Tashkent held a press conference following the launch of ‘Licence’, an interactive licencing tool, developed as part of the five-area Action Strategy 2017-2021.

Licence is an information system helping state bodies grant licences to businesses. It will ensure transparency of licencing activities and open access to licence rosters.

The Licence system will give citizens general information about licencing.

The system will allow businesses to send an online application and get e-licences from 1 January 2018.

Launched in December 2016, the electronic licencing portal is now in beta. Public officials have already filed around 600 licence applications.

Half of them have already been reviewed and put on the roster, containing over 41,000 licences.

The portal offers a guide on how licence applications in over 40 areas are to be submitted.

The areas include transport, customs, banking, architecture, construction, culture, publication, advertisement, trade, medicine, and others.
