The State Duma of the Russian Federation adopted in the second reading a bill that provides permission for the remote identification of foreign clients to platforms for the issuance of digital financial assets (DFA). It is reported by Interfax.

Amendments are being made to the law on combating money laundering. According to the authors, this will simplify the opening of accounts for non-residents, including without personal presence.

In addition to CFA issuers, this list includes professional participants in the securities market (excluding investment advisers), investment platform operators, management companies of investment funds, mutual funds and non-state pension funds. They will receive instructions for identification from Russian banks.

The bill also reduces the limits under which operations on behalf of foreign clients who have passed remote identification are subject to mandatory control. For non-resident individuals, this amount is 50,000 rubles or more, for legal entities – 500,000 rubles.

The government, in agreement with the FSB and the Central Bank, approves a list of states whose residents will be able to carry out remote identification in the Russian Federation.

If adopted, the law will enter into force 10 days after its official publication.

Earlier, Ivan Chebeskov, director of the Financial Policy Department of the Ministry of Finance, predicted the growth of the CFA market to 5–10% of the volume of the Russian stock market within five years.
