Sheifer considering the Institute of investigating actions in a narrow sense, as a kind of procedural actions of informative character, the purpose of production of which is the establishment of factual circumstances of importance for the criminal case is shared. It is proved that procedural detention does not have cognitive properties, and forensics holds a special place in the system of investigating actions. It is suggested to use the polygraph, not only in forensic psychophysiological examination, but also in the production of a new investigating action - check of the readings on the polygraph.
