ABSTRACT

This article describes the reforms that currently occur to improve the legal support for the public (state) administration of marine environment protection in Ukraine in the direction of control and supervision activities in the marine environment of Ukraine. In particular, the author analyzes the latest changes in the institutional support of control and supervisory functions in the field of marine environment protection. In the article it is considered the compelled move of the Government of Ukraine to eliminate two marine environmental inspectorates, which has become the next stage in the reform of the state administration in the state’s environmental sector. This step is a temporary redistribution of the functions of territorial bodies of the State Environmental Inspectorate of Ukraine on the way of building an updated system of efficient public administration, ensuring the reliable fulfillment of the ecological function of the modern Ukrainian state through the implementation of control and supervision procedures in the seaports. It is noted that this will facilitate the gradual formation, in accordance with the Concept of reforming the system of state supervision (control) in the field of environmental protection 2017 of an integrated system of public (state) administration, which could ensure the implementation of reforms in the field of environmental activities, in particular with regard to improving the control and supervision procedures. Initiatives to adopt a special Law of Ukraine “On State Environmental Control” were also supported.

The key words: control, supervision, environmental protection, marine environmental inspectorates, reform.
