Today, October 11, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine supported an initiative of the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade to extend the list of administrative services provided to citizens of Ukraine at the one-stop-shop centers for administrative services provision (CASP).
First and foremost, the Cabinet of Ministers ordinance streamlines current laws and regulations in line with the four new laws of Ukraine approved by the Verkhovna Rada. These laws are mainly aimed at decentralizing the powers of executive authorities to provide administrative services.
Thus, the CASPs are now authorized to:
issue a driver's license (as agreed upon by local authorities with the Ministry of Internal Affairs);
conduct state re-registration (re-registration, removal from the registry) of vehicles (as agreed upon by local authorities with the Ministry of Internal Affairs);
register civil status acts (as agreed upon by local authorities with the Ministry of Justice);
issue a permit for the employment of foreigners (without agreement);
provide social services (on the proposition of Andrii Reva, Minister of Social Policy).
"I urge the local authorities to ensure as soon as possible the provision of the aforesaid services in the ASCs of their region. At the same time, I believe that the Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of Internal Affairs will smoothly provide the centers of all regions with authority to issue these documents. I emphasize: the maximum quantity of administrative services should be offered according to the one-stop-shop principle. People must obtain fast and high quality service instead of knocking on each door while visiting local authorities", stressed First Vice Prime Minister Stepan Kubiv.
Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine recommends centers for administrative services provision to provide 106 administrative services. It should be noted that the Ministry engages in work on introduction of a single service standard in all the Centers. The mentioned standards, for example, include service provision procedure lasting 15 minutes from the moment when a client enters the office and until the service provision is completed.
