Why do businesses need this?
Russia is carrying out a reform of the monitoring and oversight activities of its federal agencies with a view to lessening the fiscal and monitoring burden on businesses. The reform includes a range of measures, including the creation and launch of new online services and the development and updating of existing online services both for federal agencies and for legal entities and individuals via the government services portal.
"We need to dispense with routine inspections of businesses that pose no risk of harm. The time is ripe to make another major step forward by refraining on a permanent basis from inspecting any Russian businesses whose activities do not pose high risks of harm", declared Russian President Vladimir Putin at the Saint Petersburg International Economic Forum
"The reform of monitoring and oversight work requires a dynamic approach. Incomprehensible rules need to be rooted out, inspection procedures must be transparent, and businesses must be given proper feedback," said the Deputy Prime Minister and Chief of Government Staff Dmitry Grigorenko.
The planned measures to enhance digital access to information will enable businesses to obtain data from the state information system on potential violations in the circulation of products subject to digital marking and allow them to remedy any irregularities without adverse consequences in the form of administrative proceedings and fines.
The introduction of digitalised means of detecting potential irregularities will help businesses establish a dialogue with monitoring and oversight agencies and reduce the burden on businesses caused by inspections. The prompt detection and rectification of potential violations enhances discipline among good-faith businesses and facilitates communication with the authorities.
