Anti-Crisis Council works on improvement of inspection procedures
ALMATY. May 26. KAZINFORM /Dauren Zhailin/ One of the main issues scrutinized by the Anti-Crisis Council under the Government of Kazakhstan is improvement of inspections procedures, Anti-Crisis Council Vice Chairman Raimbek Batalov said at the National Business Forum-2009 in Almaty yesterday. “Programs on optimization of inspections procedures are known to have been run since the previous years. Unfortunately, no real results have been achieved yet. Today we hope that real business will feel this result. It was decided that the Private Partnership Law will regulate inspections. At present the Parliament is making amendments to 67 laws and 8 codes, which regulate inspections. If we complete this work before July 1, 2009, our business community will see immediate results", R.Batalov said. The second issue under consideration is improvement of the licensing system. According to Batalov, there have been formed 22 work teams consisting of representatives of public bodies and business entities who work on the issues of reduction of licensed activities, certification, and other authorizing documents. “It is very important there has been made the decision to transfer the licensing procedures to self-regulatory organizations. I believe we have good achievements soon”, the entrepreneur stated. As Batalov noted, the Anti-Crisis Council is also treating the question of land designated purpose. “Unfortunately, such problem exists in all the regions. At the last session of the Anti-Crisis Council the Prime Minister charged region akimats, and Astana and Almaty administrations to furnish within a week the actual procedures on this issue", he said. The Ministry of Industry and Trade and the Agency for Land Resources Management were charged to work out recommendations on optimization of land management. Another important issue is control over adoption of regulatory legal acts which negatively affect business environment. According to him, this issue was also studied by the Anti-Crisis Councilat during the last sitting.
