LAW OF THE REPUBLIC OF UZBEKISTAN

of August 20, 1999 No. 826-I

About safety of hydraulic engineering constructions

(as amended on 10-10-2006)
Article 1. Purpose of this Law

The purpose of this Law is regulation of the relations arising when implementing activities for safety during the designing, construction, commissioning, operation, reconstruction, recovery, preservation and liquidation of hydraulic engineering constructions.

Article 2. Legislation on safety of hydraulic engineering constructions

The legislation on safety of hydraulic engineering constructions consists of this Law and other acts of the legislation.

Legal regulation of the relations in the field of safety of hydraulic engineering constructions in the Republic of Karakalpakstan is performed as well by the legislation of the Republic of Karakalpakstan.

If the international treaty of the Republic of Uzbekistan establishes other rules, than those which are provided in the legislation of the Republic of Uzbekistan on safety of hydraulic engineering constructions then are applied rules of the international treaty.

Article 3. Basic concepts

In this Law the following basic concepts are applied:

hydraulic engineering constructions - dikes, hydroelectric power station buildings, water waste, floodgate, water throughput and water final constructions, tunnels, channels, pumping points, constructions intended for protection against flood and destructions of coast of water storage basins, coast and bottom of beds of the rivers and channels, construction (dam) protecting storages of liquid waste of industrial and agricultural organizations;

the operating organization - the company, organization and the organization on which balance there is hydraulic engineering construction;

emergency situation - the situation in certain territory able to lead to accident, and also developed as a result of accident of the hydraulic engineering construction which can entail or entailed the human victims, damage to health of people or the surrounding environment, considerable material losses and violation of conditions of life activity of people;

safety of hydraulic engineering constructions - the condition of hydraulic engineering constructions allowing to provide protection of life, health and legitimate interests of people, the surrounding environment and economic objects;

the declaration of safety of the hydraulic engineering construction - the document in which safety of the hydraulic engineering construction is proved;

criteria of safety of the hydraulic engineering construction - the maximum values of quantitative and qualitative indexes of condition of the hydraulic engineering construction and conditions of its operation corresponding to tolerance level of risk of accident of the hydraulic engineering construction;

tolerance level of risk of accident hydrotechnical the sooruzheniyaznacheniye of risk of accident of the hydraulic engineering construction established by regulating documents.

Article 4. Powers of the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Uzbekistan in the field of safety of hydraulic engineering constructions

Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Uzbekistan:

ensures safety of the hydraulic engineering constructions which are in state-owned property and also safety of hydraulic engineering constructions of the companies entering republican and regional power system;

develops and realizes state programs of safety of hydraulic engineering constructions;

will organize the state supervision of safety of hydraulic engineering constructions;

will organize international cooperation on safety of hydraulic engineering constructions;

performs other powers according to the legislation.

Article 5. Powers of public authorities on places in the field of safety of hydraulic engineering constructions

Public authorities on places:

participate in implementation of state programs in the field of safety of hydraulic engineering constructions;

ensure safety of hydraulic engineering constructions when using water resources and implementing nature protection actions;

make decisions in the procedure established by the legislation on placement of hydraulic engineering constructions, and also on restriction of their operation in cases of violations of the law about safety of hydraulic engineering constructions;

participate in mitigation of consequences of accidents of hydraulic engineering constructions;

inform the population on threat of accidents hydrotechnical construction which can lead to emergence of emergency situations;

perform other powers according to the legislation.

Article 6. State supervision of safety of hydraulic engineering constructions

Specially authorized body exercising the state supervision of safety hydrotechnical construction is the State inspectorate for control and supervision of technical condition and safety of work of large and especially important water management objects under the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Uzbekistan which:

develops rules and criteria of safety of hydraulic engineering constructions;

carries out examination of reliability of technical condition and safety of operation of hydraulic engineering constructions together with the interested ministries and departments;

participates in placement of hydraulic engineering constructions, approval of design assignments of hydraulic engineering constructions, projects of their construction and reconstruction, control of quality of construction of hydraulic engineering constructions, their acceptance in operation, and also in approval of service regulations of hydraulic engineering constructions;

will organize check of condition of hydraulic engineering constructions and compliance of their condition to declarations of safety of hydraulic engineering constructions;

issues instructions about safety of hydraulic engineering constructions, and also makes offers on suspension and cancellation of licenses for activities on designing, construction and operation of the hydraulic engineering constructions relating to objects of the increased risk in cases of gross violation of regulations and safety rules of hydraulic engineering constructions;

agrees to use of the territories of hydraulic engineering constructions, beds of the rivers and the territories adjoining to them dikes (except for are lower and higher than provision of the parcels of land in the water protection zones) for implementation of economic or other activity;

prohibits or limits organization activity, the water management objects performing operation or conducting economic or other activity in beds of the rivers and in the territories adjoining to them below and above dike if such activities can make adverse effect on safety hydrotechnical construction. Prohibition and restriction of activities of subjects of entrepreneurship is performed judicially, except as specified restrictions of activities for the term of no more than ten working days in connection with prevention of emergence of emergency situations, epidemics and other real threat of life and to health of the population;

exercises control of the organization of protection of hydraulic engineering constructions;

performs other powers according to the legislation.
