They can take into account both absolute and relative performance indicators of the work of domestic sites. The monitoring of the «sandboxes» will be engaged in a specially created coordinating structure, the regulatory authority will be fixed in addition to them.
As part of special legal sites, legal entities, IP, executive authorities and local administrations will be able to work. Those who wish will have the opportunity not only to join the existing «sandbox», but also to organize a new one. A number of legal conditions are provided for participation, and the existing participants will be able to disqualify for non-performance of the program, due to the insolvency or inefficiency of the product, violation of the legislation.
However, the exclusive legal conditions of the participants will not affect their taxation. All existing requirements will be distributed unchanged.
Special legal regime will be valid for a limited period of time, and in case of success of the project, a change in legislation may be initiated for the conclusion of the product to the market. Representatives of the Skolkovo Foundation and the Center for Strategic Developments took part in the formation of the proposal.
