About 2000 decisions expired – Justice Ministry
Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) -- All aspects of our life are regulated by legislative acts. To date, their number in the National Database of Legislation of the Republic of Uzbekistan is more than 35 thousand.
A large number of by-laws leads to duplication, discrepancies and inaccuracies in the legislation. This, in turn, complicates law enforcement practice, causing inconvenience in their use.
Consequently, you need to look through hundreds of documents to understand a particular issue.
Taking into account the urgency of these problems, the Ministry of Justice organized effective work to systematize legislation by reducing or, in other words, “cutting off” (using the “regulatory guillotine” method) outdated norms from the legislative base.
In particular, based on the proposals of the Ministry of Justice, in 2020, a Decree of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan was adopted, providing for the recognition of about 500 documents as invalid. Also, the other day the Government adopted a resolution on the abolition of 2000 documents of the Cabinet of Ministers.
Canceled documents are documents that have lost their relevance, contain one-time rules or are intended to be executed within a certain period of time.
Naturally, the pertinent question arises about the practical significance of the abolition of these documents, which have lost their relevance, that is, what is the positive effect for citizens and entrepreneurs. Systematization of legislative acts or, in other words, their reduction:
firstly, it gives an answer to the question of which document to use for citizens and entrepreneurs;
secondly, it reduces the costs associated with the use of legal information and the services of a lawyer;
thirdly, it helps to eliminate duplication and disagreement in legislation.
In short, the main goal of reducing legislation is to eliminate unnecessary bureaucratic procedures, reduce the regulatory burden on business, “rid” the legal framework of irrelevant and outdated documents, and ultimately facilitate the use of legislation by citizens and entrepreneurs.
The work initiated today by the Ministry of Justice to systematize legislation is the first step, and the measures begun in this direction will be continued. Currently, the ministry has embarked on the second stage of systematization of legislation, which involves the consolidation of legislation by industry.
