Coronavirus want to recognize force majeure in public procurement
The Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Russia, when performing public procurement, began to issue conclusions about force majeure due to coronavirus. It is planned that this practice will continue to spread.
According to "Kommersant", on behalf of the headquarters for the prevention of the importation of a new coronavirus infection into the territory of Russia, the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of Finance are working on the issue of issuing an appropriate regulatory act. The virus has seriously affected international trade, and due to the epidemic, the deadlines for the execution of several government contracts have already been violated. For example, Rostelecom was unable to supply tablets for the population census due to delays in the supply of components from China.
If the government recognizes coronavirus as force majeure in the execution of FZ-44, then business contractors will be able to avoid large fines for late execution of the contract.
