Legalization of parallel import

The Government has tasked the Ministry of Industry and Trade with compiling a list of goods that can be imported into the Russian Federation without the consent of the rightsholders of such goods.

Note: in the past, parallel import was prohibited in the Russian Federation because it violated the exclusive rights of the rightsholders. This refers to original goods that will be imported into the Russian Federation without the consent of the rightsholders.

Order № 506 by the Government of the Russian Federation dated March 29, 2022, “On goods to which certain provisions of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation concerning protection of exclusive rights over the results of intellectual property expressed in such goods, and over the means of individualization used to differentiate such goods, cannot be applied”.
