Beginning from 1 January 2009 the Russian authorities have ceased issuing licenses for construction, design and site surveying all over the Russian soil. Instead they have introduced the institute of self-regulated organizations (SRO). Now a company cannot obtain a permit for continuation of its professional activities — permit to types of work — unless it has become a member of a self-regulated organization.
Basic documents governing SRO activities:
Federal law No. 315-FZ “On self-regulated organizations” enacted on 1 December 2007;
RF Federal law No. 190-FZ of 29 December 2004 “Urban Planning Code of the Russian Federation”
Regional Development Ministry’s Regulation No. 624 of 30 December 2009 “On approval of types of site survey works, preparation of design documentation, construction, reconstruction and repair of capital structures, which affect safety of the infrastructure”
RF Government Decree No. 207 of 24 March 2011 ”On minimum criteria to meet for a self-regulated organization to issue permits for the work on hazardous and highly technical construction projects that affects safety of these facilities”
Earlier issued licenses for site surveying, design and construction of buildings and structures will be valid until 1 January 2010. Upon that date the company will not have the right to officially conduct certain types of activities unless it has the permit granted by a self-regulated organization (SRO).
