Denis Karimov, serves as Counselor for Administrative Law to the Deputy Head of the Intellectual Property [IP] Committee of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs. In his role as Counselor, Mr. Karimov has worked extensively in Administrative Law in the Russian Federation and researching ways to enhance its effectiveness, timeliness, and predictability.

Based on this research, Denis offers his observations and recommendations in a series of papers [links to those papers listed below] on these important legal and commercial issues.

Denis Karimov:

"The Russian central government continues to exert great influence over administrate law and procedure across the Russian republics, regional, municipal, and other levels of government. Within this central influence unfortunately, no unified standard of its regulatory control has been defined and codified. The result of this uncertainty between legal predominance and regulatory authorities, is that many conflicting laws regulating the same agency have been created and maintained, often granting different rights for persons participating in similar or different procedures."

Due to the quantity of non-unified administrative law procedure, the opportunity for possible violations or inconsistencies of rights may occur. Likewise weak, non-unified control by the higher authorities exacerbates this condition. While appeals to higher officials are very popular, they are not often effective.

Denis Karimov promotes his observation and reform recommendations of the two laws that could solve for these issues. First, establish a unified code regulating central and sub-national government’s authorities in related matters. Second, he establishes a hierarchy of administrative law system allowing for legal review of administrative decisions to higher authorities. Lastly, he offers an additional remedy to the courts to increase the central government's authorities of the executive branch of law, and thus increasing the effectiveness of the court and speed of procedure.

SCHEMATIC OF CURRENT ADMINISTRATIVE LAW PROCEDURE AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR REVISIONS



Schematic displaying the current flow of administrative law procedure in the Russian Federation, as well as the key organizations involved, their roles, and interactions.  This diagram also provides nominal descriptions of reform recommendations.



COVER LETTER OVER VIEWING ADMINISTRATIVE REFORMS


The administrative reform currently supported is focused on creating appropriate ways for the interaction of powerful and powerless entities by way of deregulation of administrative legal relations and by reducing administrative barriers, burdens and systemic pressure.

The issues of 
administrative (departmental) revision and judicial control of administrative acts carried out on complaints of individuals and legal entities are not considered independently.  Separate mechanisms are introduced within the framework of administrative procedures for the implementation of certain functions of state control (supervision) and public services.  Review and sensitivities to centralization and bureaucracies are examined.



PROPOSALS FOR IMPROVEMENT OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF ADMINISTRATIVE REVISION


These proposals for improvement of the quality of administrative revision (control) of various law enforcement administrative acts (hereinafter referred to as administrative acts), as well as actions (inaction) (hereinafter referred to as administrative revision), are based on the results of our own practice of resolving administrative and legal conflicts and disputes between powerful and powerless entities, based on the specifics of the Russian Federation – the central position of the executive branch in the system of separation of powers; they are aimed at increasing trust in the activities of public administration in general and the status and role of the Ministries in particular.



CONCEPT OF THE LAW ON THE UNIFORM STANDARD OF PUBLIC MANAGEMENT

Observation and suggestions to aid in re-shaping, for the benefit of the Russian Federation,  a uniform standard of administrative process.  This would include a re-review of the patchwork of regulations to unify and strengthen a single streamlined procedure; to re-review focus of authorities between central government or sub-national inputs; re-review of the legislative, court, and bureaucratic processes in attempts to ultimately revise and maintain a more uniform and efficient system of administration law procedure.
