Within the project on “Protection of the Rights of Entrepreneurs in the Russian Federation from Corrupt Practices at the Municipal Level” - PRECOP II the Council of Europe organised a training on “Risk-based approach to inspections at regional and municipal levels in the Russian Federation” on 6-7 June 2019 in Vladivostok, Russian Federation. The event brought together over 30 participants: representatives of the main beneficiary institution of PRECOP II - the Offices of Regional Business Ombudspersons and federal, regional and municipal inspection authorities from six project’s pilot regions, including the host region of Primorsky Krai.
This was the forth and last targeted activity in a series of trainings aimed at enhancing knowledge and competences of relevant inspection authorities to efficiently conduct inspections in line with the latest developments in the Russian legislative framework, including new draft law on state control (supervision) and municipal control, and applicable international standards and good practices.
The training was a combination of presentations, group work and panel discussions of practical exercises and case studies specially developed by Council of Europe experts. The representative of the Ministry of Economic Development and Analytical Centre for the Government of the Russian Federation provided valuable input through several informative interventions.
The training allowed the participants to obtain relevant knowledge about the latest developments in the ongoing reform processes in the field of inspections, and to contribute to further improving the way inspections are organised and conducted.
