The proposals of the Association of European Business were taken into account when drafting the Resolution of the Ministry of Antimonopoly Regulation and Trade of the Republic of Belarus "On the classification of trade objects by types and kinds".
So, in the current version of the project:
- the area of the form of the "supermarket" shopping facility is indicated from 600 to 4000 sq. m .;
- the method of selling goods for the form "discounter" - self-service has been determined;
- included the concept of the form of a shopping facility "mini-store (mini-market)" with an area of up to 100 sq. m.;
- in the concept of the form "autoshop" added the ability to organize trade not only with the use of vehicles, but also on the basis of trailers, semitrailers and a number of others.
Please note that Ministry amended the title of the act by excluding the term "retail" in relation to trade facilities (the name of the current edition of the Resolution: “On approval of the Instruction on the procedure for classifying retail trade facilities by type and kinds".).
