Insurers are concerned about the possibility of removing the obligation to provide an MTPL policy during vehicle registration. In this respect reports RIA Novosti, citing the Russian Association of Automobile Insurers (RUA).
“Checking the MTPL policy when registering a car is one option to monitor whether the driver has MTPL. And if we remove it, we can return to the 90s and “showdowns” on the roads. Therefore control must be maintained, but can be changed. We think recording photos is the most effective way,” RSA said.
7 November State Duma accepted A bill that, in the first reading, excludes compulsory motor insurance from the list of mandatory documents for vehicle registration.
A bill eliminating the obligation to present an MTPL insurance policy when changing the owner of a car was submitted to the State Duma in June this year by the chairman of the State Duma Transport Committee, Evgeniy Moskvichev. In the explanatory note added to the bill, it was stated that registration of a vehicle does not impose an obligation on the owner to use the vehicle and that the vehicle cannot be used for a long time.
According to the compulsory insurance law, vehicle owners must insure the risk of legal liability before registering to change the owner of the vehicle, but within ten days from the date of purchase of the vehicle.
