Russia is moving ahead with the development of a Unified Federal Information Register Containing Data on the Population of the Russian Federation (hereinafter “the Register”).  The Federal law of June 8, 2020 No. 168-FL came into force on June 8, 2020.

The Register may not be required by legislative acts as a single and obligatory source of population data up to January 1, 2023. It is specified to complete the Register by the end of 2025.

The Register will contain the following data on individuals:

  • first, last and patronymic name
  • date and place of birth;
  • gender
  • individual pension insurance account number
  • individual tax number (INN)
  • citizenship
  • marital status

The Federal Tax Service is responsible for the maintenance and data security of the Register. The Register will be based on information contained in the Federal Tax Service, Ministry of Internal Affairs, Ministry of Defense Ministry of Education and Science and state non-budgetary funds.

Data on taxes and incomes, pension, health condition and other biometric data will not be included.

State administration bodies will have access to the Register as part of their remit. Notary offices will not have direct access. However, they will be obligated to check data upon request when notarizing.

In case of discovering a mistake, the adopted law determines the procedure of introduction of amendment to the Register upon the application of individuals. Removal of records from the Register is not provided.

The Register is expected to promote more accurate forecasts of the country’s development and timely manage the ongoing processes.
