CONTROL AND SUPERVISION: FROM "GUILLOTINE" TO SERVICE
Dmitriy Grigorenko, Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation – Chief of the Government Staff
In Russia, work continues on the reform of control and oversight activities. The goal of this transformation is to make the interaction between government and business simpler and more transparent, more convenient and faster.
Since 2020, the country has a "regulatory guillotine" as part of an ambitious reform of control and oversight activities. The Government of the Russian Federation has done a tremendous amount of work on evaluating and recording all current and mandatory requirements to business. More than 143,000 mandatory requirements have been eliminated as redundant or duplicative. This is about 12 thousand regulations, of which about 9 thousand documents are from the times of the USSR. The old regulation has been replaced by a new one that takes modern realities into account.
The basic Law on State Control, which defined a new model of control and oversight activities, was adopted. The sectoral statutes has been audited and 132 dedicated bylaws have been amended. In connection with these changes in legislation, the Government and control and oversight bodies are carrying out extensive work on the adoption of bylaws of the Government and its agencies: more tan 500 statutes are expected to be adopted by June 2022.
• Results of the regulatory guillotine — how do businesses and the state assess it?
• Digitalization of business licensing and inter-agency interaction — are there prospects for accelerating the processes?
• Risk-oriented approach in control activities — the advantages of the new approach in the implementation of control and oversight activities.
• The procedure of pre-trial appeal in the control activities — a new institution, the idea and preliminary results, the benefits for business.
