Project Description
This project will introduce new criteria for assigning businesses inspections through the creation of a new risk matrix for disaster management. This matrix will allow a new classification of inspections, so that more human and financial capacities are intended to high and medium risk businesses. The reform will also assess the convenience of outsourcing the inspections system to the private sector, based on institutional and financial feasibility studies. After the optimal inspection model is agreed, the following reform components will be implemented: i) an adjustment of the regulatory framework, ii) Implement of IT tools, iii) Design of a training program for different actors, including servants and officials involved in the inspections system, helping them to fulfill their new roles, iv) Create operation manuals and new forms containing new procedures to reduce discretion between inspectors. The reform will also include the development of a pilot study that will assess the possibility of measuring the impact of the reform beyond the reduction of days and costs of inspections (i.e. by evaluating the effective reduction of security accidents after the reform was implemented). The stated goals are to improve Technical Security inspections, increase compliance, promote formality in existing business and to facilitate operation of new business, and reduce safety accidents. By introducing regulatory amendments to the current inspection procedure, it is expected to achieve cost savings for the private sector. This project will support 3 pilot municipalities in the implementation of the reform.
