Anti-corruption legislation

Adoption of the Law of Ukraine №1700-VII “On Prevention of Corruption” dated October 14, 2014 is the starting point in the separation of a whole set of regulations and creation of a special structure to combat corruption. However, the legislative norms in this area have not become stable. Anti-corruption legislation is amended from time to time. This causes difficulties primarily for e-declarants – people for whom compliance with anti-corruption legislation is a condition for maintaining their position, reputation, honor, and sometimes freedom.

Stages of full verification of the e-declaration by authorized persons of NAPC:

  1. The declarant receives a request to provide explanations and copies of documents in support of such explanations. This request is displayed in the declarant’s online cabinet.
  2. The subject of the declaration provides a response to the request. Such a response can be sent by e-mail to info@nazk.gov.ua/ by mail or delivered directly to NAPC
  3. After the end of the check, NAPC notifies the declarant of its results in writing. Decision on the results of full check is sent by post with a note of delivery. Also, this information is published on NAPC’s official website.
  4. In case of violations, an administrative protocol is drawn up. This document is sent to the declarant for information. The declarant has the right to file appropriate objections. In some cases, the law enforcement agencies are sent submission about the presence of signs of a criminal offense in the actions of declarant.
  5. The materials of the case are submitted to the court.
