As part of the second package of measures to support the IT industry, the government proposes to oblige companies to switch only to Russian Internet of Things (IoT) equipment for collecting data on housing and communal services, fire and environmental safety.
The corresponding bill and government decree should be developed by the Ministry of Digital Development with the participation of the Ministry of Economic Development by September. It is also proposed to prepare a legislative basis for the creation of Russian state information systems (GIS) for monitoring the weather, the environmental situation at especially hazardous facilities, as well as controlling the consumption of utilities by budgetary organizations. These solutions should also be based only on Russian IoT technologies.
According to the deputy prime minister's representative, the main argument for including the proposal in the support package was the high degree of readiness of the domestic market of IoT solutions manufacturers.
