Because of the broken equipment in the data center to the TCF from March 31, throughout the country it was impossible to issue the goods using the electronic Declaration system. This was reported by a source in the Domodedovo customs and the source in the Central information technology customs control (CETT).
In the CETT website published a message: “In connection with the failure of the hardware and technical means of the Main data processing center of the FCS of Russia with 31.03.2016 in customs, directly subordinate FCS of Russia, there is no technical ability of customs operations involving the placement of goods under a customs procedure. Under reconstruction”.
On specialized forums on the Internet users complained that it is impossible to file a Declaration at customs in the Sheremetyevo and Domodedovo. “We have loads to Domodedovo arrived on Thursday. Today is Saturday — fed and does not work. When all this is over, unknown,” wrote one user. “At Domodedovo airport at 16:10 was allowed to take shape on paper,” added another.
Problems concerned customs offices “across the country”, said the interlocutor of CETT. The edition “South China — Special look” wrote that from-for failure, “completely paralyzed the export activities of Russian enterprises, guide their cargo to China”. According to him, this is the longest crash in the Russian customs system from 2014, when it was canceled paper documents.
On Sunday, during the afternoon on duty CETT said that the failure in the data processing center of the FCS completely resolved. But the goods Declaration filed in the period of the failure has not recovered, and they need to be submitted again, he said. The representative of the Kaliningrad regional customs has clarified that the crash was fixed in the night from Saturday to Sunday, and now electronic declarations are issued in normal mode.
Breakage due to sanctions
The reasons for the failure of the interlocutors in the customs authorities refused to name, having specified only that participants had already identified. 31 March, on the day of failure, the head of the Main Department of information technologies of the FCS Dmitry Danilin told the conference that because of the sanctions the USA and EU custom with the end of 2014 can’t buy from the American Cisco Systems high-performance routers and switches, and the Russian or Chinese counterparts are not suitable or not good enough. The failure of Cisco to supply equipment and services to FCS may lead to “an increase in abnormal situations,” said Danilin.
From 1 January 2014 in Russia was introduced the system of obligatory customs Declaration of goods in electronic form. And now according to the rules of customs Declaration in the country is carried out only in electronic form, “except in cases established by the government of the Russian Federation”.
In companies, whose business depends on the clearance of imported goods, the failure to notice was not in time. Difficulties in processing international mail no, you work in a regular mode, said the representative of “mail of Russia”. A source in one of international online retailers said that his company had some difficulties: “the Process hangs for a couple of days. Goods were produced not all of the posts and very slowly. But on Saturday evening the work normalized”. Crashing at customs is a frequent phenomenon, he added.
