The Ministry of Justice proposes to amend the Code of Violations, the Law "On Licensing and Permitting System in the Kyrgyz Republic" and the Law "On Notaries".

The bill introduces a norm on the professional ethics of notaries and responsibility for violation of its norms. It is envisaged to establish an age limit for persons wishing to engage in this activity, from 25 to 70 years.
The proposed bill also expands the range of restrictions for engaging in notarial activities.
With the adoption of the law, it will also be necessary to develop a number of normative legal acts to streamline notarial activities.
