It has become easier to dispose of uterine capital
From January 1, the Pension Fund will make a decision on applications for the disposal of the certificate for maternity capital within ten days, and not a whole month. In some cases, the deadlines can be extended up to fifteen and twenty days if it becomes necessary to request information from other departments. If the Pension Fund makes a positive decision, it will transfer the money within three working days.
It now takes five days to issue a certificate. However, the period can be extended to 15 days if the Pension Fund needs more information.
The Pension Fund itself notes that most of the territorial offices are already providing public services in an accelerated mode. The department also recalled that from April 15, 2020, the capital is issued without an application, but on the basis of information about the birth of children provided by the registry office. It is planned that in 2021 more than a million Russian families will receive the certificate. Its size will be 483,882 rubles for the first child and 639,432 rubles for the second.
Children will be accommodated in hotels only with written consent
When minor children traveling without parents check into the hotel, hoteliers will have to require notarized consent of legal representatives, that is, parents. Such a document must be submitted both by those accompanying the children's groups and by the child's relatives, for example, an aunt or grandmother. The new rules for the provision of hotel services will take effect from January 1.
The medical certificate will become electronic
At the request of the patient, he will be given an electronic medical certificate. You can request it in your personal account on the State Services portal using the "My Health" super service. According to the order of the Ministry of Health, in addition to paper certificates and medical reports, from January 1, their electronic counterparts, signed with a strengthened digital signature of a doctor, become valid. An electronic certificate can confirm the presence or absence of diseases, contacts with infectious patients, exemption from school or, for example, the fact of seeking medical help or undergoing medical examination.
Labeling of clothing becomes mandatory

From January 1, labeling of light industry goods becomes mandatory - men's, women's, children's outerwear and sportswear, as well as all types of home textiles. The labeling of fur products began in 2016, after which the turnover increased 10 times.
A repeated marriage certificate will be issued at any registry office
You can get a second certificate of marriage or the birth of a child from January 1 at any registry office, and not only in the one where the first copy of the document is stored. Thus, it has become easier to recover lost or damaged documents. Moreover, it is now possible to order a new copy of any of them, if it is stored in the registry office, through the State Services portal, paying the duty there at a discount (245 rubles instead of 350). This became possible thanks to the creation of the Unified State Register of Civil Status Acts, the Federal Tax Service told RG. The department also recalled that relatives who need to confirm their relationship can also receive a duplicate document. For example, in order to obtain a parent's birth certificate, you must present your own birth certificate.
Garbage rules change
From January 1, another part of the list of waste comes into force, which must not be disposed of without recycling. The document was adopted by the government back in 2017. The list itself consists of three parts: first, the requirements regarding scrap metal came into force, then - waste paper and plastic, now the time has come for equipment and batteries.
The participants of the garbage industry themselves warn that not all types of products that have ended up in waste are ready to efficiently recycle. For example, the disposal of a smartphone is economically unjustified, but used batteries are quite. In the PPK "Russian Ecological Operator" they said that the capacities of the open factories for the disposal of batteries are only partially loaded. And so far, the main problem is not in the recycling itself, but in the logistics: the recycled batteries must be somehow collected and brought to a specialized enterprise.
Also, from January 1, the government-approved rules for the creation and modernization of processing facilities, utilization, disinfection and disposal of solid municipal waste come into force. The unified requirements state that when placing facilities for handling solid municipal waste, it is necessary to take into account their impact on the environment, the location of places where waste is generated and accumulated, and traffic flow patterns. The waste processing itself should be predominantly automatic, and the technology itself is designed so as to extract the maximum amount of useful components. The procedures for the decommissioning of such facilities with the obligatory elimination of the accumulated environmental damage are also prescribed. The existing waste management facilities must undergo modernization by 2026.
