Deputies in the course of the plenary session considered legislative initiative of the group of deputies of the Committee on Agriculture, Transport, Construction, Natural Resources and Ecology. They suggested making amendments to the law “On licensing of certain types of activities”. The purpose of the law-in-draft is to support small organizations in the construction industry.
Today, a construction company, having a license for one subtype of activity, is obliged to maintain a large staff of specialists, despite the fact that some of them are involved in the implementation of construction work either at a certain stage or in isolated cases.
In practice, small construction organizations cannot support an expanded staff. In some cases, existing requirements are not feasible due to lack of staff.
According to Government representatives, such a legislative norm cannot be adopted, since there are complex facilities that only specialists who are in the staff of construction companies should build.
Deputies of the Supreme Council supported the initiative and adopted the law-in-draft in the first reading.
In addition, deputies of the Supreme Council considered the legislative initiative of the deputy Anton Onufrienko in the first reading. He proposed a number of additions to the Housing Code. Often a situation arises when a road passes over a piece of land under which utilities are laid. In order to change a pipe, it is necessary to remove the asphalt, and then restore the road. All this places a burden on the residents of a single cooperative. According to Anton Onufrienko, this state of affairs is unfair to them. Non-residents must bear the cost of repairing and maintaining these sections of the network.
Despite the fact that there is already a corresponding Government decree, it is impossible to implement it today due to technical reasons. It is difficult to assess the cost of a particular segment of engineering networks, to find out on whose balance they are located, how many years they have been operating, and what is their residual value. Due to such technical issues, the issue is still not resolved.
Deputies of the Supreme Council adopted the law-in-draft in the first reading.
