Taxi services in Russia will transfer customer data to the FSB
The corresponding bill was prepared by the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation. In addition to customer data, the bill provides for the regulation of the taxi sector, a ban on the reception of drivers from other states and many other restrictive measures.
Whether this bill will be passed remains in question. The previous version of the bill was rejected by carriers and taxi aggregators.
The new bill was prepared without the participation of regulators and is likely to be supplemented or revised.
In particular, the draft law of the Ministry of Transport provides for the obligation of taxi ordering services to provide automated remote access” to their information systems and data to the Federal Security Service (FSB). This is the data used to receive, store, process and transmit passenger taxi orders.
