Uzbekistan: The Government is to propose 30 draft laws in 2017

The adopted Programme for the development of draft laws for 2017 includes 30 new draft laws.

The Programme includes draft law that would impose stricter liability on employers for breaching health and safety regulations and for other breaches of labour protection legislation.

One of the proposed draft laws would amend legislation regulating major hazard installations. The amendment would clarify that the procedure for the maintenance of the State MHI Registry is to be adopted by the Cabinet of Ministers.

Another proposed law would regulate liability for breaches of the existing Technical Regulations, since there is currently no legal mechanism for the enforcement of the provisions of Technical Regulations in Uzbekistan. 

The above mentioned draft laws are intended to be developed during 2017.
