As stated by the first Deputy Prosecutor General of Russia Alexander Buksman, currently the Supervisory authority “wraps” up to 50% of inspections of control bodies. Including unscheduled. Every year their number decreases by approximately 200 thousand. So, last year they were released more than 310 thousand entrepreneurs.
As reported “MK” the Ombudsman at small and medium business Victor Ermakov, currently the trend is to reduce the number of unscheduled inspections is obvious. “The Prosecutor General’s office, indeed, effectively monitors unwarranted audit and prevents. However, some officials are showing particular ingenuity in this matter. So, for example, the regulatory bodies are coming with the inspection on the complaint of a competitor or supposedly just a citizen living near a particular plant. However, as a rule, these claims have not been substantiated,” says Ermakov.
However, as stressed by the Ombudsman, it does not mean that the business needs to cool off. “All that concerns human life and health should certainly be checked. In this regard, better safe than no one noticed. However, sometimes validation is clearly not justified and the result has a business to run and even comes to bankruptcy. In such cases, officials should bear the financial and administrative responsibility”, — said the Ombudsman.
Therefore, according to experts, this issue is new restrictions on unscheduled inspections from the state office of public Prosecutor is necessary. “For example, you can create a mechanism where entrepreneurs report any unscheduled inspection to the Prosecutor General. That is, to create feedback. In this case, if the Prosecutor sees that this test has the signs of substance (the list of such criteria should be spelled out in advance), he communicates with the Agency that validates and makes request for justification,” — says the first Vice-President of “OPORA Russia” Paul Segal.
According to the Director of the Institute of contemporary economies Nikita Isayev, it is also possible to create a single Supervisory authority for the principle of one window. “Otherwise, it turns out that dozens of different services substitute for each other, especially in narrow business areas where emasculated the essence of control and leads to a simple accommodation of the supervisors on the “object”. It is no secret that entrepreneurs have even special rooms allocated for inspection”, — says “MK” Isaev.
It adds the expert, also, you should return to the redeployment of a substantial part of the powers of control to self-regulatory organizations of entrepreneurs. “The issue has long been on the agenda, but the result is yet another — these functions are tightly held for many state supervisors, for it is their bread,” Isaev stressed.Related posts:
