Manufacturers and suppliers of printing equipment have sent a letter to the Russian government in a bid to complete the current scoring system for evaluating printers and other printing devices to recognize them as domestic. Now, such equipment may only be considered Russian only if it employs Russian chips, which simply do not exist. is the image source for this video.

According to a Kommersant source, the Ministry of Industry and Trade and the Ministry of Digital Transformation are discussing ways to improve the scoring system for evaluating radio electronics' "domestic" nature. According to a Kommersant source, manufacturers have requested to include requirements for printing equipment – printers and multifunctional devices (MFPs) in the assessment system.

"Departments have KPIs for the purchase of Russian electronics," said the interlocutor of Kommersant: "Now Russian printers and MFPs are not in the register of the Ministry of Industry and Trade, and departments are buying foreign equipment."

The Ministry of Digital Development stated that ministries and industries determine for which positions a point system should be implemented. According to state-owned companies' methodological recommendations, the share of Russian equipment in state-owned enterprises should be more than 40% from January 1, 2025.

According to F+ tech, the size of the Russian Federation's printing equipment market (excluding consumables) decreased by half to $310 million in 2022. "The search and development of new supply chains, which are under pressure due to the risk of secondary sanctions and are constantly changing, have increased the delivery time and cost of equipment," according to Dmitry Kuptsov, director of the F+ tech Peripheral Equipment Department.

The issue of whether or not a radio equipment should be considered domestic was the focus of discussions about the 719th government decree adopted in 2022.

Maxim Koposov, Promobit's general director, said the company's printing equipment in the Russian Federation can't be described as "Russian," since most of it is constructed from ready-made components supplied by Chinese or Taiwanese companies under ODM agreements.
