MIL-OSI Russia: The powers of inspectors of the state fire supervision of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia have been expanded


MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –

The corresponding federal law was signed by the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin on June 11 this year. Changes to certain legislative acts of the Russian Federation were introduced in connection with the adoption of the Federal Law “On State Control (Supervision) and Municipal Control in the Russian Federation”. They are aimed at increasing the efficiency of the bodies of inquiry to establish the causes and perpetrators of fires.

In particular, the officials of the state fire control received the right to demand the presentation of identity documents of citizens suspected of committing a crime related to a fire, as well as to initiate a case against a citizen about an administrative offense in the field of fire safety.

In addition, employees of the state fire control of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia can call officials of organizations and citizens to obtain the necessary explanations and documents from them when checking statements and reports of crimes and incidents, as well as in case of administrative offenses related to fires.

Also, officials of the GPN have the right to request and receive from organizations, including medical, personal data of citizens killed or injured in a fire.

In addition, officials of the state supervision may require citizens to leave the fire zone without calling the police for this. First of all, this is necessary to ensure the safety of citizens, as well as to document the circumstances of the incident and preserve traces of the crime.
