THE STATE DUMA UNANIMOUSLY SUPPORTED FAS AMENDMENTS DESIGNED TO REDUCE ADMINISTRATIVE BARRIERS IN THE CONSTRUCTION SECTOR

13-06-2018 | 09:42

A draft law on expanding the rights of business for fast-track complaints in the construction sector passed the first reading

 

Since 2016, the antimonopoly authority considers complaints against the authorities and network companies in the construction sector under a “fast-track” procedure: within 7 - 14 working days, under Article 18.1 of the Federal Law “On Protection of Competition”. Today, however, actions of the authorities can be appealed under the “fast-track” procedure only on two grounds: breaching the time-frame for the procedures from the Exhaustive list* or requiring a procedure not included in the List.

 

FAS-drafted amendments add new grounds to Article 18.1 of the Federal Law “On Protection of Competition” to complain against the authorities to FAS under the fast-track procedure. It concerns unlawful refusals by the authorities to accept documents and applications / petitions as well as setting unreasonable requirements to the petitioners and their documents.

 

“The draft law is aimed at unifying the grounds for a fast-tack administrative appeal in urban development relations. It will accelerate and simplify the process of protecting the rights of businessmen. It should be noted that reduction of administrative barriers in the construction sector is one of the measures towards implementing the National Plan for Developing Competition in the Russian Federation**”, emphasized Deputy Head of FAS Rachik Petrosyan.
