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 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 on 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.
Some of the most important changes introduced by the Law on Amendments to the Law on Industrial Safety are summarized below.
II. AMENDMENTS INTRODUCED TO THE LAW ON INDUSTRIAL SAFETY
The Law on Amendments establishes the procedure of:
- application on sending of the project for approval;
- copy of the project;
- original of expert opinion on compliance of the project to the requirements of industrial safety.
The positive decision on approval of the project as well as the local project or motivated refusal in approval shall be sent to the applicant within 10 business days from the day of submitting of all documents.
The list of entities, engaged in hazardous industrial facilities and that are subject to knowledge assessment, henceforth consists of not only operating personnel and technical executives, but also personnel not connected with execution of works on the hazardous industrial facility.
The periodicity of knowledge assessment for personnel not connected with execution of works on the hazardous industrial facility is once every 3 years in accordance with the list, approved by the technical executive of the company, with preliminary training on eight-hour program.
Henceforth during the use of node points, details, devices, component parts and duplicate parts that are a part of technical devices, permit for use of technologies, technical devices and materials is not required.
The Law on Amendments excluded the following requirements:
The Law on Amendments represents a significant step towards improvement of the existing permitting system of the Republic of Kazakhstan. The realisation of this Law will result in reduction of quantity of licenses and permits. The exclusion of the requirements on obtaining of certain permits and approvals of state bodies in the sphere of industrial safety will simplify the procedure of carrying out economic activity for many companies in Kazakhstan.
