A Cabinet sitting was held 02.05.2013, chaired by Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan. During the sitting the Prime Minister highlighted the fact that the number of planned inspections has been reduced eightfold over the five-years: “This is an important achievement from the perspective of inspection reform. Despite a sharp fall in checks and inspections, we can see that the risk-based oversight is justified as it has led to increased effectiveness. Targeted checks are carried out in the most at-risk areas and facilities, and we can see that the eightfold decline in the number of checks has led to increased recovery volume, especially in 2011. This means that that in 2013 we will have to choose the right targets to provide for sizeable recoveries.
