The article provides the findings of the representative sociological survey of businesses regarding the assessment of performance and efficiency of monitoring and supervision activity conducted in 2016 at the onset of the state supervision reform. The authors indicate that in the majority of cases the activity of regulatory bodies does not result in the safety and quality increase of products, safety of production; at the same time, regulatory activity is associated with significant costs for both economic entities and the state.

Research findings confirm the need for a serious reform of regulatory activity with the aim of focusing the regulatory activity on risks prevention, minimizing consequences in case when the damage was done and on securing compensation for the damage done.

Key words: state regulation, regulatory activity, economic entities, sociological survey
