THE RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT HAS EXTENDED THE MORATORIUM ON BUSINESS INSPECTIONS FOR 2023
The Russian government has extended the moratorium on inspections. It will continue to operate in 2023. The decree was signed by the Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation Mikhail Mishustin.
It is clarified that in relation to objects of extremely high- and high-risk categories, the control authorities will conduct inspections based on special indicators. These include social, industrial facilities, certain types of activities that have a maximum or close to it level of risk of causing harm in the relevant area.
With regard to risk indicators, this format involves the initiation of control measures by the supervisory authorities in the event of receiving information about the existence of risks of violation of mandatory requirements.
The new decree also establishes the right of the control body to exclude a scheduled inspection from the inspection plan if it was preceded by a preventive visit at the request of a controlled person.
The development of new risk indicators and their application is only part of the mechanism for improving this approach. Since July 2020, a pre-trial appeal procedure has been launched in the control and supervisory sphere. A service for filing complaints against decisions of control bodies has been created on the public services portal.
