The Russian market on the whole and Sverdlovsk Region’s market in particular are getting more and more familiar with the so-called distance sales, which is why the Russian Government adopted a special provision on distance sales regulations. The rules state that distance sales are a way of selling certain products through getting the end user acquainted with them with the help of catalogues, advertising leaflets, pictures, websites, etc.

To protect the citizens’ life and health, the regional division of Rospotrebnadzor (the state consumer rights watchdog) insists that all customers pay close attention to the barcode information as well as the product’s compliance with its declared properties.
