Psychological, medical and educational committees (PMECs) represent a unique type of work carried out by their interdisciplinary teams of specialists and aimed at children and adolescents. Being a part of the educational system, PMECs also belong to the system of prevention of crime among minors. However, existing legislation needs serious reconsideration within the context of activity arrangement of the committees, as well as harmonization of the problem domain thesaurus. The article analyzes controversial issues in legislative regulation of PMEC’s activities in the context of defining specific educational conditions when referring minors to the system of specialized open and closed teaching and educational facilities. We proposed and substantiated the list of documents required for a child being referred to the examination by a PMEC. On the basis of the analysis we justify the recommendations for closing the legislative gaps in regulation of PMECs, which are relevant both to the educational system and to the system of prevention of lawbreaking among minors – all with the inter-agency cooperation in mind.

Keywords: minors, a psychological, medical and educational committee, PMEC, comprehensive examination, legal regulation.
