EAEU approved mechanisms for coordinating standardization activities on technical regulation

At the August 23 meeting, the Board of the Eurasian Economic Commission adopted a recommendation for the coordination of activities in the field of standardization in the Eurasian Economic Union.

The recommendations include guidelines on the coordination of activities in the field of standardization in the EAEU, which contain a number of procedures previously not regulated in the Union, particularly the preparation and approval of programs on developing interstate standards for the EAEU technical regulations, as well as interaction between national standardization authorities in the planning and development (amendment, revision) of interstate standards.

The agreed actions for developing standardization in the EAEU and the manufacture of innovative and high-tech products in the Member States call for interaction between standardization authorities in determining development directions and prospects for this sphere in the EAEU, forming efficient mechanisms for the implementation of the Union countries' agreed actions in the field of advanced standardization, improving and harmonizing the EAEU countries' national legislation, as well as in conducting other information exchange.

"Applying the recommendation provisions will contribute to the development of the standardization sphere in the EAEU and the systematic planning of activities to ensure the application of the Union technical regulations, as well as advanced international and regional standards," Viktor Nazarenko, EEC Minister in charge of Technical Regulation, noted.

For reference

The recommendation will ensure testing the mechanisms for the coordination of standardization activities that will become the first step towards the approval by the Commission of the Procedure for Coordination of Standardization Activities within the Union. The elaboration of this procedure is envisaged by the Strategic Directions for Developing the Eurasian Economic Integration until 2025 approved by Decision No. 12 of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council dated December 11, 2020.
