Parallel imports of auto spare parts are legalized in Russia


 

RusAutoNews.- The Russian government has allowed parallel imports of “original goods in demand” of foreign brands without the consent of the rights holders, as reported by Vedomosti.

The list of “original goods in demand” for parallel imports will focuse on auto spare parts, including the parts for commercial vehicles and special equipment, as reported.

On March 28, the Ministry of Industry and Trade proposed the abolition of responsibility for the parallel import of products that are needed in order to saturate the consumer market. FAS officials advocated extending such imports to all commodities, only in certain exceptional cases. On March 30, the Cabinet of Ministers allowed parallel imports.
