In the Ministry of Agrarian Policy, there was an interdepartmental discussion of the existing procedures and requirements for the construction of livestock complexes in order to develop common approaches to their optimization and simplification.
De-bureaucratization of licensing procedures is seen as one of the incentives for an investment recovery in this area.
The meeting was chaired by the First Deputy Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine Maksym Martyniuk, representatives of the Ministry of Agrarian Policy, the Ministry of Regional Development, the Ministry of Ecology, the State Service of Ukraine for Food Safety and Consumer Protection, the State Building Inspection, design institutes, livestock enterprises and the public.
"This year the state sends unprecedented 4 billion UAH to support livestock, most of which is envisaged for the construction of livestock complexes. The jointly developed algorithm should remove bureaucratic obstacles and speed up the process of commissioning such facilities, " says First Deputy Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine Maksym Martyniuk. He added that with the worked out and maximally simplified system of approvals, one can expect an increase in the interest of agrarians in the construction of facilities and the production of livestock products.
In Ukraine, there is an impressive list of mandatory building codes, sanitary rules and environmental requirements for agricultural buildings. Repeated introduction of changes to such requirements, as well as delay with the abolition of the old rules lead to delaying the processes and blocking the construction.
All suggestions of the meeting participants will be taken into account when approving the algorithm of actions in terms of simplifying the licensing procedures. In addition, in the near future, it is planned to hold joint regional seminars for agrarians in order to clarify the innovations.
