moment, the list is being formed by the department registered 11 thousand products, divided into classes according to their functionality. These are operating systems, office applications, search tools, analytics and data protection, various utilities, server and middleware software, development, testing and debugging environments, enterprise management tools, and other solutions. According to the ministry, more than 500 applications from software developers are submitted to the register every month.
