On January 26, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin announced at a government meeting that the permits previously received by enterprises had been extended until the end of 2023.
He noted that the decision concerns such areas as transport, ecology, communications, television and radio broadcasting, industrial safety, circulation of veterinary medicines and feed additives.
“No additional steps will be required from organizations, state bodies will make changes themselves,” Mishustin emphasized.
He added that the registration of licenses will be free.
At the end of December 2022, the Russian government extended the moratorium on business inspections until 2023.
In October, Mishustin noted that the Russian government intends to extend part of the business support measures during the sanctions period for the whole of 2023.
However, back in June, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the time had come to permanently abandon a number of inspections of Russian businesses, whose activities are not associated with high risks of harm. In particular, he demanded “not to bring under the article” a business that operates without licenses after their withdrawal by Western partners.
