Order of the Ministry of Agriculture of the Russian Federation No. 18 of February 1, 2006 on the Endorsement of the Method of Visual Determination of the Fact of Opening of the Container of Alcoholic Product

The Ministry of Agriculture of Russia has developed a method specifying the ways of visual determination of the fact of opening of the container and the conditions when the container is considered to be opened. Determination of the fact of opening is done by visual examination of the container with a naked or aided eye, with or without special devices that do not cause disruption of integrity or deformation of the closure but permit to determine visually the fact of opening.

The container is considered to be opened, in particular, in case of destruction of the cap sealing of aluminium foil, in the presence of cracks and breaking of wax coating, if the opening tab on the cans is torn out or deformed. When using a metal closure (wire hood), the container is considered opened if the tail of the lower hood is torn out, if there are cuts or breaking on the wire, as well as the hood tail has less than four waps.

Each of the mentioned subjects, respectively, may reveal the fact or signs of generation of the sources of own resources (capital) (part thereof) of the credit organisation if investors use improper assets. Different rules of further actions are specified depending on who has initiated the check procedure.

In any case when appropriate facts are revealed, territorial institutions or structural divisions of the Bank of Russia shall prepare proposals to demand the credit organisation to adjust own resources (capital). According to the common rule, after revealing the facts or signs of generation of sources of own resources by the credit organisation when investors use improper assets, a check of obtained information is arranged, the credit organisation being provided with opportunity to repulse or explain the revealed facts.

If explanations of the credit organisation on generation of own resources fail to repulse the facts of attraction of improper assets, the credit organisation gets an order to liquidate the risks stipulated by the fact of providing property to investors permitting to generate sources of own resources with improper assets.

The methods to liquidate (cover) the mentioned risks shall be: reduction of the registered capital; reduction of emission incomes; replacement by investors of the credit organisation or third parties of assets of the credit organisation stipulated by the fact of providing property to investors permitting to generate sources of own resources with improper assets with assets that do not have improper signs and have a real value corresponding to the balance cost of replaced assets; creation for such assets and conditional obligations assumed by the credit organisation reserves for possible losses in the amount corresponding to the balance cost of replaced assets or the amount of conditional obligations assumed by the credit organisation.

In case of a failure on the part of the credit organisations to fulfil orders to liquidate the risks, measures of forced interference may be applied to them.

The Direction is entered into force 10 days after the day of its official publication in the Herald of the Bank of Russia.
