Long-awaited amendments to the resolution 1548 on deregulation in pricing were published


From now on, the regulation of prices and tariffs for the following services are cancelled:

* testing services for buses converted from other means of transport to confirm their compliance with safety requirements;

* the development of land surveying documents and the execution of land evaluation works as well as the registration of their results in electronic form (exchange file creation);

* the execution of land surveying works in case of free transfer of land plots to citizens of Ukraine in accordance with the legislation;

* services related to electronic digital signature services.

These innovations will reduce financial burdens for business. According to preliminary estimates, savings will amount to more than 6.5 million hryvnias.

“The cancellation of price regulation in these segments will allow to stop the simultaneous existence of state price regulation and free pricing. In addition, this decision will significantly reduce state expenditure on administering procedures, namely the implementation of control measures related to price regulation, by almost 18 million hryvnias,” the head of the BRDO’s Control and Supervision sector and one of the developers of approved amendments Volodymyr Holovatenko said.

According to him, such liberalization will generally help create competitive conditions in the relevant areas of economy and improve the investment climate. This initiative arose from a review of the regulation of issues in state price regulation conducted by experts of the Better Regulation Delivery Office and presented in the Green Paper “Analysis of State Price Regulation”.

This research allowed to apply a comprehensive and integrated approach in the further creation of an effective price stability system.
