The legislation also sets limits on state guarantees and resumes the development of the State Debt Management Strategy for 2024-2026, which the Finance Ministry must submit by Oct. 25, 2023.
The law was backed by the parliament on July 27 as part of the efforts to complete benchmarks set by the IMF's program for Ukraine.
In March, the IMF approved an agreement with Ukraine under the Extended Fund Facility (EFF) for four-year financing aid worth about $15.6 billion, part of an overall $115 billion package.
In a first review of the program in June, the IMF said that Ukraine had made strong progress towards its commitments despite Russian aggression.
According to the organization's statement, the country had met all quantitative performance criteria through end-April and structural benchmarks through end-June.
Under the program, Ukraine has already received around $3.6 billion disbursed by the IMF.
