Inspections of state metrological supervision reduced

Inspections of state metrological supervision reduced

The government intends to reduce the number and frequency of inspections conducted by the State metrological service. The decree developed by the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine was approved by the Cabinet of Ministers, the Information-Analytical Bulletin of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine informs.

"The approval of this document will reduce the number and frequency of inspections by the state metrological service and update the criteria by which business entities in the field of metrology fall under the highest and medium group of risk," Igor Prassolov, Ukraine’s Acting Minister of Economic Development, has said.

According to him, it is planned to reduce the number of business entities that fall under the highest risk group. For example, companies that produce measuring equipment involved in the calibration of this equipment. These entities are to be moved into the medium risk group, which will thus reduce the frequency of inspections.

"The government will encourage bona fide business entities, who do not display significant violations, by reducing the frequency of inspections. These entities will be checked by 1.5 times less," said acting minister.

In fact, analysts say, the frequency of inspections of entrepreneurs of medium and low risk will also go down. If before these entities were inspected once or twice a year for the average-risk, and once in three years for small risk groups, in future, the frequency will drop to once every three and five years respectively.

According to experts, metrological supervision and control is carried out to verify compliance with metrological regulations: use of measuring equipment by manufacturers, measuring techniques, number of prepackaged products in packages.
