In the future, subscription service for electric vehicle batteries is possible, which is expected to dramatically lower the initial purchase cost of electric vehicles.
In addition, taxis are allowed to attach a stop sign for passengers to prevent accidents, and the height standard applied to three-story buildings will be raised from 9m to 10m.
The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport announced on the 1st that it held the second meeting of the ‘Land Transport Regulatory Reform Committee’ on the 28th of last month and deliberated and decided on 10 regulations for improving regulations in the land transport sector, including this content.
On the 6th of last month, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport established the Land Transport Regulatory Reform Committee, announcing its will to transfer the initiative in regulatory reform to the private sector. At this meeting, for the first time since the inauguration of the Regulatory Reform Committee, an improvement plan was deliberated and resolved.
At the meeting, the agenda to improve the vehicle registration register was decided to enable the electric vehicle battery subscription service to enter the market.
With the recent spread of electric vehicles, the credit finance industry is planning to launch a battery subscription service, which is the most expensive and core electric vehicle device.
However, the current vehicle registration ordinance does not allow separate registration of ownership of batteries other than automobiles in the vehicle registration register, which limits product launch.
Accordingly, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport plans to amend the vehicle registration ordinance this year so that if the battery owner is different from the car owner, the fact can be recorded in the registration register.
When the battery subscription service is launched, the initial purchase cost to be borne by electric vehicle buyers will be dramatically reduced.
For example, in the case of the Niro EV (45.3 million won) currently sold by Hyundai Motor Company, it can be purchased at 35.3 million won with an average of 10 million won from the government and local government subsidies. .
In addition, the Enforcement Decree of the Building Act will be amended to raise the height limit of buildings applied to three-story buildings from 9m to 10m.
If the height regulation is relaxed, problems such as the use of defective insulation materials while forcibly meeting the 9m standard in the field are expected to be improved.
Inconveniences experienced in the construction business registration and ordering process will also be improved.
Specifically, the detailed standards for ordering construction work will also be revised so that when general contractors and professional builders bid in a mutually permitted market, the performance can be checked and automatically evaluated through the electronic procurement system.
In addition, 10 inspection items for offices applied when a general construction business operator receives a contract for specialized construction or when a specialized construction business entity checks whether the registration standards of the other business are met to receive a general construction contract have been deleted and the number of orders for construction by a specialized construction business entity is restricted. It was also decided to revise the Enforcement Decree of the Building Act so that problems do not arise.
The enforcement regulations of the related laws will be amended to entrust the ordinance so that the scope of liberal arts facilities that can be installed in city parks can be set within a range similar to the already prescribed liberal arts facilities according to the circumstances of the local government.
The car tuning task manual is also revised so that a stop sign can be attached to the outside of the taxi car so that the rear can recognize it when getting off the taxi.
In addition, in relation to the non-priority subscription for housing, it was decided to come up with a reasonable improvement plan in consideration of the committee’s opinion that the cost and time required for a project entity to openly recruit through the subscription home repeatedly for the remaining quantity is excessive.
The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport plans to promote the revision of related laws within this year for the tasks decided by the Regulatory Reform Committee, and continue to discover and improve regulatory improvement tasks through the Regulatory Reform Committee.
Minister of Land, Infrastructure and Transport Won Hee-ryong said, “Even if it is a small suggestion, if many tasks are continuously improved, the effect felt by companies and the public will be significant.”
