Ministry of Construction completes bill on requirements for expert examination
The Ministry of Construction, Housing and Utilities of Russia has submitted to the Federal Government a revised bill raising the requirements for non-state expert examination.
The project has already been submitted to the government last autumn, but some provisions of it required further refinement, noted the press office of the Ministry of Construction of Russia, reports RIA “Novosti – Real Estate”.
The bill provides requirements toughening for individuals and organizations who aspire for the right of issuing conclusions of the expert examination of project documentation and examination results of engineering surveys.
The requirements for minimum work experience of non-governmental experts in this area will increase from five to seven years. “The bill introduces the expert’s responsibility for issuance of positive opinion in case of non-compliance of project documentation and engineering survey results with the technical regulations, up to the revocation of qualification certificate,” the report says.
The document also establishes the grounds for revocation of qualification certificates. In addition, the bill requires the maintenance of a unified state register of issued conclusions of state and non-state expert examination agencies.
Currently, there are about 8.5 thousand experts certified for the right to conduct and issue conclusions of expert examination of project documentation; 522 companies are accredited for state expert examination.
