Interfax Information Services Group Key Developments

Interfax Group's SPARK Launches Service to Verify Notarized Documents

The SPARK information and analysis system, developed by Interfax Group for verification of counterparties and risk management, has launched a new service to verify the details of notarized documents in the Unified Notary Information System. The service, developed jointly with the Federal Notary Chamber of Russia and the Center for Innovation and Information Technology, is intended for verifying the authenticity of notarized documents by comparing their details with the details of documents that have undergone notarial certification. Notarized documents are verified by the following details: type of document, number of document in the register of notarial acts, date of notarial act, series and number of standard form, and full name of notary or acting notary. The new service will help to exercise due diligence when making deals, conducting financial transactions and transferring ownership rights to subscriber mobile numbers when these actions are carried out by an authorized party under a power of attorney. The SPARK system provides access to the Federal Notary Chamber database, which contains more than 100 million forms dating back to 2010 and is updated in real time through the Unified Notary Information System. Reports on verification of notarized documents can be downloaded in PDF format for printing, and a history of requests will be stored in the SPARK user's account.

United Credit Bureau and Interfax Group Launches an Online Service to Provide Credit Histories on Individuals and Businesses to Users of the SPARK System

United Credit Bureau (UCB) and Interfax Group have launched an online service to provide credit histories on individuals and businesses to users of the SPARK system. Due to the latest changes to legislation, legal entities that are not lending institutions now have the right to request credit reports if they are authorized to do so by the subject of the credit report. The security directors, HR professionals and credit managers of companies that are SPARK subscribers will be able to use the new service to obtain credit reports through a familiar interface along with other information they need for their work. The new service is fully compliant with Russian legislation. SPARK subscribers will be able to receive information from UCB only after signing a corresponding agreement, with the credit report subject's permission in hand, and complying with strict requirements for protection of personal data. A credit report is a document that reflects credit history, providing detailed information about the borrower's credit obligations, including current and repaid loans, credit limits and duration, outstanding balances and timeliness of payments. The credit report also includes the borrower's credit score based on their credit history.

National Settlement Depository and Interfax News Agency Join Forces to Develop Reference Source of Corporate Data and Pricing Center

National Settlement Depository (NSD) and Interfax News Agency announced the launch of a new joint project to collate, verify and distribute corporate information. The main goal of collaboration between NSD and Interfax in the sphere of corporate information is to create a reference database of all available information about Russian issuers and their financial instruments. The system will incorporate official data from the NSD; data that issuers disclose via Interfax as authorized stock market agent; and live updates that Interfax itself collates about issuers and securities. The principles by which NSD and Interfax will create the corporate data system comply with the latest world practice for the development of information products in the Reference Data segment. It will guarantee the multi-tiered verification of data, speed at which information is updated, and convenient integration of the full database and its components with the client's information systems.
