FSS/FSB Notification in Russia or NSC Notification in Kazakhstan is a state documentary procedure on the fact that the products manufactured by the company contain various elements of cryptographic (encryption) nature. The notification is a prerequisite for import into the territory of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU).

Each country (which is part of the Eurasian Economic Union) has its own authorised body for registration of notifications, in particular

  • National Security Committee of the Republic of Kazakhstan (NSC RK) - Notification KZ

  • Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation (FSS RF) - Notification RU

  • State Security Committee of the Republic of Belarus (KGB RB) - Notification BY

Scope and products concerned

All types of devices the main features of which require encryption elements are subject to mandatory notification. Currently, this list includes 17 categories of products - see the excerpt from the decision of the EurAsEC Board of Directors of 21 April 2015 No. 30 "On non-tariff regulatory measures":

Market Launchnotification-FSB-CCIS-Expertise

Before placing encryption equipment on the Eurasian market, the manufacturer or his authorised representative shall:

  • Obtain notification

  • Register in a unified register of notifications in the Eurasian Union

  • Undertake to guarantee the invariance of the cryptographic characteristics

The documentation necessary for the notification can be provided by the manufacturers of encryption devices or by a legal entity having a duly executed written mandate/contract issued by the manufacturer. however, only a legal entity registered on the territory of the Eurasian Union can submit documents for the notification registration procedure.

The notification file must contain the following elements

    • Name of the product.

    • Product application.

    • Information about the manufacturer.

    • Cryptographic algorithms used.

    • Description of functionalities not described in the operational documentation provided to the user.

    • Period of validity of the notification (the period of validity is unlimited and is chosen by the applicant).

    • Information about the applicant.

    • Copy of the mandate/contract between the manufacturer and the applicant.

    • Date of registration of the notification.

We offer solutions for:

  • advice on product identification, design of the notification file;

  • drafting of the notification;

  • obtaining the notification;

  • Authorised Representative service (in Russia and Kazakhstan).

Notification registration time:

3 to 10 working days

Electrical appliances are often subject to the conformity assessment according to CU TR 004/2011 "On the safety of low voltage equipment" and CU TR 020/2011 "Electro-magnetic compatibility of equipment" which will also be required with the certificate of notification.
