12:31 - 29.03.2023

March 29, Fineko/ Azerbaijan is likely to ban to connect facilities built without permission to water supply and sewerage networks.

ABC.AZ reports that in this regard, it is proposed to amend the Law on Water Supply & Water Disposal.

The draft amendments were developed in order to establish the legal grounds for prohibiting the connection to gas supply, water supply, sanitation, electricity or heat supply systems of objects built or under construction without complying with the requirements of urban planning and construction legislation.

According to the proposed amendment to the Criminal Code, officials of natural gas, water, sewerage, electricity or heat supply enterprises are also liable for violation of these requirements.
