This innovative system, available on the unified platform for subsoil users, “Minerals.gov.kz,” aims to streamline and enhance the efficiency of the application process. The ministry’s press service, as reported by inbusiness.kz, has confirmed this development.
Through Ministerial Order No. 517, issued on July 14, 2023, significant amendments have been introduced to the Rules for the Submission and Review of Applications for the issuance of licenses for the extraction of solid minerals. The effective date for the implementation of these amendments is September 20, 2023.
Consequently, commencing from August 20, 2023, the acceptance of documents for acquiring licenses related to the extraction of solid minerals will be exclusively conducted in electronic format. This transition to electronic submission is expected to enhance the convenience, speed, and effectiveness of the licensing process.
