Lists of Standards to Technical Regulation "On Safety of Equipment for Operation in Explosive Atmospheres" updated

The Board of the Eurasian Economic Commission made amendments to the Lists of Standards to the Technical Regulation "On Safety of Equipment for Operation in Explosive Atmospheres". The document is supplemented by four current interstate standards (GOST) developed in accordance with the program for the development of interstate standards that was approved in order to implement the Technical Regulation.

The standards included in the Lists are developed on the basis of international IEC standards, which leads to harmonization with international standards and the establishment of common approaches to the assessment of equipment for operation in explosive atmospheres. 

In order to adapt the industry to the new GOSTs, transitional periods for their application as well as use of standards in exchange for which they are included have been established.

For reference

The Lists of Standards were supplemented by four relevant interstate standards:

GOST 31610.46-2020 (IEC TS 60079-46:2017) "Explosive atmospheres. Part 46. Equipment assemblies";

GOST 31610.15-2020 (IEC 60079-15:2017) "Explosive atmospheres. Part 15. Electrical equipment with type of protection "n";

GOST 31610.20-1-2020 (ISO/IEC 80079-20-1:2017) "Explosive atmospheres. Part 20-1. Material characteristics for gas and vapor classification. Test methods and data";
