Is it obligatory to get registered with Roscomnadzor’s Registry of Personal Data Processors?

Is it obligatory to get registered with Roscomnadzor’s Registry of Personal Data Processors?

According to current legislation, a company should get registered with Roscomnadzor before starting to process personal data of physical individuals.

The legislation provides several exceptions from this rule, e.g. when the company processes data only due to labor law requirements.

Roscomnadzor is currently sending official notifications to the companies that should register as Personal Data Processors. Upon receipt of such notification, the company has 30 days to either register as Personal Data Processors or to provide a motivated refusal.

However, the second option will most likely lead to imposition of fine. The practice shows that criteria for the abovementioned exceptions are almost impossible to be met.

Thus, we recommend to get registered with Roscomnadzor upon receipt of such notifications. Bellerage specialists will be happy to assist your company with the registration.
