At the meeting, the stakeholders, including the representatives of LEPL Partnership for Road Safety, JSC Greenway Georgia, LEPL Association of Vehicle Inspection Centers and GeoWel Research Ltd presented their views and opinions upon the questions raised by the Thematic Inquiry Group and proposed certain recommendations in view to better comply with the legislation prepared for the intermittent technical inspections and relevant regulations.
The meeting identified a number of shortcomings and challenges in the process of law enforcement that require joint work with the patrol police.
The rapporteurs also discussed the possibility of introducing additional mechanisms serving to eliminate the violations and noted that it is important to raise public awareness as well as to have a conscientious approach towards the inspection process for the implementation of modern standards of periodic technical inspections.
The guests brifed the members of the Thematic Inquiry Group on the directions of their organizations' activities and specifics and presented visions of overcoming the existing challenges.
The outcomes of the first verbal hearing of the Group were summarized by the Chair of the EU Integration Committee, Tamar Khulordava: “In addition to processing the presented information, we will also convene a similar meeting with the executive officials and hear relevant information from all state agencies involved in law enforcement. Upon clarification of existing needs, we'll have an extra meeting with you, possibly together with the executive. Our goal is to hear all sides and then make the conclusion based on the opinions of all individuals.”
