On 24 November 2015 the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted the law in relation to prohibition to make changes to the Unified State Register of Legal Entities and Individual Entrepreneurs (USR) on the basis of copies of documents.

In particular, the Law provides that changes to the USR in relation to the information on the legal entity and its constitutional documents shall be made exclusively on the basis of the originals (or notarized copies) of the resolutions of managing bodies of the entity. Previously it was possible to make such changes on the basis of the copies of relevant documents.
