Temporary registration of the agricultural machinery during the martial law

The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine (the “CMU”) has introduced new measures to ensure food security during the martial law. In particular, the CMU adopted the Resolution No. 434 of 12 April 2022 (the “Resolution No. 434”), amending the Procedure for departmental registration and deregistration of tractors, self-propelled chassis, self-propelled agricultural, road construction and reclamation machines, agricultural machinery, other mechanisms (the “Procedure”).

According to the introduced amendments, the Procedure now allows temporary registration of tractors, self-propelled chassis, self-propelled agricultural, road construction and reclamation machines, agricultural machinery, and other mechanisms (“machines”) during the martial law or state of emergency.

Such temporary registration during the martial law or state of emergency requires fewer documents than the regular one. Accordingly, the application must be accompanied only by the following documents:

  • a copy of the document confirming the ownership right;
  • a document certifying the identity of the machine owner’s representative and his powers (if necessary);
  • a copy of the document certifying the identity of the machine’s owner.

State inspectors carry out temporary registration at the place of application within three working days. At the same time, the inspection of machines is carried out only if possible.

Proper temporary registration is valid during the martial law or state of emergency and for six months after its suspension or abolition. During this six-month period, persons operating the machines are obliged to register the machines according to the regular procedure.

A machine is considered unregistered in case of failure to properly register within six months after the suspension or abolition of martial law or state of emergency, establishing the fact of the encumbrance of the machine and/or submission of documents that do not correspond to the relevant state registers.
