MPs approve amendments to the law “On mandatory insurance of civil liability of the transporters”
The document was prepared by a group of deputies based on the results of the control and analytical studies.
The draft law was developed taking into account the experience of foreign countries. So, in the legislation of the Russian Federation, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, the insurance contract is drawn up for a period of up to one year, and an insurance policy is issued separately for each vehicle.
In the course of its preparation for the second reading, a working group was created consisting of deputies of the Legislative Chamber of the Parliament, representatives of ministries and departments, civil society institutions, practitioners.
In addition, the draft law is laid out on the personal pages of deputies in social networks for a broad discussion, which allowed to take into account the opinions and suggestions of voters-subscribers.
It was stressed that, in accordance with the draft law, legal entities providing commercial transport services for the transportation of passengers and their property, whose activities are subject to licensing, are entitled to conclude mandatory insurance of civil liability of the transporters for a period from three months to a year.
The addition of this provision allows carriers to exclude unnecessary costs for the conclusion of the insurance contract before the expiry of the licenses, the cancellation and re-registration of licenses.
Adoption of this law will create conditions for carriers providing services to transport passengers on licensed transport.
