In line with GRATA Law Firm’s practice of keeping clients informed of important legal developments that might influence their business, we would like to draw your attention to prospective changes in Kazakh legislation in connection with entry into force of the new Law on Amending Certain Legislative Acts Regarding the Improvement of the Regulatory Approval System.
On the 15th July 2011 the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan signed the Law on Amending Certain Legislative Acts Regarding the Improvement of the Regulatory Approval System (hereinafter – the “Law on Amendments”), which became effective from 30 January 2012.
The Law on Amendments amended 54 Kazakh Laws, including the Environmental Code, the Tax Code, the Land Code, the Code on Administrative Offences, the Law on Licensing, the Law on Architecture, Town-Planning and Construction Activity, the Law on Industrial Safety and many others.

II. AMENDMENTS INTRODUCED TO THE LAW ON LICENSING
The licensing of the following types of activity was excluded:
1) in the sphere of technical safety and
2) in the sphere of land development.
The licensing of the following most important subdivisions of activity was excluded:
1) in the sphere of industry:
2) in the sphere of use of nuclear energy:
