"In effect, it's a list of control questions," the expert explained. "It includes the mandatory requirements for ensuring the protection of health and safety of individuals and the valuables that must be protected under the law."

Mr. Pryadilnikov also explained that all the check lists can be found on the websites of the supervision agencies and on the website of the state monitoring and supervision reform. The checklists are intended to streamline the relations between business and the monitoring and supervision agencies. The first to try the new check list based approach are going to be the Ministry of the Russian Federation for Civil Defense, Emergencies and Elimination of Consequences of Natural Disasters, the Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing (Rospotrebnadzor), the Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance (Rosselkhoznadzor), the Federal Service for Natural Resources Supervision (Rosprirodnadzor) and the Federal Service for Transport Supervision (Rostransnadzor). They account for more than half of all scheduled audits, a fact borne out by regional statistics.

"At the moment, 70 check lists have been approved. They are going to be trialed for the first three months as part of environmental, sanitary and epidemiological, veterinary, land and fire safety supervision," Mr. Pryadilnikov noted.

The expert said that the next batch of check lists is going to be used from January 1, 2018. The database is to be updated based on the experience gained during the pilot project. In addition, a range of agencies using check lists will be expanded. The aforementioned five organizations are going to be joined by the Federal Antimonopoly Service, the Federal Customs Service, the Federal Tax Service, the Federal Service for Surveillance in Healthcare (Roszdravnadzor), the Federal Service for Labor and Employment (Rostrud), the Federal Environmental, Industrial and Nuclear Supervision Service and the Ministry of Internal Affairs. This means that the check lists are going to be used in at least 90% of all scheduled audits.
