Moskomekspertiza: State service on approval of PSTS to be launched in e-format in autumn
Two more state services will be available in e-format in autumn of 2016: validation of estimated value of capital construction projects and approval project specific technical specifications (PSTS) for preparation project documentation of capital construction projects, said Roman Maslov, Deputy Chairman of Moskomekspertiza (Committee of Moscow on the state examination of projects and pricing in construction) in his interview to STROIM PROSTO portal.
In his words, validation of estimated value is a mandatory stage of approval for facilities financed in whole or in part at the expense of the Moscow city budget.
“Until the end of the year the service will be available for applicants in electronic format on the portal of state services. As in the case of state expert examination of project documentation or engineering survey results, customers will be able to reduce time expenditures on the passage of state inspection,” noted Roman Maslov.
According to the official, this online service will be launched this autumn on the portal of state services.
“PSTS is the keystone of highly technical projects, it is impossible to validate a decision on safety and reliability of structures. PSTS represents special features of engineering surveys, design, construction, operation and dismantling of a certain object. This document is also required in cases where compliance with the existing regulations is not enough to fully ensure safety and reliability of a project, for example, the case of construction of the Metro facilities,” explained Roman Maslov.
He also added that upon the transfer of this service to electronic format a customer will be able to apply online for approval of PSTS, uploading project documentation to the portal of state services and eventually getting a letter on approval or denial to approve PSTS.
