Decree of February 6, 2021 No. 121

The passage of goods and transport through checkpoints in the Arctic zone will accelerate thanks to the consolidation of the authority to carry out inspections to the customs authorities. The decree on this was signed by the Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.

The decision concerns various types of control (supervision): sanitary and quarantine, veterinary and phytosanitary. Prior to that, such inspections were carried out by Rospotrebnadzor and Rosselkhoznadzor. A similar mechanism was previously tested in the free port of Vladivostok and proved to be effective.

The decision will take effect in 180 days. During this time, customs officers will undergo the necessary training, and the checkpoints will be equipped with special equipment.

The adopted resolution is part of a wide range of measures to stimulate the socio-economic development of the Arctic. Previously, the entire Russian Arctic was declared a free economic zone, the residents of which can count on many preferences, including a reduction in tax and insurance premium rates, the application of the free customs zone procedure, and privileges on land lease.

The decision, approved by the Chairman of the Government, will reduce the costs of entrepreneurs and make doing business in the Arctic more comfortable.
