The open event will take place from 10:00 to 12:00 on February 5th, 2009 at the AEB Office in Moscow. The working language is Russian. English translation will be provided.

This meeting will provide you with an excellent opportunity to assess the challenges faced by European companies based in Russia, with regards to the implementation of new technical regulations.

In fact, the Federal Law 184-FZ of 2002 "On Technical Regulation" amended by Laws 45-FZ, 65-FZ, 309-FZ and 160-FZ changes radically the whole system of technical regulation in Russia. The most important changes introduced by this Law are:

  • Replacement of mandatory compliance with standards by mandatory compliance with technical regulations, meant to ensure protection of life and health of people, protection of property of individuals and legal entities, protection of environment and prevention of actions misleading consumers
  • Voluntary application of standards
  • Predominant use of mandatory declaration of conformity over mandatory certification
  • On-line registration
