Attendance of a lawyer at inspections of the state authorities

Pravova Dopomoga Law Firm provides full legal support of any actions of the regulatory authorities and law enforcement bodies in respect of the Client as a representative of the latter, including visiting the inspection authority and the Client for checking the documents and powers of inspectors, direct supervision of the process of state control measures, as well as participation in the preparation of documents on the results of inspections or other actions carried out in the Client’s office, as well as in the office of the investigator, inspector, expert, specialist, employee of the regulatory authority and law enforcement body.

This service includes the analysis of the notification of the scheduled activities of the state regulatory authority (inspection, audit, etc), received by the Client, with regard to the legality and compliance with the terms of receipt by the inspected, as well as come to the Client (office, warehouse, production place, etc.) to meet with the inspectors and to directly participate in the activities carried out in respect of the Client - until the end of these actions and documentation of the results of the activities.

It’s worth noting that part 4 of Article 4 of the Law of Ukraine “On the Basic Principles of State Supervision (Control) in the Sphere of Economic Activity” provides that only laws establish:
  • bodies authorized to exercise state supervision (control) in the sphere of economic activity;
  • types of economic activity which are subject to state supervision (control);
  • method of supervision (control).

The regulatory authority is not entitled to exercise state supervision (control) in the sphere of economic activity unless the law expressly authorizes it to exercise such supervision in any sphere of economic activity and determines the powers of such authority when exercising the control.

Thus, before allowing the regulatory authority to come to your company, you should first study whether such regulatory authority is authorized to carry out the inspection of the respective types of economic activity and, most importantly, whether the law determines the method of inspection to be carried out by such authority and empowers such authority to carry out inspections, audits, discovery of documents, etc.
