“Regional subdivisions of the State Environmental inspectorate will be liquidated. And that’s great news!”, – the head of the State Environmental inspectorate of Ukraine, Andriy Malevany said on September 10th.
The relevant resolution was adopted at the Government of Ukraine session on September 9, 2020 (Resolution No. 802). According to the document, the District departments of the State Environmental inspectorate (hereinafter the “SEI”) will be created instead of the regional departments. Some of the units will be liquidated, some will be united.
► The territorial divisions of the State Environmental Inspectorate are being liquidated in Dnepropetrovsk, Zaporozhye, Kirovograd, Nikolaev, Odessa and Kherson regions.
► The following interregional territorial divisions of the State Environmental Inspectorate are formed:
- SEI of the Dnieper district (Dnipropetrovsk and Kirovograd regions)
- SEI of the Southern District (Zaporozhye and Kherson regions)
- SEI of the South-Western District (Nikolaev and Odessa regions)
The official website SEI (www.dei.gov.ua) explains that the reorganization is being carried out in order to reduce the costs of the SEI apparatus and increase its efficiency. We will follow the SEI news and hope that this reorganization will serve to improve the environmental situation in Ukraine.
The State Environmental Inspectorate of Ukraine is a part of executive authorities and implements state supervision (control) in the field of environmental protection, rational use, recovery and protection of natural resources.
