The Russian Ministry of Digital Development has launched the Europrotocol Online service in the State Services Auto mobile application. With it, motorists can issue a notice of an accident without calling a police officer and filling out paper forms.
To issue an electronic europrotocol, you must:
- Indicate information about vehicles and OSAGO policies.
- Describe the circumstances of the accident and photograph the drawn diagram of the accident.
- Take a photo of the scene.
- Indicate information about disagreements and damage to vehicles.
It is enough that the application “Gosuslugi Avto” is installed on one of the drivers. The second participant in the accident must only confirm the correctness of the data using the link generated in the application. But it is faster and more convenient to draw up a Europrotocol from two mobile devices, notes the Ministry of Digital Development, the registration will take no more than 30 minutes. The new service will allow participants in an accident not to visit the office of the insurance company – the notification will go there online. Also, Europrotocol Online minimizes the risk of data errors: the form is automatically filled in with information from the State Services.
To issue an electronic European protocol, both participants in an accident must have verified accounts at the State Services. In addition, there should be no casualties in the accident, and no damage should be caused to property other than the vehicles themselves. Up to 400,000 rubles can be reimbursed under the European Protocol if the participants in the accident have photographed the damage and they have no disagreements, and up to 100,000 rubles if the drivers have disagreements, but photographic evidence has been issued, and also if the drivers refuse to photograph the damage in the absence of disagreements. If there are disagreements and there is no photo fixation within the framework of the European protocol, there will be no insurance compensation, in this case you will have to call a police officer and draw up an accident not according to the European protocol.
