The Supreme Court of Russia has approved the procedure for filing court documents electronically. From 01.01.2017, the participants in a trial have the right to apply documents to courts of general jurisdiction over the Internet. According to the Resolution of the Judicial Department at the Supreme Court of Russia as of 27.12.2016 No. 251, electronic documents are submitted through a personal account (made by an authorized representative of a company in his/her own name). To confirm an application process, an enhanced qualified electronic signature or an account on a website of public services is required. The court may accept the electronic document itself (originally created in electronic form) or a scan of a paper document.
