The Ministry of Economic Development and Trade has suggested limiting the number of inspections carried out by the Ukrainian State Inspection for Consumer Protection, based on the extent of risk and the risk evaluation criteria. To this end, the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade has prepared a drafted Cabinet Resolution, according to Serhiy Litvinenko, Deputy Director of the Trade Development Department of the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade, the Information-Analytical Bulletin of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine informs.

This measure would allow considerably reduce the regulatory burden on business, simplify the procedure and frequency of the scheduled actions of the government supervisory authorities, and contribute to efficacy of working relations between the State Inspection of Ukraine for Consumer Protection and business entities.

“If the procedure developed by the ministry is approved, it will ensure a more effective implementation of the rights of consumers, protect the consumer market from hazardous, low-quality, adulterated or counterfeit goods,” Litvinenko said.  

The document was developed under the National Action Plan for 2013 on implementation of the Economic Reform Program for 2013-2014 “Prosperous Society, Competitive Economy, and Effective State.”

The government’s economic reform program envisions, in particular, introduction of remote checks that will not draw businessmen away from their main business – profit making. Thus today, over 81% of cash registers are connected to the Cash Registers Data Storage and Collection System of the Ministry of Revenue and Duties, that is, 197,000 cash-register equipment units.
