One-stop-shops for businesses to be launched in 2016

One-stop-shops for businesses to be launched in 2016

One-stop-shops providing public services to entrepreneurs are to be launched at the beginning of next year. Large-scale preparatory work is currently underway. These days a series of meetings are held to discuss the draft government resolution on the establishment of OSSs and the most convenient and simplified mechanisms for their operation.

This initiative is implemented in line with Presidential Decree UP-4725 dated May 15, 2015, "On the measures to ensure reliable protection of private property, small business and private entrepreneurship and remove barriers to their rapid development". The OSSs will start working no later than January 2016 on the basis of the existing 193 inspectorates for business registration established under district (city) hokimiyats by a Government resolution.

These inspectorates will be transformed across the country and assigned with concrete functions and objectives. They will also have a clear mechanism to interact with public institutions through the currently developed system of electronic communication. The OSSs will be made sustainable for a long term prospective through well-thought financing measures.

The on-going work focuses on explaining the procedures for the OSSs to interact with the public, businesses and government agencies, determining the location of the OSSs, equipping them with modern technologies and staffing them with skilled specialists, while discussing other relevant issues. The Ministry of Justice, the joint project of the CCI and UNDP “Business Forum of Uzbekistan (Phase III)” and other stakeholders have been working on a regulatory framework that will provide solutions to the above issues. Service suppliers like ministries and other government agencies have proposed optimal approaches to provide their services to businesses.

Importantly, a number of public services will be rendered exclusively through OSSs. It is also proposed to prohibit direct requests made from entrepreneurs to public agencies and any demands of personal presence of or communicating to the applicants during the consideration of the applications for public services included into the special list of services provided exclusively through OSSs. In addition, due measures will be taken to forbid any restrictions on applications through OSSs based on territorial jurisdiction or other grounds.

The introduction of OSSs will enable the country residents to receive public services in one spot without the need to contact directly with various government ministries, agencies or departments. This will simplify significantly all administrative procedures to obtain permits and authorization for public service delivery to businesses, said Bahodir Bekov, manager of the joint UNDP and Chamber of Commerce of Industry project Business Forum of Uzbekistan (Phase III).

Representatives of government ministers and institutions providing their services through OSSs have attended a series of events carried out at the CCI and inspectorates on business registration under the hokimiyats in the Sergeli and Mirzo-Ulugbek Districts of Tashkent.
