Russians will protect from counter fraud
The Russians want to protect against fraudsters who trick the services of checking and replacing communal resource meters. A bill was submitted to the State Duma, which presupposes the mandatory registration of metering devices in electronic form. Paper passports will lose their legal force, and homeowners will be able to check the expiration dates of the meters online.
As the "Russian newspaper" with reference to the information of Rosstandart, companies offering services for checking or replacing meters should, in front of the owner, enter information on the metering device into the electronic database of the agency. Access to it will be through the portal of public services. If desired, the customer may require a paper verification passport, but he will no longer have legal force.
The innovation will protect citizens from fraudsters who report deliberately false information about the end of the verification period of devices and the need for a repeated paid procedure. In real time, homeowners will be able to check the installation and planned replacement of meters.
