The provisions of the Code of Gas Distribution Systems contradict the provisions of the current Law No. 5722-д "On Amendments to the Law of Ukraine" On Provision of Commercial Gas Metering "regarding the procedure for the establishment of meters for natural gas consumers," - MP Valeriy Pysarenko said.
The Politician calls for the document to be brought in line with the requirements of the current legislation and for this purpose has already addressed the Head of the National Commission, which carries out state regulation in the fields of energy and utilities.
"The law provides that a general gas meter can be installed only with the consent of the co-owners of an apartment building. If such consent is not granted, the termination of the distribution of natural gas shall be prohibited for such consumers. However, according to the provisions of the Code of Gas Distribution Systems, consumers are not entitled to refuse to install a general gas meter. In the case of a refusal, the distribution of natural gas to such consumers will be stopped. ", - it is states in the Deputy request.
Thus, according to words of Valeriy Pysarenko, the provisions of the Code contradict the provisions of the Law, resulting in a collision, which may complicate the implementation of the rules of the current legislation
