It will be possible to hand over biometric data at the MFC KXan 36 Daily News

Citizens of Russia will be able to submit their biometric data to the Unified Biometric System (UBS) directly at multifunctional centers (MFCs) using Cryptobiocabins used for issuing international passports. This will allow you to transfer data in the most secure mode and avoid leakage. Previously, it was possible to submit biometric data at bank branches.

The Ministry of Digital Development has prepared a draft government decree that provides the possibility of creating specialized windows in the MFC for collecting biometric personal data of individuals in the EBS GIS. The document is published on the portal of regulatory legal acts.

Work on equipping the MFC with Cryptobiocabins has been carried out since 2020 and made it possible to transfer the functions of issuing biometric passports of a new generation from the Ministry of Internal Affairs to civilian personnel. The completion date for the project has been pushed back several times due to pandemic restrictions and the technical complexity of commissioning. According to the Ministry of Economic Development, at the moment, 451 cabins have been purchased for the MFC, 406 cabins have been put into operation.

An employee of the MFC will be able to control the delivery of biometric samples by the applicant and exclude the possibility of fraudulent actions regarding the delivery of biometrics by a third party.

“The MFC, equipped with a software and hardware complex for the purpose of placing or updating in a single identification and authentication system the information necessary for registering individuals in this system, as well as placing biometric personal data in a single biometric system, organizes service windows for applicants to exclude the possibility surrender by a person of biometric personal data that is not related to the applicant,” the text of the explanatory note says.

After the approval of the draft resolution, the Ministry of Digital Development will issue an order explaining the procedure for the actions of an authorized employee of the MFC to place and update the information of citizens necessary for registration in the EBS GIS.

The department paid special attention to the fact that the process of submitting biometric personal data to the EBS should be clearly regulated, transparent and secure, and any vulnerabilities should be eliminated, including at the stage of data collection.

Since 2022, the EBS of Russia has acquired the status of a state information system. At the same time, Russians can independently submit biometric samples to the system, remotely using a verified account on the State Services, as well as data from a chip on a passport. The EBS, together with the login and password from the State Services, allows banks to open an account, deposit or provide a loan without the personal presence of a citizen, as well as gain access to various government services and services.
