By this decision the Government allowed to more than twenty State supervisory (control) bodies to carry out state supervision (control) activities in the field of economic activity during 2018.
Thus, the following State supervisory (control) bodies as well as their territorial subdivisions are not covered by moratorium in 2018: the National Bank of Ukraine, the National Television and Radio Broadcasting Council, the National Regulatory Commission on Energy and Utilities of Ukraine , the National Securities and Stock Market Commission of Ukraine, the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine, the State Fiscal Service of Ukraine, the State Architectural and Building Inspection of Ukraine, the State Aviation Service, the State Audit Service of Ukraine, the State Environmental Inspection, State Service on Export Control of Ukraine, State Administration on Medicinal Products of Ukraine, Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Ukraine, the Public Service of Geology and Mineral Resources of Ukraine, the Public Service of Ukraine for Geodesy, Cartography and Cadastre, State Service on Labor of Ukraine, etc. The State Service of Ukraine for Food Safety and Consumer Protection and the State Emergency Service of Ukraine are excluded from the moratorium partly.
According to the Government, on its portal, such an approach to the formation of the list of State supervision (control) bodies is used to ensure the development of entrepreneurship, as well as to ensure control over the most vulnerable and risky areas of public relations and fulfilment of international legal obligations of Ukraine. Whether the withdrawal from the moratorium under the current economic conditions of such a wide range of State supervision and control bodies to facilitate the development of entrepreneurship the experience will show but now businesses have to be prepared for possible routine inspections and ensure the professional legal support for such inspections.
