The state is interested in simplifying the conditions of doing business as much as possible. Therefore, the Government is maximally promoting the reform of law enforcement and fiscal bodies, as well as state supervision bodies. This was stated by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal in his opening statement at a session of the Cabinet of Ministers on July 28.
The Government has approved two bills concerning the basic principles of state supervision and strengthening the administrative responsibility of state supervisors. According to the Prime Minister, the documents will promote the development of partnerships between the state and business, as well as the reform of state surveillance bodies.
"The main innovations of these documents are a change in approaches to state supervision: from a repressive system focused on punishments and fines, to the formation of a preventive and risk-based system. This, in particular, will mean that the responsibility for illegal actions on the part of employees of state supervision bodies increases. At the same time, the emphasis is on audit and dialogue with business, which allows to eliminate existing violations without stopping the activities of enterprises. In addition, it is envisaged that the public will be more actively involved in this process, as well as the unification of the procedure for appealing against state supervision decisions," said Denys Shmyhal.
The Head of Government stressed that the documents contain many different clarifications and innovations. They are needed to prevent situations with absurd fines and contrived grounds for blocking the activities of businesses.
