Moratorium on scheduled inspections of SMEs in 2022

LEGAL DIGEST, NEWS \ 28.09.2021

The Government of the Russian Federation has issued a Decree that extends the prohibition on conducting scheduled inspections of small and medium-sized business entities in 2022.

According to the document, when forming plans for control (supervisory) measures for 2022, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) included in the Unified Register of SMEs will be excluded from such plans. The moratorium will not be applied to inspections, the basis for which is:

  • causing harm or the threat of harm to the life and health of citizens, namely, the implementation of activities and (or) the use by organizations of manufacturing facilities of extremely high and high risks;
  • occurrence of natural and man-made emergency situations;
  • bringing the company to administrative liability for a gross violation less than 3 years ago and applying penalties in the form of disqualification or suspension of activity;
  • implementation of licensing activities by companies;
  • obligation of companies to undergo an audit of accounting reports.

The list of companies that were removed from the moratorium on inspections in 2022 largely repeats the list of those who were not covered by the moratorium in 2021.

We remind you that SMEs include companies that meet the following criteria:

 SMEAverage number of employeesBusiness income for the preceding calendar yearStructure of the issued capital
