Problems of Interpretation of the Concept «Industrial Safety Requirements»

V.S. Goryunov, Managing Director, OOO «TEKHTSENTR», Angarsk, Russia


In the article the attempt is made to comprehend the concept of «industrial safety requirements» fixed in the legislation. There are significant contradictions between the rules of law in the field of industrial safety, as well as the difficulties of their observance and implementation in practice. Despite the indication in Federal Law № 116-FZ of July 21, 1997 «On Industrial Safety of Hazardous Production Facilities» that such industrial safety requirements are contained in the decrees of the President of the Russian Federation, such decrees are actually absent. The author investigates the legal nature of industrial safety requirements, their correlation with mandatory requirements established in other regulatory legal acts. He concludes that there are theoretical problems that create difficulties in establishing the true content of industrial safety requirements and their correct implementation. The congestion of the regulatory framework, the lack of specificity and certainty of sources of law that contain industrial safety requirements create difficulties in interpreting the legal norms by the executors of law when defining the offense provided for in Article 9.1 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation. These factors contain the risk of incorrect application of norms by the officials, specialists and experts in the field of industrial safety, and, as a result, jeopardize achievement of safety of hazardous production facilities. The result of the study is the conclusion about the need to improve the conceptual basis of the legislation and additional regulation of the application of mandatory requirements of Technical regulations and other technical standards in the course of conducting industrial safety expertise.
