Moscow issued more than 7.6 thousand construction and occupancy permits via Internet
7629 construction and occupancy permits were issued online in Moscow since 2013, when the service started to be available in electronic format.
Nowadays Mosgosstroynadzor (Moscow State Construction Supervision Committee) provides three state services online namely issuing of construction and occupancy permits, as well as certificates of conforming compliance of the constructed buildings with the norms and rules (ZOS).
The term for consideration of applications submitted via the portal of state services does not exceed 10 days, in case of getting ZOS it amounts to 5 days. The service desk of Mosgostroynadzor is based on “one stop shop” principle; it is equipped with workstations, where specialists provide assistance in submitting necessary documents.
In 2015 a new electronic service was launched – developers can submit notifications on commencement and completion of construction and installation works via the portal of state services.
For the moment developers have submitted 1066 e-notifications on commencement and 1038 on completion of construction works. As it was stated by the Mayor of Moscow, Sergey Sobyanin, the number of users who prefer electronic services is constantly growing.
“We are actively working for the city informatization and developing municipal e-services,” said Sergey Sobyanin.
He stressed that the transfer of state services to electronic format prevents corruption in construction industry.
Transfer of state services in construction industry to electronic format is an important step in reducing administrative barriers. This is a time saver for developers. The applicant does not need to collect a huge amount of documents: all of them are at the disposal of government agencies and are transmitted via the base information register. There, on the portal of state services, an applicant can track the progress of consideration of his appeal.
Developers can take part in online seminars on provision of state services in electronic format. Seminars are free of charge.
