Almost a third of the current state regulatory instruments in the areas of aviation, roads, transport safety, railways, communications, navigation, and tourism are proposed to be abolished or modernized.
The relevant decision was made at a meeting of the Interagency Working Group on Deregulation, headed by First Deputy Prime Minister – Minister of Economy of Ukraine Yuliia Svyrydenko and Deputy Prime Minister – Minister of Digital Transformation Mykhailo Fedorov.
“We analyzed more than 150 state regulatory instruments within the competence of the Ministry for Communities, Territories and Infrastructure Development and central government bodies subordinated to the Ministry. These are complex areas, as many of the instruments are envisaged, in particular, by international law and relevant agreements. We are talking about the safety of navigation, air traffic, and other important areas. Nevertheless, simplification and optimization are possible in these areas as well, and we have proposed such steps,” said Yuliia Svyrydenko.
Thus, 75% of the analyzed existing instruments relate to the aviation and navigation industries. Another 16% are related to transport safety.
Earlier, the IWG reviewed and formulated proposals to abolish or optimize more than 70% of state regulation instruments within the competence of the Ministry of Economy and more than 80% under the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Natural Resources.
The Interagency Working Group on Accelerated Review of State Regulation of Economic Activity was established by the Government on January 13, 2023. The Interagency Working Group includes, among others, representatives of the Ministries of Economy, Digital Transformation, Environmental Protection and Natural Resources, Justice, Finance, as well as the State Regulatory Service.
Experts from the Better Regulation Delivery Office, the Economic Recovery Center, the Center for Economic Strategy, EasyBusiness, and USAID CEP are also involved in the work of the Interagency Working Group.
