The Federal Service for Supervision of Natural Resources (Rosprirodnadzor; Russian: Федеральная служба по надзору в сфере природопользования (Росприроднадзор), tr. Federal'naya sluzhba po nadzoru v sfere prirodopolzovaniya) is the Federal Environmental, Industrial and Nuclear Supervision Service of Russia.[2] This regulator is part of the Ministry of Natural Resources of the Russian Federation.[3][4]

History[edit]

In August 2019, the Minister of Natural Resources of the Russian Federation decreed that Rosprirodnadzor would be shrunk from 89 regional entities into 32 super-regional entities.[5]

In September 2019, Rosprirodnadzor and Norilsk Nickel signed an agreement whereby the latter would "automatically meter and monitor pollutant emissions" from "its mining facilities".[6]

On 4 June 2020, Rosprirodnadzor declared a state of emergency when 20,000 tonnes of diesel oil had spilled since 29 May from a plant owned by power subsidiary NTEK of Norilsk Nickel. The Investigative Committee of Russia opened a criminal case "over the pollution and alleged negligence", and the plant supervisor was taken into custody.[2]

In July 2020, Rosprirodnadzor sought compensation of $2 billion for the diesel spill. Minister of Natural Resources Dmitry Kobylkin reminded everyone that the polluter-pay principle strengthens his jurisdiction.[3]
