It should be noted that the essence of parallel imports is fundamentally different from the import of counterfeit products into Russia. All goods imported into the Russian Federation, including under the parallel import scheme, will necessarily undergo all the provided inspections and customs clearance procedure, as well as they are subject to warranty obligations provided for by law. Therefore, it is important to understand the fundamental differences between parallel imports and counterfeiting. In the first case, we are talking about the import into the country of original products made in compliance with all norms and standards, but without permission to supply to Russia from the owner of the trademark. In the second case, this is the import of counterfeit goods.
