Dvorkovich: the requirements of the “Spring package” you need to phase in from 2018


MOSCOW, July 10. /TASS/. The onset of action of the anti-terrorist package of amendments (“Spring package”) do not need to push for 2023, said Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich. You need to gradually introduce requirements in 2018.

“There is a General consensus of the government, which should gradually, beginning July 1, 2018, to impose certain requirements. The government does not need to move the start of the implementation of these requirements for 2023”, – said Dvorkovich.

Now the lawyers decide whether you really need to do this, amendments to the law or the authority of the government, said Deputy Prime Minister.

“My preliminary assessment – needed changes to the law. Small, just two lines that the government be given the right to determine certain stages of the introduction of certain requirements of Telecom operators, which will minimize upcoming investments and to avoid excessive growth rates. The discussion is purely legal, but the content can all agree: we need to phase in these requirements, no doubts there,” he pointed out.

Informed about how to implement the “law of Spring” in stages, rather than to postpone its entry into force in 2023, said the head of the Ministry Nikolai Nikiforov.

The package of anti-terrorist amendments from 1 July 2018 obliges the Telecom operators for three years to store data about the facts of reception, transmission, delivery and processing of voice information and text messages, images, sounds and videos. The most “heavy” content such as images, sounds and video – operators should keep up to six months. All of this information the operators are also obliged to provide upon request of the security services.

As stated Nikiforov, in the opinion of the Ministry on the law we are talking about a three – or five-year term of implementation, but, according to the Ministry, the question is not the timing and stages of implementation.

Phasing implementation can occur on a regional basis, by type of operators, the composition of data storage, or other principles.
