The Government of Ukraine has received the support of a business community regarding an initiative to liquidate the State Ecological Inspection of Ukraine and to set up a qualitatively new authority with a new staff instead. A letter was sent to the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine from the European Business Association.

Members of the Association consider it impossible to retrofit the structure, which throughout multiple years has actually discredited itself and has negatively affected in certain cases an investment attractiveness of the country.

"The business community believes that the new government body to be established instead of the incumbent State Ecological Inspection will have new quality functions and powers, based on up-to-date practice, while the new staff of such a structure will be formed on a transparent basis with participation of the public and business", the letter from the Association reads.

The Government of Ukraine emphasized in response that no reform would take place without relevant control of the society and the business community, inviting experts of the Association to join the process of creating a new body. The Cabinet of Ministers promises the new Environmental Inspection shall carry out preventive activities instead of fulfilling punitive functions, thus promoting less verifications and improving their efficiency.
