Licensing of battery charging activities canceled

article 30/09/2019

The amendments to the Federal law «On electric power industry» establish that power supply activities do not include works on charging of accumulator batteries with electricity, including vehicles with an electric motor. Thus, the licensing of this activity was abolished from August 2, 2019. These provisions are contained in the Federal law №262-FZ dated 02.08.2019.

The Russian Classification of Economic Activities (OKVED), approved by the Order of Rosstandart №14-st from 31.01.2014 in force as of 20.02.2019, does not contain the type of activity on charging of accumulator batteries with electricity.

According to the Information and Analytical system Globas, at present there are about 170 operating enterprises in Russia, specializing in the production of accumulator batteries. Information about them in full is available to subscribers of Globas.
