Why us

We work all over Ukraine
Since most of our Clients are from outside Kyiv, we have developed a regional network for receiving certificates. This is very important, since without obtaining a certificate it is impossible to continue the licensing procedure for medical institutions and private medical offices.
Expediting obtainment procedure
Since the State Service Of Ukraine On Food Safety And Consumer Protection, as a general rule, does not conduct preliminary assessments of premises, it is common when, upon arriving at the facility, service officers find inconsistencies and the procedure is delayed until the problem is solved. With our help, you can properly prepare and obtain a positive conclusion from the first try.
Possibility of obtaining a turnkey examination act
In cases where the Client cannot or does not want to collect documents on their own, our lawyers will be able to help even at the preparatory stage. Thus, the Client’s participation will be minimized, and the result will be achieved within the shortest time possible.

We are ready to help you!

Why can I be denied an SES Certificate for my premises?

There are several reasons why you may be denied a Certificate:

  • Submission of an incomplete set of documents;

  • Inaccurate information in the submitted documents;

  • Non-compliance of the premises with the requirements of sanitary norms and rules;

  • Negative conclusion on the results of examinations and inspections.

It’s worth remembering that the State Service of Ukraine on Food Safety and Consumer Protection uses many regulations in the assessment of your premises and is guided in addition by the State Building Standards (construction standards), having developed their own point of view and practice of inspection of premises.

You may avoid rejection of an SES Certificate for the premises only if you have extensive experience of such inspections and certain skills of communicating with state authorities.

Clients usually contact us with a request to help get an SES Certificate for the basement, semi-basement, facilities where repairs are not completed, and in other contentious cases. We analyze each individual situation and offer the best option for achieving the Client’s goals.

Please note!
There is a list of activities that cannot be performed without an SES Certificate, such as the provision of medical services (except for the family doctor).

In case of absence of an SES Certificate for the office/premises you will face rejection of a license. And if the lack of the Certificate is detected during your business activity, you will face a fine of UAH 17,000 to UAH 34,000.

What do you need to know about the SES Certificate for the premises (Ukraine)?

Obtaining the Sanitary and Epidemiological Certificate (formerly known as an SES permit) is a necessary step that many entrepreneurs need to take to perform a certain type of activity within the law.

The process of obtaining the Certificate is troublesome and time-consuming: you will have to collect a considerable number of documents from various authorities, draw up some of them yourself, then submit them to the State Service of Ukraine on Food Safety and Consumer Protection or an expert institution. There are situations where you will have to stand in line and talk to principled officials.

Passing all these steps does not guarantee that you will reach the goal - the issuance of a positive Certificate by the State Service of Ukraine on Food Safety and Consumer Protection. But if your interests in this process are represented by trained professionals, the SES Certificate will be obtained in the shortest possible time with minimal effort on your part.

Answers to frequently asked questions

Is it always necessary to get an examination certificate for medical practice?

No, it is not. If your office or medical institution specializes exclusively in primary health care (the practice of family doctors), then in this case, an examination certificate is not necessary.
