Russian President signed the Federal Law "On Amendments to Article 22 of the Federal Law on the development of the Crimean Federal District and the free economic zone in the territories of the Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol."
The corresponding document was published on the Kremlin website.
According to the document, the approval of the Crimea’s "executive authority" is no more required for unscheduled inspections, but at the same time the need for coordination with the Prosecutor’s Office remains.
“Federal law abolished the need for agreeing unscheduled inspections with the authorized federal executive body for carrying out various types of state control (supervision) and municipal control in the territories of the Republic of Crimea and the federal city of Sevastopol. At the same time the need for coordination with the prosecution authorities, as well as the deadline for conducting such inspections - five days – remains,” reads the document.
The federal law was passed by the State Duma of the Russian Federation on March 23, 2016 and approved by the Federation Council on March 30, 2016.
