Who needs a building license in Ukraine?

The building license is the decision made by the licensing body that the concrete subject of economic relations has the right to carrying out building activity.

It is important to know that only the construction of a certain range of objects can be a subject to licensing, which is divided into categories depending on the classes of consequences:

  • medium impact facilities (class CC2)
  • significant impact sites (class CC3).

There is also class CC1 - objects with insignificant consequences, but for construction of such objects the license is not necessary.

The first thing to do before preparing the license documents is to decide which class your construction project will belong to. We will help you with that.

Building license issuance process

In order to properly prepare for obtaining a building license, You need to go through several stages of preparation:

  • Determine the class of consequences of a future construction project.
  • Select the types of construction work to be carried out during construction. There is a government document - the Codifier, which contains a list of possible works.
  • Prepare the necessary package of documents and submit it to the licensing authority.

What problems may arise in the process of obtaining a building license?

The main problem in obtaining a construction license is the lack of a regulatory act that would clearly regulate the requirements for each individual type of work under the Codifier.

Why is this a bad thing?

The licensing authority uses only its internal vision of the issue of a license, which gives almost unlimited reasons for refusing to issue a license that cannot be argued with.

Other common problems in obtaining a license include:

  • the documents You submit must contain a lot of information. The slightest omission will result in a denial of Your license.;
  • drafting of the mentioned above information and other licensing documents requires qualified knowledge;
  • the process often requires an excessive waste of money and time.

Unfortunately, without proper experience in dealing with such issues and deep knowledge of Ukrainian legislation, as well as taking into account all these problems and the practice of delaying the licensing procedure - You risk applying more than once or not getting a license at all.

If You want to avoid extra time and money waste - contact our lawyers. We will get a license for You quickly and easily.
