Insurers called the reason why they can not take away control over technical inspection

A draft law has been submitted to the State Duma, transferring control over technical inspection operators from the Russian Union of Motor Insurers (RSA) to the Federal Accreditation Service.

It was introduced by a group of senators from the Federation Council, who believe that the RSA is engaged in an “uncharacteristic” function for itself, which is why the problem of fictitious TO is not solved.

The RSA does not want to give the technical inspection and believe that the Union is successfully coping with the control – there are no complaints or complaints, all processes are automated.

In addition, the head of the RSA, Yevgeny Ufimtsev, notes that the transfer of the function of technical inspection accreditation to the state agency will require additional costs from the budget. Although, if the State Duma decides to transfer powers, insurers will obey and will work within the framework of the law.

There is no need to transfer powers now – the work has been adjusted, the RSA does not receive additional funds from the budget – all expenses are paid by the contributions that the operators pay. Ufimtsev believes that control over operators is just a function characteristic of the Union. After all, it is the insurers who are most interested in ensuring that the cars are in good working order.

The government opinion on the bill says that additional funds will be needed to perform the new functions of the Federal Accreditation Service. According to preliminary estimates, this is about 20 million rubles for the salary of new employees of the Federal Accreditation Service, who will “accompany the processes” in the field of maintenance.

Recall that today a diagnostic card (inspection) is required for buses, trucks and taxis. For owners of cars and motorcycles, a document is needed only when registering a car and when making changes to the design.
