The General Prosecutor’s Office and the Federal Labour and Employment Agency (known by the Russian abbreviation “Rostrud”) have posted on their websites inspection plans for 2020. An organization may be placed on the list if three years have passed from the date of its establishment or from the date of the last scheduled inspection of it. Be sure to check whether or not your company has been listed.

In order to find out whether a company faces an inspection, it is necessary to specify the company’s (its taxpayer ID number, principal state registration number or name) in the search box of the unified register.

Any violation of the established moratorium means that the results of an inspection are invalid. However, the prohibition is not applicable if:

  • a risk-based approach is used to assign inspections (for example, inspections of the State Labour Inspectorate);
  • the organization is engaged in certain types of activities (for example, educational or medical);
