Ukraine has seen the launch of a new Building Activities Register and a Public Portal of the system. This is the first stage of the introduction of the Unified State Electronic System within the framework of reforming the urban planning sector of Ukraine.
“The SACI Register used to be a platform for corruption for many years. In contrast, the new Building Register is exclusively owned by the state. Undoubtedly, we will be able to prevent unauthorized access, inputting incorrect data and the emergence of corrupt schemes," commented Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Digital Transformation Mykhailo Fedorov.
The new Registry is protected and stored in the national provider of cloud services and data centers De Novo. From now on, each object will be entered in the Register with a unique identifier. That will allow one to link to the object all permits, urban planning and design documentation, information about construction participants, photos and other data.
Among the advantages of the new Register is the access to data on property rights and land through electronic interaction between registers.
Another advantage is automatic checks - the Register will not allow to register the object which does not correspond to legal criteria. And the ability to map the position of objects and conveniently display them by type. In addition, it integrates directories and registers, such as a list of certified persons, cultural heritage sites and hazardous sites.
It is significant that all documents from the very beginning of construction and before commissioning are created and verified by QR-code immediately in the Register.
The New Register, e-cabinet and Public Portal are all the components of a Unified State Electronic System. In general, the Unified System is a key element of urban planning reform. Its implementation will have a significant anti-corruption impact, as it will enable the eliminating of the human factor in the provision of services to citizens and businesses.
The next stage of implementation of the Unified System is the launch of Electronic services in the field of construction on the DIIA (Action – ed.) portal is planned in the near future. Ukrainians will have access to automated construction services for low-impact facilities (CC1).
The project is implemented in partnership with the Ministry for Communities and Territories Development, the Ministry of Digital Transformation, the State Architectural and Construction Inspectorate of Ukraine (SACI) and the Better Regulation Delivery Office (BRDO) with the support of USAID/UK aid "Transparency and Accountability in Public Administration and Services/TAPAS" project.
