Some issues regarding the application of the special permissions on using the bowels of the earth (legal aspect)

During the recent years the attention has substantially increased to the legislation which regulates the relations which concern the grant of the bowels of the earth for the use. Above all things, the question is about those aspects of the legislative regulation which are connected with the determination of order and terms of grant of the special permissions on using the bowels of the earth with the purpose of geological study, development of mineral deposits, etc. As an example we can take article 16 of the Code of Ukraine On the Bowels of the Earth dated July, 27, 1994 [1]. This article has been significantly amended - eleven amendments were made in the beginning of 2010, in particular. However, regular appearance of the draft bills which offer to specify these or those scripts of this article testifies that the issue of subsequent improvement of the legislation in relation to the application of the special permissions remains of current importance.
