The procedure for issuing licenses and permits has been simplified

On 09.01.2024, the President signed a decree “On measures to reduce mandatory requirements in the field of entrepreneurship and simplify licensing and permissive procedures.” The decree was developed by assessing the impact of regulation of the licensing and permissive system and adopted by the Ministry of Justice.

According to the document, from March 1, 2024, 16 types of licenses and permits will be canceled, including:

– 7 types of permits will be completely canceled (for example, a permit for the transportation of goods will no longer be required when entering into the Register of Customs Carriers);

– 6 types of permits are canceled by unification;

– the permit for the export of export control objects and the license for the export and import of special goods will be combined into one permissive document;

– 3 licenses and permits will be replaced by a notification procedure (for example, it will now be possible to engage in travel agency activities without obtaining a license);

It will be allowed to remotely evaluate applicants using video communication when issuing a license or permit.

The requirement to have a reserve in the safe tourism fund in the amount of 15 thousand US dollars for the implementation of outbound tourism will be abolished.

From now on, legal entities can independently choose the places of technical inspection of the vehicle belonging to them (until today, a technical inspection was carried out in places designated by the internal affairs bodies).

With the introduction of the above innovations, it is expected that about 350 billion soums will save the expenses of entrepreneurs.
