Organization Rules Revised

President Vladimir Putin has removed the term limit for heads of national associations of self-regulatory organizations in the field of geotechnical investigations, structural engineering and construction, Vedomosti reported Saturday, citing the Kremlin's press office.

Under amendments to the Urban Planning Code signed by Putin, the ban on their re-election for a second term was eliminated. However, heads of those associations will not be able to run for more than two consecutive two-year terms.

The amendments also require national associations of self-regulatory organizations to bring their charters in line with the Urban Planning Code.
