12-11-2021 | 13:33

Maxim Shaskolskiy answered the questions of the association members and spoke about the change in the approaches to the regulation of entrepreneurial activity.

The Head of the Authority said that in 2021 the number of companies that have developed antimonopoly compliance increased by 20%. This demonstrates not only the interest of the Authority in further development of this institution, but also the interest from the business’ side. The introduction of compliance by business entities increases the level of competition in the country and makes the activities of companies more efficient through the introduction of a risk-based approach.

The implementation of the drafts Concept of Improving the Institute of Extended Responsibility of Manufacturers (ERM) and Importers of Goods and Packaging were also discussed in the framework of the meeting. The FAS Russia participates in the development and discussion of these drafts, since the implementation of the Concept should lead, among other things, to a reduction in the payment of citizens for services in the treatment of MSW. According to the Authority, the level of the environmental fee rate should be necessary and sufficient for subsequent waste disposal.

Maxim Shaskolskiy also spoke about the mechanisms of price regulation for certain medicines.

The Head of FAS Russia informed the participants of the event that the revised "fifth antimonopoly package" is planned to be considered at the meeting of the working group on the implementation of the "regulatory guillotine" mechanism in the field of competition development. The Authority made the document suitable for the digital economy reality and worked out the basic principles of conscientious behavior jointly with market participants and public organizations.

In conclusion, Maxim Shaskolskiy thanked the representatives of the European Businesses Association for their joint work and invited them to cooperate on other platforms, including within the framework of FAS Russia’s councils of experts.
