Russians will be able to post information on the termination of a power of attorney issued in simple writing, including in electronic form, by publishing it in a special register on the website of the Federal Notary Chamber. The corresponding bill was adopted by the State Duma on Wednesday, November 24.
From the explanatory note to the draft law, it follows that the entry of information about the cancellation of the power of attorney can also be carried out remotely in electronic form. Amendments to Article 189 of Part 1 of the Civil Code will simplify and make it safer to use handwritten powers of attorney that are not notarized – for example, to quickly cancel them. The current procedure provides for the publication of the cancellation of the power of attorney in the print media.
Information about the cancellation of the power of attorney will be provided by the Federal Notary Chamber daily and around the clock to an unlimited number of persons without charging a fee via the Internet. If third parties have not been notified of the cancellation of the power of attorney earlier, then they will be considered notified of such cancellation on the next day after entering this information into the Register of orders for cancellation of powers of attorney issued in simple written form, included in the EIS, or after one month from the date publication of such information in the official publication in which information on bankruptcy is published.
When submitting information remotely, an order to cancel a document will need to be signed with an enhanced qualified electronic signature, the Federal Notary Chamber specified.
The bill may come into force on December 29, 2021.
On November 18, Izvestia wrote that a State Duma deputy from United Russia, Natalya Kostenko, sent a bill “On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of the Russian Federation” for recall to the Central Bank. The new rules propose to provide citizens with the right to submit an application to a bank, where they instruct their proxies, such as relatives, to give consent or block financial transactions on their accounts.
