Abstract

The main problems of appointing and conducting judicial engineering and

nvironmentalexaminationsinadministrative proceedings in the event of detection of violations in the extraction of minerals are considered.

The purpose of the study is to generalize the problems appointing and conducting judicial engineering and environmental examinations (studies) in response to an administrative violation when using subsoil and providing practical guidelines for their solution.

The subjects which can be participants of public-law disputes and initiators of engaging an expert in order to undertake investigations in administrative proceedings while considering environmental violations are determined. Subject and objectives of judicial engineering and environmental examinations and types of objects provided to forensic experts to perform these studies are defined.

Conditions for the qualitative conduct of engineering and environmental examinations and solution of the tasks assigned to the expert are revealed, which depends on the accurate formulation of questions to the expert and completeness of the provision of studied objects. An indicative list of questions that can be solved by forensic experts within the framework of these examinations is proposed.

The possibility and necessity of conducting a full-scale inspection of the scene by an expert are considered.

A review of the literature indicates an insufficient development of concepts of the subject and object of this type of examination.

Promising directions of improvement of theoretical knowledge and practical activity both forensic experts and subjects (bodies) considering this type of environmental violations are outlined
