State Agency of Architecture, Construction and Housing and Communal Services
The State Agency for Architecture, Construction and Housing, and Communal Services under the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic (Gosstroy) considered several regulatory acts in construction, approved and put into effect by Gosstroy.
Over the first four months of 2019, Gosstroy has issued 199 certificates of product compliance with the safety requirements established by technical regulations. The issued certificates are included in the Unified State Register of Issued Certificates of Conformity.
According to the State Expertise Department of Gosstroy, the procedure for obtaining permits for construction has been simplified. “Single Window” has been re-introduced in Gosstroy in the new format. The amendments on fire, environmental, industrial and other examinations have been introduced to the regulations. It takes about 170 working days to receive them, which negatively affects the attraction of investments.
Construction companies can now hand over all documents to the single window, and Gosstroy experts will simultaneously conduct an examination. After that, the applicant can receive documents. As a result, the deadline is reduced to 30 days, Gosstroy reported.
The new system will eliminate contacts between officials and citizens, which tremendously helps to reduce the corruption component.
