The Resolution applies to the following types of the road transportation activities:

The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine determines the following criteria for risk assessment:

  • Category (type) of the wheeled vehicle;
  • Type of bus routes;
  • Mode of transportation;
  • Number of traffic violations (for the last 2 years);
  • Number of road traffic accidents related to the company’s activities (for the last 3 years);
  • Number violations of rules for dangerous goods and wastes transportation (for the last 2 years);
  • Number of violations of the requirements for drivers’ work and rest periods (for the last 2 years);
  • Number of violations of the human rights of persons with disabilities (for the last 2 years);
  • Number of violations of the licence conditions by the company (for the last 3 years).

The activity-related risk is determined in points, which are used to assess the risk levels:

0 - 20 points - negligible risk level;

21 - 40 - medium risk level;

41 - 100 - high risk level.

This means that companies with a high risk level will be subject to more frequent inspections in comparison to other companies with lower risk levels - once every 2 years; companies with a medium risk level - once every 3 years; companies with a negligible risk level - once every 5 years.
