On November 5, within the framework of the Second International Fire and Rescue Congress, a panel discussion was held on the transformation of the supervision of the Russian Emergencies Ministry.

“Today, the control and supervisory authorities face new tasks and challenges that require timely and deliberate decisions,” said Alexander Chupriyan, First Deputy Minister of Emergencies of Russia, preceding the discussion.

The event was attended by representatives of the Government Office of the Russian Federation, the Prosecutor General’s Office, the Ministry of Economic Development, the Ministry of Digital Industry, the Analytical Center under the Government.

The event was attended by experts in the field of fire safety from scientific and educational organizations, expert and business communities.

The work on the elimination of redundant, outdated and duplicating requirements in the field of fire safety, protection of the population and territory from emergencies and the safety of people at water bodies will be completed by updating a number of legislative acts.

“Within the framework of the“ guillotine ”, at the suggestion of the Russian Emergencies Ministry, 53 government decrees and 128 departmental acts establishing mandatory requirements were canceled. Instead, 9 Government decrees and 10 orders of the department were adopted, ”said Anatoly Suprunovsky, Deputy Minister of EMERCOM of Russia, Chief State Inspector for Fire Supervision of the Russian Federation.

In addition, in July this year, Federal Law No. 248-FZ “On State Control (Supervision)” was adopted, which comes into force on July 1, 2021. This is one of the basic laws that implement the “regulatory guillotine” mechanism. In order to bring the sectoral laws of the Russian Federation into compliance with it, the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia is actively involved in the development of the draft federal “satellite law” and a number of regulatory legal acts of the Government of the Russian Federation. Unlike the current regulation, from 2021, the risk category will be assigned individually to each facility, and not to a group of facilities, which will make it possible to individually determine the frequency of inspections. At the same time, entrepreneurs will be able to independently assess the assignment of buildings and structures in use to the appropriate risk category. As representatives of the business community note, as a result, it was possible to significantly reduce the administrative pressure on business.

Today, the department is actively using information technology in the implementation of supervisory activities and the provision of relevant government services. Thus, the EMERCOM of Russia has already developed and is currently being tested in the territorial bodies of an online calculator for determining the risk category for objects. Subsequently, the service will be posted on the official website of the department and available to all interested citizens. “The work on improving the control and supervisory activities continues by the department,” concluded A. Suprunovsky.
