Electronic documents

Documents containing information in electronic and digital form are called electronic (see article 3 chapter I FZ RF №1-FZ).

Electronic documents signed with e-signature (digital e-signature) are relevant in law originals if agreed by the parties (according to FZ RF dated 10.01.2002 №1-FZ). You shall not print them out and store in paper archives. They are delivered to recipients immediately at any distance and are available at any time. Taking into account the latest amendments to legislation all document flow between the companies may be changed over to electronic form.

Interchange of other e-document types is not strictly regulated by authorities. Companies in Russia interchange such documents since Y2002.
