Personal Data: What Needs to be Done by 1 January

January 1, 2013: deadline for notification of Roskomnadzor on personal data processing

After January 1, 2013 companies processing personal data (Operators) and their officers may be brought to administrative liability for failure to submit to the competent authority additional information on personal data processing. 

Federal Law of 27.07.2006 No. 152-FZ ‘On Personal Data’ (the Law) provides for an obligation of an Operator to notify the competent authority (Roscomnadzor) of its intent to process personal data.

By January 1, 2013, Operators that had processed personal data and notified Roscomnadzor before July 1, 2011 must submit to Roskomnadzor additional data in the form of Information Letter.

Operators that have commenced the processing of personal data, but have not yet notified Roskomnadzor, may be brought to administrative liability for failure to notify.

Not all companies processing personal data are subject to notification of Roskomnadzor. The Law provides for certain exceptions.
