Legislative draft on terms of issuing construction permits passed the first reading in the State Duma
On Friday, March 18, the State Duma adopted in the first reading a bill which establishes the terms of request and receipt of the documents required for obtaining construction permits for developers, reports Interfax-Real Estate news agency.
The bill “On Amendments to the Construction Code of the Russian Federation” establishes a 3-day period, during which the officials authorized to issue construction permits, must request relevant documents from government agencies in electronic format.
The same timeline is set to accede to a request: state agencies will have 3 days to send required documents to the official who issues construction permits.
These terms are not set in the current Construction Code, and this fact causes unreasonable administrative overheads, noted the authors of the document.
The document is aimed at eliminating administrative barriers and reducing the costs of business in obtaining construction permits.
