The government is going to tighten liability for refilling gas stations: it will be punished almost as strictly as selling low-quality gasoline – a fine of 1% of the refueling owner’s proceeds from the sale of fuel for the previous year
Such an innovation is spelled out in the draft new Code of Administrative Offenses (CAO) of Russia. The document was prepared by the Ministry of Justice and posted on the federal portal of draft regulatory legal acts. Earlier, a similar bill introducing negotiable fines for underfilling was already submitted to the government, but then it was decided that this norm would be immediately integrated into the updated Code of Administrative Offenses.
The minimum fine, regardless of the turnover of the gas station, will be 50 thousand rubles. It is also proposed to introduce a fine for the use of measuring instruments of an unapproved type or not verified, non-compliance with mandatory requirements for measuring instruments and the conditions for their use, as well as for the use of units not approved for use in Russia. It is curious that in November 2019 the Ministry of Industry and Trade announced that the actual underfilling of fuel at Russian gas stations exceeds the norm by two to three times.
