On July 1, 2013 a Code of Civil Defense of Ukraine № 5403-VI, adopted by Parliament on 02.10.2012, entered into force and completely replaced the licensing system of business start up on declarative. This means that now instead of permission to start up any business activity it is necessary to obtain a declaration about accordance material and technical base of enterprises fire safety requirements.
