Russians will be exempted from administrative responsibility for non-compliance with mandatory requirements, which will lose their force within the framework of the "regulatory guillotine". The senators approved the corresponding law at a plenary session of the Federation Council on February 17.
Amendments are made to article 24.5 of the Code of Administrative Offenses "Circumstances precluding proceedings in the case of an administrative offense." According to them, they will not be held administratively liable for non-compliance with the mandatory requirements of legal acts, which should be canceled as part of the implementation of the “regulatory guillotine” mechanism.
Russia is currently undergoing a reform of control and supervisory activities designed to facilitate doing business in the country - the “regulatory guillotine”. As a result, legal acts that hinder the development of the economy should be revised.
The new regulation should come into force on January 1, 2021. Prior to this, the Cabinet of Ministers should cancel a number of legal acts of the Government, federal departments, executive and administrative bodies of state power of the RSFSR and the USSR, containing requirements, the implementation of which is assessed during state control or supervision. The Cabinet of Ministers has already canceled more than 3.5 thousand outdated documents.
