Within the framework of the new program ”Digital Economy“ (the project ”Digital Government"), it is supposed to provide state and municipal services in electronic form (already half a phrase is ridiculous). A number of orders and resolutions have been developed to implement the project on our topic. In particular, on the use, certification and registration of small vessels. We will tell you about the use and registration in separate articles, but we will devote this one to certification.
So, we have two orders of the Ministry of Emergency Situations regulating the procedure and form of providing state certification services for the right to manage small vessels used for non-commercial purposes. Order No. 565 of 15.08.2021 - administrative regulations for the provision of state certification services for the right to manage small vessels used for non-commercial purposes. And Order No. 356 of 01.07.2021 - rules of certification for the right to manage small vessels used for non-commercial purposes.
The regulations and rules of certification, which entered into force on 01.03.2022, cancel similar orders 262 and 263 and carry some changes not only for inspection specialists, but also for service recipients. Let's try to figure out what and what impact they will have on the processes of obtaining, replacing certificates and the certification procedure itself.
Electronic certification complex:
The entire certification procedure is supposed to be carried out in electronic form. Starting from the registration for the exam through public services (the function was before, but now it has been fully integrated with the new certification complex) and ending with the result of providing the service - the formation of a registration record, about obtaining the right to operate a small vessel used for non-commercial purposes.
On the one hand, it is good and convenient (it could be if the developed software worked, the exam questions were correctly compiled, and from the responsible ministerial ranks, proper support would be provided for the transition process to a new order of service provision, but alas and ah! what we have, we have ...), on the other hand, the “electronic document flow” is still accompanied by the transfer of an unrealistic amount of paper, bureaucratic red tape and is radically not thought out.
