Russian FSS-Notification (Federal Security Service)

A FSS-Notification is not a certificate but a registration in Russian Federal Security Service.

It is a document which end-clients (and sometimes the Customs) in Russia are requesting

more and more often from their suppliers and producers.


Until now the FSS-Notification was necessary mainly for mobile-phones or telecommunication-

equipment. But in future, probably almost all devices, that transfer/receive encrypted data
have to be registered in FSS in form of a Notification.


Many types of equipment are now built with various transmitters and radio/Bluetooth/Wifi-
devices that transfer encrypted data.


For a FSS-Notification product-tests or company-visits are NOT necessary.

However, there has to be done some preparation-work, e.g. an Apostile-Authorization of the

applicant (you will receive the text for the Authorization from us), which has to be legalized

by a local Notary. The Notary has not only to legalize the signature of the person who is signing

the Authorization but also to confirm the person's legal responsibilities and that he/she is

authorized to sign such Authorization. 


After that the original of the Apostille of Authorization has to be sent to our Russian experts.
They will translate the document and get it legalized by a Russian Notary.

Then the Notification can be prepared and everything will be send to FSS for approval.  


A FSS-Notification has no validity period and has to be done only once but for almost all types
of products that contain transmitting/receiving cryptographic modules.
