|Measure 1.3 Introducing and implementing the plea bargain for all regulations in 5 key inspections|
|The introduction of plea bargain reduces the pressure to courts, improves the effect of penalties and collection of fines, as well as the probability of penalties, while reducing administration performed by inspections and perpetrators.
It is also recommended that the inspections should initiate the signing of a plea bargain in cases where a misdemeanor proceeding has been initiated, if they are suitable for the plea bargain option, in line with the expert methodological explanations adopted by the Coordination Commission, by sending a proposal for a plea bargain to the defendant.
