The bill establishes that those responsible for dangerous products are the manufacturer and importer, not a dealer.
The Verkhovna Rada adopted a bill to reduce the pressure on business by the authorities for market surveillance.
“Today, the authorities for market surveillance very bad protect Ukrainians from dangerous products, and the inspector instead of having to check and prevent, punish. We need, finally, to streamline the system of market surveillance for non-food products. I want to change the philosophy: state market surveillance inspector must check not a business, and dangerous products. His task is not to put pressure on business and entrepreneurs, and to eliminate the danger,” – said the MP Pentasa Roxolana, one of the authors of the bill.
The bill sets out that the first fact of violation, the inspector shall provide recommendations for their elimination and for repeated violation to impose a fine. In addition, you will set clear deadlines for inspections, to exclude the possibility of tightening, and the boundaries of the powers of the inspector. Expressly prohibits inspections of products other kind, except that specified in the direction for review.
“We’re responsible for dangerous products are the manufacturer and importer, not a dealer. This bill is the last step towards signing of an agreement on conformity assessment between Ukraine and the European Union. This so-called “industrial bezviz” – summed up Pentasa.
The document also proposed to increase penalties to strengthen accountability for output with the violation of its security.
