Since 2017 the authorities will ensure that the new laws affect the cost of doing business: the first time the government will assess the actual impact on business law, governmental and departmental regulations. Project evaluation plan in force regulations issued by the Ministry of Economic Development on regulation.gov.ru portal.

Earlier, the Economic Development Ministry has already drawn attention to the problem of “normative printer”: regulations offered more, and serious analysis of them are not worth counting costs for the government and businesses from taking new instrument is often not made.

Now the Ministry of Economic Development proposes to examine a total of 129 documents of 46 existing laws, government regulations 42 and 41 departmental regulation. All they directly affect the interests of business - claims to these documents by business organizations as well as companies - players of different sectors of the market as a basis for evaluation of the project plan, seen from the Ministry of Economic Development of the document. At the same time 68 different instruments (37 of them - the Federal Law) in the draft plan are not included - in particular, due to lack of applicants’ argument position follows from the explanations of the Ministry. For example, suggested that such important business laws as the law of the development of small and medium-sized businesses, on the protection of competition, bankruptcy.

Arguments business, which fell under the action of various instruments adopted in recent years are presented in the Economic Development Plan. A number of reviews of the business organization and the applicant companies have estimated the costs, which they are required to implement these regulations. The sum of these costs exceed 2.6 trillion rubles., RBC calculated.

The largest spending expect the electricity industry in the coming years, it follows from the calculations “Council of Energy Producers”. Due to the introduction of the law on environmental requirements for the early equip thermal power equipment, which reduces the negative impact on the environment, the cost of the owners of Russian TPP protections may reach 1 trillion rubles. “To mobilize such huge funds over the next five years for investment is not possible”, - wrote the applicants. The refusal of the conversion of thermal power station will cost the energy sector as expensive: they will have to pay a higher fee for a multiple negative impact on the environment.

Another 33 billion rubles. by 2025, will cost power companies approved by government decree in December 2014 the rate of payment for the use of water from sources under federal ownership, also wrote “Council of Energy Producers”. These rates - an obstacle for the development of hydroelectric power plants, and in addition, they have a negative impact on such important sectors as agriculture, industry, housing and communal services, the applicant notes. And calls to lower interest rates: “In a crisis, the market of credit and a sharp decline in the ruble exchange rate & lt; … & gt; additional fiscal burden in the form of water rates and water tax excessively inflated, which in no way stimulate business economical use of water resources, and only increases the cost of the production cycle. ” In general business expenses for compliance with the requirements to reduce the negative impact on the environment amount to “hundreds of millions of rubles,” predicts Commerce and Industry (CCI), it follows from the Ministry of Economic Development of the document.

Only one company LUKOIL to 25 billion rubles. cost legal requirement to install additional systems alerting the public, the company estimated. And these costs will be meaningless, follows from the Review of Petroleum: You can inform the public about the spread of radioactive or chemical clouds - it allows you to make arrangements for evacuation, but the accident at the explosion sites (such LUKOIL is) so spontaneous and fleeting, that exclude the possibility of early public warning .

28 billion rubles. It required from small breweries and other alcoholic beverages, and beverages from vendors such EGAIS for connection to the system. The law does not require it, but in practice the regulatory authorities are forcing businesses to connect to EGAIS to record volumes on related activities (procurement, supply, etc.), writes “Support of Russia”. In addition to one-time expenses for connecting the organization to assess and spending on maintenance of the system - 9.5 billion rubles. per month (114 bln. annually).

The Water Supply Act obliged the subscribers to January 1, 2019 to establish local treatment facilities for wastewater treatment before discharge into the public sewerage system, writes the RSPP. He estimates that the legal norm as a “compelling” business to invest in treatment facilities. According to the RSPP estimates, stricter standards that determine the amount of compensation payments for exceeding the requirements for the composition of wastewater, entail additional costs for every small business to 14 million rubles. per year for the average food companies - up to 50-70 million rubles. per year, for a large - from 100 million to 500 million rubles. annually.

Among the laws overestimate offered by the Economic Development Ministry, the law may be that the payment for the harm caused to roads of heavy trucks (Law on the board in the “Platon” system). On it received a lot of complaints, it follows from the Economic Development Ministry reports. In particular, a significant increase in the cost of transportation and increasing the cost of the delivery costs of agricultural production because of this law and the CCI informed the RSPP.
