Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation Mikhail Mishustin approved the mechanism of long-term tariff regulation. This is stated in the message of the FAS, which is the developer of the resolution.

According to the document, the regions, after coordination with the antimonopoly service, have the opportunity to determine the limit indices for several years ahead, instead of setting them for each following year.

The use of such a mechanism together with a set of measures within the framework of the Concept of long-term tariff regulation will make it possible to increase investments in housing and communal services up to 1 trillion rubles in the future until 2030, the FAS believes.

The heads of the regions, in accordance with the resolution, can already launch the work of such a mechanism for attracting investments this year. To do this, they need to send a list of documents to the FAS by November 10, 2021.

The determination of the values of the limit indices for several years ahead is allowed only if there is a clear justification for the need to implement investment measures in accordance with the approved schemes of heat, water supply, sanitation, treatment of MSW, which are placed in the public domain. At the same time, the region's obligation to regularly provide a report on the implementation of investment measures is fixed, and in case of non-fulfillment, long-term indices are subject to cancellation.
