Deputy Head of FAS Vitaly Korolev informed about it at a joint session of the State Duma Committees on Control and regulations, on Ecology and Environmental Protection, and on Housing Policy and the Housing-and-Utility Sector.

“FAS undertakes consistent and systematic efforts to deter tariffs in solid municipal waste treatment.  Tariffscan be decreased through logistic optimization and, as a consequence, reduction of the waste transportation costs [2], as well as narrowing the base for estimating profit of the companies involved in waste disposal [3]”, said Deputy Head of FAS.

FAS is clarifying the procedure for accounting the costs of depreciating faxed assets and intangible assets in tariff setting: it is now determined by their maximum useful service.

FAS is also determines the refund approaches for modernizing corporate fixed assets. Refunds to the facilities built with budgetary funds will be included in the tariffs only if the funds received are allocated for investment programmes.

Vitaly Korolev described the practice of antimonopoly and tariff regulation in solid municipal waste treatment.

“In 2019 FAS exposed violations of the Federal Law “On Protection of Competition” by regional operators in the Kursk and Novosibirsk regions. Executing the FAS order reduced the transportations costs of Kursk regional operator by 15.9 million RUB, which should have an impact on the size of the tariff”, said the speaker.

In 2018-2019 FAS checked the cap rates in solid municipal waste treatment in around tariffs 40 regions. Based on the inspections outcome, FAS issued orders which led to a considerable reduction of common tariffs for the services of regional operators.

For instance, the rate reduction in the Sverdlovsk region was 16.8 — 30.9%, in the Kirov region – 16.2%, in the Orenburg region – 11.9%, and in the Kostroma region – 10.9%.

The rates also went down in the Omsk region (and the waste transportation costs halved), in the Khanty-Mansiisky Autonomous District (by 3.6%) and in the Tyumen region (by 2.2%).

Several FAS orders issued to the executive bodies of the Lipetsk, Vologda, Novosibirsk, Kaliningrad, Volgograd, Kaluga, Pskov, Sakhalin and Chelyabinsk regions, the republic of Karachaevo-Cherkessia, Kabardino-Balkaria, Chuvashia, Kalmykia and the Perm territory.
