The Ministry of Economic Development has submitted a draft resolution to the Government of Russia, under which an experiment will be conducted on pre-trial appeal of decisions of control and supervisory authorities.
The EMERCOM, the Federal Service for Environmental, Technological and Nuclear Oversight of Russia and the Federal Service for Surveillance in Healthcare will take part in the experiment. These agencies account for about a third of the checks carried out under the federal state control. For example, in 2019 the Ministry of emergency situations conducted 260 thousand inspections, the Federal Service for Environmental, Technological and Nuclear Oversight of Russia -104 thousand inspections, the Federal Service for Surveillance in Healthcare -14 thousand inspections.
Complaints may be filed about decisions and actions within the framework of fire supervision, quality control and safety of medical activities, the circulation of medicines and medical devices, industrial safety supervision, energy supervision, and supervision of the safety of hydraulic structures.
A key feature of the experiment will be a paperless procedure for interaction between supervisors and controlled persons: a complaint may be sent via a Single portal of public services (functions). This will allow tracking the complaint movement, as well as reduce the time for its consideration.
To organize and monitor the experiment, the Ministry of Economic Development created a special working group under the leadership of state Secretary- Deputy Minister of economic development Alexey Khersontsev. It includes representatives of the Ministry of Economic Development, the Ministry of Communications, the Analytical Center under the Government and other agencies participating in the experiment. It is also planned to include representatives of major business associations in the working group.
The experiment will allow testing the system for pre-trial settlement of disputes between controlled persons and control (supervisory) bodies, analyze it and, if necessary, adjust the procedure for filing and reviewing complaints. The pre-trial appeal procedure itself is designed to reduce the administrative burden and legal costs of business. In the future, it will be implemented throughout the country as part of the implementation of the new law on control.
