The year of 2018 will become a breakthrough in updating the system of public supervision, as changes will affect approaches concerning the implementation of the control function. This was stated by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman in an interview to the New Time magazine.
"We will switch to a system of state supervision, focused on risk assessment. Such a system will eradicate examples, when state inspectors were able to come to entrepreneurs in order to demand material benefits. For example, if you are the owner of a café and you have so-called checklists, which contain clear 10-15 criteria, thereby you can assess your own work. If you carry out these requirements, pay taxes - no one (from inspectors ) will come to you," stressed the Head of Government.
Last year, the Cabinet of Ministers summoned a number of meetings devoted to the abolishment of hundreds of regulatory acts , which were impeding business and serving as a basis for corruption. In December, the Government, during its regular sitting, endorsed an initiative aimed to introduce checklists - a list of risks that may arise when conducting a certain business. According to the Prime Minister’s commission, all the controlling authorities are to determine essential sectoral risks by April 1, 2018, that entrepreneurs should avoid.
