10 recommendations for better Construction Law
Employers consider the current failing system of spatial planning and
building permits to be one of the main obstacles to the development of
the business environment and raising the living standards of the
population in Slovakia.
They identified the length of proceedings, insufficient expertise and inconsistency in decision-making by many building authorities, duplication of proceedings and insufficient digitization as the biggest weaknesses they encounter in practice in the application of the current building legislation. This results in significant unpredictability and cumbersome construction procedures, which tend to be disproportionately long, do not reflect the needs of the market and do not meet the standards of developed countries. In order to improve this uncompetitive state, 12 employers' unions and associations prepared ten strategic recommendations for an accurate and effective building code (see appendix), which they presented today at a joint press conference in Bratislava.
