Cancel of permits for seals and stamps manufacturing to trigger malfeasance

Kyiv. February 24, 2011

“Abolishment by the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine (MIA) of permits for seals and stamps manufacturing might lead to abuses as now the manufacturing process would not ensure the control over validity of data or information specified in a sample illustration of seal,” believes Associate with Volkov and Partners, Taras Rozputenko, commenting on the respective MIA’s Order No. 5 of January 11, 2011 “On Recognition of MIA’s Order No. 17 Dated January 11, 1999 Such as Ceased to Be Effective”, effective since February 21, 2011.
Specifically, this Order revoked the requirement to obtain permits for seals and stamps manufacturing.
“In other words, from now on any individual or legal entity may go to an appropriate enterprise manufacturing seals and order at own discretion a seal of either a different business entity, a government body, a local self-government body or a notary public, and so on indefinitely,” emphasized Mr. Rozputenko.
According to the Associate, the manufacturing enterprise will not be obliged to verify data or information set forth in the sample illustration of seal.
In addition, Mr. Rozputenko pointed out that the fact of order for a corporate seal by any person other than a company itself will not be now subject to a criminal liability. Instead, the subsequent use of such seal by the company will be qualified as a criminally punishable act.
“Simple abolishment of the requirement to obtain a special permit for seal manufacturing might result in unfair practices and, consequently, lead to disputes likely settled in a judicial proceeding with, thus, further burden laid on judicial authorities,” summed up Mr. Rozputenko.
