This article considers some transformations of the legal regulation of labor protection in the Kyrgyz Republic (or simply Kyrgyzstan) and the Russian Federation (Russia) in the comparative aspect. The example of Kyrgyzstan uncovers the consequences of the cancellation of the former USSR laws on the territory of the Kyrgyz Republic and the problems this abolition has caused in the law enforcement practice of Kyrgyzstan. The author notes the desire of the state labor inspectorate in Kyrgyzstan to justify the possibility of applying soviet or Russian technical regulations as applied to occupational safety standards. The article shows the vulnerability of this position from the legal point of view, which causes practical difficulties in the implementation of inspections by the state labor inspectorate, as well as in the conduct of public control over labor protection by trade unions in Kyrgyzstan. The paper studies the issues of legal support for the system of special assessment of working conditions in Russia and justifies the need to create an effective mechanism for assessing working conditions in Kyrgyzstan in accordance with international labor standards.
