Implementation of a developer’s e-cabinet was approved at the legislative level

The work on the development and implementation of the Unified State Electronic System in construction has been a very important priority of the Better Regulation Delivery Office for more than a year. Today, the draft law 1081 providing the legislative basis for this step was adopted by 319 votes in the second reading.

The document provides for the long-awaited implementation of e-cabinets for construction project owners and other responsible persons in construction, as well as will allow:

  • Minimizing corruption risks in the construction industry
  • Improving the quality of services provided
  • Providing e-flow of documentation based on a “single point of contact” principle in the industry
  • Integrating all registers and data
  • Reducing a list of documents and the time required
  • Increasing the investment attractiveness of Ukraine

The e-system will provide full electronic interaction of individuals and legal entities with state government bodies, local authorities and economic entities, which will allow to make all processes of providing construction services public.

Some provisions of the Law come into force on December 1, 2019, and this will allow to accelerate the introduction of positive changes in the industry. For example, as of December 2019:

  • the possibility of financing the works on the creation of a town-planning cadastre at the expense of international aid will be provided;
  • a principle, when technical conditions are valid until the completion of a construction project, regardless of the change of an entity providing them, will be established.

On March 1, 2020, the following provisions will enter into force:

1) on establishing administrative responsibility for violation of the procedure of providing administrative services;

2) on the procedure for assigning addresses of real estate objects;

3) on the introduction of the institution of consulting engineers.

At the same time, certain provisions of the law are to be delayed, depending on the stages of implementation of the Unified State E-System in construction that will be implemented as of December 1, 2020.
