Deregulation does not take away momentum: the IWG on deregulation considered several initiatives that are highly demanded by businesses and citizens.
According to the results of the meeting, the following instruments of state regulation were recommended for optimisation or cancellation, in particular:
- business verification system;
- sanitary passports;
- mandatory certification of cars imported into the customs territory of Ukraine and others.
In general, the package of deregulation initiatives analysed today by the IWG contained 12 items in 6 directions: general regulatory rules, agriculture, construction, medicine, transport, and recovery. According to the results of the meeting, a number of tools will be removed altogether, the rest will be modernised.
In the field of general regulatory rules
It is recommended to change the punitive system of checks to a service one. In particular, introduce voluntary insurance and audit of companies’ activities, which, in turn, will reduce the number and frequency of inspections. In addition, the IWG recommended transferring documentary tax checks to the online format, and the Permit to perform high-risk works and to operate (use) machines, mechanisms, and high-risk equipment – to the declarative principle.
In the field of transport
It is recommended to cancel the registration of used vehicles purchased by businesses as goods for further sale. It is also recommended to provide for the possibility of submitting an electronic customs declaration using the Diia means when carrying out customs clearance of a passenger car, and to change the approach to determining the value of a car during customs clearance by creating an appropriate database that would take into account the age of cars.
In the field of medicine
It is recommended to cancel the need for business entities to obtain sanitary passports in several areas of economic activity, as outdated and duplicate.
In the field of construction
It is recommended to cancel the requirements for the development of the environmental impact assessment section, if during the construction, reconstruction or overhaul of buildings, structures and their complexes, an environmental impact assessment (EIA) is not required, or if an EIA report is available.
In the field of agriculture
It is recommended to deregulate the field of viticulture by canceling:
- approval for the write-off of vineyards of all forms of ownership, which were established at the expense of state funds;
- conclusion on the quality of new wine production;
- approval of controlled appellations of origin wines;
- approval of the use of foreign technological documentation.
It is recommended to deregulate the fishing industry by abolishing:
- approval of the modes of fishery exploitation of water bodies and control over the activities of special commodity fisheries;
- approval of the application for approval of the regime of fishery exploitation of the water object.
A number of instruments regulating the market of technical hemp are also recommended for abolition or optimization.
In the field of recovery
It is recommended to digitise more than 10 tools in the field of cultural heritage protection (procedures for obtaining approvals, permits, conclusions, etc.). It is recommended to digitise and modernise the procedures for opening, in particular, private kindergartens and creative centers. Today, these procedures involve “paper” communication between the initiative business and state bodies, which significantly slows down the process of creating new educational institutions.
