Preventive measures for business entities will be carried out on the basis of plans-graphs agreed with the representative for the protection of the rights of entrepreneurs, without interfering in the financial and economic activities of business entities;

b) business entities have the right not to allow officials of supervisory bodies to enter their territory for inspection in the following cases:
