К вопросу о качестве «регуляторной гильотины» (на примере лицензионных требований)
The article is devoted to the results of the implementation of the «regulatory guillotine» in Russia in 2020 when the government abolished about 11.6 thousand normative legal acts and documents, which were passed in modern Russia and the USSR. The article analyses the goals of the «regulatory guillotine» and the capabilities to achieve them. One of the tasks of the reform was to eliminate mandatory requirements that do not reduce the risk of causing harm. This task of the reform gave reason to believe that as a result of it there should be fewer requirements. However, what are the real results of the reform? The analysis of qualitative results of the «regulatory guillotine» is carried out, based on the updated licensing regulation to the certain types of activities in terms of changing licensing requirements. The authors analyse 52 licensing acts in areas to which the Federal Law of May 4, 2011 No. 99-FZ «On Licensing of Certain Types of Activities» is applied. Such an assessment of the «guillotine» makes it possible to conclude that only 1/4 of the licensing acts have become softer for entrepreneurs as a result of the «regulatory guillotine». In some cases, the «regulatory guillotine» even had a negative effect: 13 % of all licensing acts became more complicated for entrepreneurs.
