The prime minister of the Russian Federation, Dmitry Medvedev, has signed a Resolution of the Government of the Russian Federation on a reduction of the list of administrative procedures in construction.
As Construction.ru reported via the government press service, at a meeting with ministers, Dmitry Medvedev reminded them that in the Doing Business rating, on such indicators as obtaining a construction license, Russia has significantly improved its position. "But we shouldn't stop - we have to go further in trying to facilitate the work of builders, to make this work less formal, less bureaucratic", he said.
According to the Deputy Prime Minister, Dmitry Kozak, “At the moment, companies dealing in housing and commercial real estate shouldn't agree on a number of documents on the equipping of a water supply. Cancellation of this procedure will allow us to reduce the time needed to obtain a construction license by 30 days. But at least 40 more procedures are superfluous and complicate construction”, he said. It is planned that they will be cancelled before the end of the year.
