The procedure of obtaining a permit for special water use has been updated
According to the EBA members, the Ukrainian Geological Survey (State Geologic and Subsoil Survey of Ukraine) doesn’t require the reporting form No. 7-ГР (groundwaters) (annual) in the conclusion for issuance of special water use permit.
It’s optional now – the company is free not to provide the document if it doesn’t have a special permit for subsoil use.
According to the legislation, filling out form No. 7-ГР (groundwaters) is applicable only to holders of special permits for subsoil use. Nevertheless, until recently, such a requirement extended to all enterprises that received a permit for special water use.
In March, the EBA Industrial Ecology and Sustainable Development Committee addressed the State Geologic and Subsoil Survey of Ukraine with a request to bring the procedure in line with current legislation, because companies were forced to spend extra time filing reports.
We are grateful to the State Geologic and Subsoil Survey of Ukraine for taking into account the comments of the business!
