The Cabinet of Ministers adopted a resolution “On measures to regulate the licensing of refining activities”.
The document says that from March 15 refining activities will be carried out by legal entities on the basis of a license issued by the State Assay Office under the Ministry of Finance.
A license for the right to engage in refining activities will be issued only through public service centers (PSC) or the Integrated Portal of Interactive Public Services (IPIPS).
In addition, the resolution approved the regulation on the licensing of refining activities.
According to the regulation, a license for the right to engage in refining activities will be issued for a period of 10 years with subsequent extension. Refining activities include services for the processing and separation of precious metals, their return or non-return after the refining process.
The applicant personally appeals to the PSC or sends a standard application for a license through Integrated Portal of Interactive Public Services (IPIPS).
Regardless of the method of filing the application, the licensing authority decides whether to issue or refuse to issue a license within the following time limits, not exceeding the date of application acceptance:
to get a license - 5 business days;
to renew the license - 2 business days;
to terminate the activity on their own will - 8 working hours.
For the application to be considered, a fee of 5 times the amount of BCA (1,115,000 soums) and a state fee of the same amount will be charged.
