PROJECT APPROVAL AND REGISTRATION IN BELARUS

NATIONAL PROCEDURES OF APPROVAL AND REGISTRATION OF THE PROJECTS

The Joint Technical Secretariat would like to remind Belarusian beneficiaries of the projects approved for Programme funding that in order to receive Programme funding and implement activities of the project the Belarusian beneficiaries have to pass the national procedure of approval and registration of international technical assistance (hereinafter – ITA) projects in Belarus. The implementation of ITA projects without their prior registration is prohibited.

In accordance with the Decision of the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Belarus dated 26.09.2019 No. 661 “On the implementation of the Decree of the President of the Republic of Belarus dated 09.08.2019 No. 304” the new procedure for registering cross-border cooperation projects is established.

As well as the procedure for issuing confirmations on the purpose of goods (works, services), funds provided for the implementation of CBC projects registered by the Ministry of Economy for part of co-financing is determined by this document.

We would like also to draw your special attention to the fact that the approval procedure can be initialized only after receiving a copy of the letter from the Joint Technical Secretariat / Managing authority approving the final version of the project description and the final project budget.
