Accreditation of Foreign Firms

A representative office, as one of the forms of a foreign company's presence on the Russian market, is being actively used by many foreign participants of foreign trade relations. This enables a foreign company to minimize its expenses and be represented on the Russian market, conduct marketing research, establish business contacts, analyze agreements and projects. A representative office secures a transparent presence of a foreign company in the Russian Federation. Closeness to a business partner, rapid reaction and the possibility to directly contact the company if there are any problems is an obligatory condition of a foreign company's successful operation on the Russian market. The North Chamber of Commerce and Industry issues permits for the activities of representative offices of foreign companies and institutions in the Russian Federation and accreditations in accordance with the law “On the Chambers of Commerce and Industry in the Russian Federation” (No. 5340-1 of July 7, 1993, paragraph 3, article 15). The issuing of permissions is the authorized function of the North Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
