On 25 September 2003, VEB.RF began using the following procedure for sending documents to its Counterparties via the Internet by open electronic mail transmission if such Counterparties do not have separate electronic communication agreements with VEB.RF.
- The transmission of any information classified as bank secrecy under Article 857 of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation and Article 26 of the Federal Law “On Banks and Banking” or any documents requiring authorisation is prohibited.
- The transmission in any electronic mail messages with information classified as information for restricted distribution, except as specified in paragraph 1, is allowed only in a password-protected file attached to a mail message. Any messages received by VEB.RF in violation of these requirements should be ignored.
- Responsibility for fulfilling these requirements lies with VEB.RF’s employees sending and/or receiving mail messages.
- Files are closed with the dedicated CryptFL program, which is freely distributed and delivered to VEB.RF’s Counterparties without restrictions.
- Any password should be at least 6 and at most 32 letters and/or numbers in length. No password may be mentioned in any message sent by electronic mail transmission.
- Any password should be communicated via other communication channels (for example, by prior arrangement). No password may be sent via the Internet by open electronic mail transmission.
- The use of standard file password protection tools (MS Office, WinZip etc) is not allowed.
- VEB.RF appreciates how all Counterparties understand and comply with these requirements.
