Russian authorities proposed to ban the supply of imported measuring instruments 10:55

Russian manufacturers of “intelligent metering systems” have suggested that authorities ban the installation of foreign devices in homes and impose fines on those who violate this rule. In this respect writer Referring to the conclusion of an independent anti-corruption expertise of the law firm “Kachkin and Partners”, “Kommersant” was sent to the Ministry of Energy, the Ministry of Justice, the Attorney General’s Office and the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

By law, from 1 January 2022, suppliers and grid utilities are required to use only local meters. However, due to the absence of fines in the legislation and the direct prohibition of purchasing foreign meters, some organizations ignore these requirements, which are corruption factors. For this reason, upon the recommendation of the law firm, a ban on foreign meter purchases should be introduced and a certain amount of fine should be imposed for illegality.

Market participants assured that in 2023 they will buy only domestic measuring devices. Also, the Russian authorities took a number of measures, preferring domestic measuring devices for purchases. Therefore, punitive measures in this regard may be unnecessary. At the same time, the source of the publication among manufacturers noted that it is now impossible to keep track of how many meters the company bought manufactured in Russia, and some took this opportunity.

Another interlocutor of the newspaper added that at the moment there are no purely Russian meters, since the component base is produced in other countries. Therefore, it makes the most sense to invest in domestic microelectronic development.

Izvestia newspaper in early April Wrotethat apartment and private home owners may need to allow residential and communal services workers to install and maintain smart water and heat meters.

Previously reportedThat they plan to include the installation of smart meters in Russia in the tariffs for housing and communal services.
