“Open-ended” terms of administrative services are cancelled — draft law #5454 is adopted as a whole


The draft law that was adopted as a whole finally cancelled the terms of providing administrative services during the quarantine. So from now on, quarantine will not be a reason to suspend these terms — they are obliged to deliver services in time.

On March 17, 2020, at the very beginning of the pandemic and quarantine in Ukraine, the Verkhovna Rada adopted the Law of Ukraine “On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of Ukraine Aimed to Prevent the Occurrence and Spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19)” #530-IX.

The above-mentioned law established that the period to apply for administrative and other services and the duration of providing these services determined by law should be suspended from the day when the quarantine was announced. From the date of quarantine termination, these terms should be extended, taking into account the time that has passed before their suspension.

That is, officials were allowed to set a deadline for consideration of documents to obtain a certain administrative service. However, due to the long quarantine duration, the terms of providing any administrative services have become virtually unlimited, and the documents submitted to obtain certain services have been considered for several months.

BRDO experts participated in the drafting of the law aimed at cancelling indefinite terms of the provision of administrative services.

So we are sure that it will make life much easier for both business and society!
