Putin signs law on creating unified notary database in Russia
MOSCOW, October 3 - RAPSI. President Vladimir Putin has signed a law on creating a unified notarial base in Russia, the Kremlin's website reported on Wednesday.
"The federal law aims to protect the proprietary rights of citizens, to prevent fraud in civil transactions, and to improve the quality of notarial services and the transparency of notarial activities," according to the summary attached to the document.
The federal law stipulates the establishment of the Unified Information System of Notaries Public, and lays down the rules for its operation. Notary officers will be obligated to submit all the major data on their notarial actions. This will allow a full base of registered notarized documents to be formed.
The system will contain a registry of notarized wills and notices on will revocation, a registry of notarized powers-of-attorney and orders of their revocation, a registry of open inheritance cases, a registry of notarized marriage contracts, and a registry of movable property pledge notices.
