On 30 November 2015, the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine adopted a plan of state inspections to be carried in 2016 (Order No. 1553). This step is expected to make the life of Ukrainian businesses easier and more predictable.

The plan contains information on the more than 13000 companies to be inspected in 2016 and information on the state bodies carrying out the inspections. It also contains the inspection schedule. What is most important is that each company will only be inspected once in 2016. The planned inspections should be completed within 15 working days or within five working days (for small business enterprises).

All state inspection bodies will follow the plan adopted by the Ministry and bring their own inspection schedules into line with the plan.

By adopting the plan, the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine is aiming to decrease the pressure on businesses caused by state inspections. The business entities will now know in advance the exact date when the inspection will be performed.

The 2016 state inspections plan is available online on the web-site of the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine.
