The Expert Center under the Business Rights Commissioner in Russia has compiled a rating of regions in terms of administrative pressure on business. The press office of the government and the head of the republic reports that Udmurtia has entered to the top ten of business-friendly regions.
We tried to provide statistics that are usually hidden from prying eyes. Such a comparison should give rise to reflections on why control agencies behave so differently in different regions
Analysts rated 65 of 85 the country’s regions. They took into account the reduction in the repressiveness of control and supervisory activities, the effectiveness of introducing a risk-based approach, the circumvention of inspections or the proportion of fines imposed without inspections, the amount of imposed fines. The rating also includes data of Federal Service on Surveillance for Consumer rights protection and human well-being, Federal Environmental, Industrial and Nuclear Supervision Service of Russia, Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance, Federal Service for Supervision of Natural Resource Usage, Ministry of Emergency Situations, and housing inspections.
The authorities of Udmurtia associate success with the openness of government agencies for business. Often, businessmen receive answers to inquiries earlier than 30 days.
The interaction of control and supervisory bodies with businessmen is mostly lined up in a warning and explanatory format, and not punitive in Udmurtia. There is a good practice of working with inquiries of entrepreneurs in the republic
For example, the share of warnings from the total number of punishments was 16.7%, the national figure was 11.96% in Federal Service on Surveillance for Consumer rights protection and human well-being. The share of fines without inspections was 1%. It is equal to 20.7% in Russia.
Recall that the franchise portal will be launched in Udmurtia.
