30 october 2019

The subcommittee on improving the monitoring (supervisory) and licensing functions of the federal executive agencies has approved the composition of 41 work groups on the implementation of the "regulatory guillotine" mechanism. Their operating procedure has also been approved.

The work groups were formed with the participation of the Analytical Center under the Government, the Forum Analytical Center, leading business associations (Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs, Business Russia, Opora Russia, Industrial and Commercial Chamber), the Association of European Businesses, and the Business Rights Commissioner. The work groups include representatives of federal executive agencies, expert, academic and scientific communities, business associations, development institutions, public organizations of entrepreneurs, commissioners for the rights of entrepreneurs, and other representatives. Other participants of the groups are representatives of companies from various industries (Rosneft, Novatek, Technonikol, Auchan, Gazprombank, Sberbank, EuroChem, Lukoil, Cherkizovo, X5 Retail Group, Miratorg , Rusagro, Yandex.Taxi, Barkley, PIK, Megafon, Uralkali, Metallinvest, United Shipbuilding Corporation, MTS, Rostelecom, Sistema, Sovcomflot, UTair, Aeroflot, Kaskol, Alrosa, S7, Sibur, Evraz, Gazprom Neft, Inter RAO, Polyus, RusHydro, Mechel, etc.).

"Activities of the work groups should become a kind of navigator in the "regulatory guillotine" legislative activity. We expect that, due to a wide discussion by subject matter experts (more than 700 people), it will be possible to develop legislation that can provide transparent and understandable rules of conduct that meet today's realities," said Ekaterina Salugina-Sorokova, Director of the Regulatory Policy Department of the Government of the Russian Federation.

As part of their activities, members of work groups will participate in the formation of new regulatory structures, in the preparation of draft regulatory legal acts containing mandatory requirements, as well as other documents in the relevant areas of public relations. The activities of the work group participants will be aimed both at assessing incoming provisions from government agencies and at preparing their own proposals regarding all monitoring mechanisms, ranging from the new regulatory structure to specific mandatory requirements. By the end of 2020, the work groups should create new monitoring and supervisory regulation.

Moreover, a new version of the website dedicated to the reform of monitoring and supervision activities and the implementation of the "regulatory guillotine" mechanism has been launched — контроль-надзор.рф (knd.ac.gov.ru).  For more efficient work, a possibility to send the change proposals on regulatory legal acts through the collection form of "regulatory absurds" is implemented on the website. Proposals will be further considered by the work groups.
