Законопроект об ужесточении ответственности за реализацию некачественного топлива

Last week, the State Duma adopted in the first reading a bill toughening responsibility for the implementation of low-quality fuel in the Russian Federation. Federal Law No. 206545-7 establishes “negotiable fines” for the sale of low-quality fuel (the project was developed by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation at the initiative of Rosstandart).
A new type of administrative penalty is envisaged – a fine in the form of 1% of the revenue received from the sale of motor fuel for the year preceding the year of the violation (“turnaround”). For a repeated violation when selling poor-quality motor fuel, a fine of 2 million rubles may be imposed. or in the form of suspension of the enterprise for up to 90 days with confiscation of the offense.
Separately, the draft law specifies liability for violations that are related to the sale of fuels with physical and chemical properties that do not meet the established requirements. Penalty for violating the rules of marking or informing consumers about the characteristics of fuel will range from 100 to 300 thousand rubles.
