Law to improve legal regulation of hotel services and classification of travel industry facilities

February 5, 2018

The President signed the Federal Law On Amending the Federal Law On the Basic Principles of Tourism Business in the Russian Federation and the Russian Federation Code of Administrative Offences to Improve the Legal Regulation of Hotel Services and the Classification of Travel Industry Facilities.

The Federal Law will introduce mandatory hotel classification, which is currently voluntary (unless otherwise stipulated by federal laws), and will update requirements for the classification of hotels, ski runs and beaches.

The classification procedure will include the issuance of three-year category certificates to hotels, ski runs and beaches.

A federal executive agency authorised to keep a register of the rated hotels, ski runs and beaches will publish information from this register on its official website.
