The State Duma of the Russian Federation in the first reading approved amendments to a number of regulations developed by the Ministry of Emergencies of Russia. The amendments relate to laws in the field of fire safety requirements, the state fire service, improving the activities of fire departments, as well as protecting the population and territories from natural and man-made emergencies.

Thus, the submitted draft law “On Amendments to the Federal Law” Technical Regulations on Fire Safety Requirements “excludes outdated and duplicate fire safety requirements, including for fire extinguishing equipment and personal protection, established by the technical regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union. The draft law clarifies the procedure for the development and submission of a fire safety declaration, specifies the procedure for duplicating a fire signal for socially significant objects in the fire department in automatic mode, without the participation of employees of organizations.

It should be noted that all these changes in the draft law are designed to reduce the risks and threats of fires, as well as reduce the administrative burden on legal entities and individuals.

One of the goals of the draft law “On Amendments to the Federal Law” On Fire Safety “in terms of improving the activities of fire departments” is to streamline the activities of private and departmental fire protection. The changes projected by the draft law will make it possible to clearly delineate their sphere of activity, areas of responsibility, as well as to ensure the necessary and residual level of fire safety of strategic objects of the economy.

The initiatives proposed by the bill will improve the safety of citizens and economic facilities, and the protection of their property from fires.

Amendments to the federal law on service in the federal fire service of the state fire service are aimed at improving the regulatory legal regulation of the issues of service by employees of the Federal Fire Service of the State Fire Service. The bill also provides for the conditions for the awarding of special titles.

In order to determine the specifics of making payments to foreign citizens and stateless persons affected by emergencies on the territory of the Russian Federation, amendments have been developed to the Federal Law “On the Protection of Population and Territories from Natural and Technogenic Emergencies”. When deciding on the specifics of making payments to foreign citizens, it seems appropriate to be guided by the principles of parity and protection of the rights of Russian citizens living abroad.
