The List of Types of High-Risk Work and Machinery (Equipment) was reduced
The Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine "On Amendments to Decrees of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine No. 725 dated August 25, 2010, and No. 1107 dated October 26, 2011" came into force on February 8, 2018.
The Resolution amended some of the by-laws of Ukraine concerning the procedure for issuing permits for carrying out high-risk works and for the operation of high-risk machines, mechanisms and equipment.
Amendments significantly reduced the list of high-risk activities. In particular, work on storage and processing of grain, sawing blocks of natural stone, diving operations and others are not recognized as high-risk activities.
Part of these types of activities is transferred to the category of high-risk works that are carried out on a declarative basis, which greatly simplifies the carrying out business in these industries.
In addition, the Resolution reduced the list of types of high-risk machines, mechanisms and equipment, the use of which requires special permits.
