The State Duma in the third reading adopted amendments to the Administrative Code and Federal Law 319-FZ “On Communications”. A new article 13.2-1 will appear in the law, according to which penalties are introduced for operators for non-compliance with the requirements for the prevention of telephone fraud. The operator is obliged to block all spoofed numbers, for example, when the number is listed as Russian, and the call is from another country.
Also, operators are required to transmit the call originator numbers and unique identification codes unchanged. If there is no such data, there is also a penalty for this.
The penalty depends on the offense:
- for officials – from 30 thousand to 100 thousand rubles;
- for individual entrepreneurs – from 200 thousand to 800 thousand rubles;
- for legal entities – from 500 thousand to 1 million rubles.
