MOSCOW, February 10, 2020 – Rosstandart and the Association of distributors
and manufacturers of electrical equipment "Honest position" signed an Agreement
on cooperation in the field of quality control and compliance with mandatory requirements of electrical products. The document was signed by Deputy Head
of the Federal Agency on Technical Regulating and Metrology Alexey Kuleshov and General Director of the Association Vladimir Kashkin.

The parties agreed to exchange information. The document also provides for joint activity on quality control and compliance with the mandatory requirements
of manufactured and circulating electrical products, which is subject to the action
of the technical regulations. This is necessary to coordinate efforts and create conditions for the prevention and suppression of violations in the field of quality
and compliance with established standards of electrical products.

It is noted that such interaction will help to increase the effectiveness of the control system and counteract unfair competition, as well as the fight against counterfeit
and falsified electrical products. This, in turn, will increase the interest
of manufacturers and distributors in doing business in good faith. Cooperation will also be useful for forming an agreed position when discussing normative legal acts
and documents on standardization in the field of technical regulation of these products.

On January 22, 2020, a decree of the Government of the Russian Federation assigned Rosstandart the authority to monitor compliance with the EAEU technical regulation "About limiting the use of hazardous substances in electrical and radioelectronic products" (EAEU TR 037/2016) in terms of electrical and radioelectronic products sold not for the needs of consumers.

Rosstandart has previously supervised compliance with the requirements for these products in accordance with paragraph 6 of the agency regulations.
An act of the Russian Government that establishes the authority to supervise electrical products will make it possible to plan supervisory activities more effectively.
At the same time, the effectiveness of the fight against counterfeiting directly depends on the participation of representatives of business and public organizations. Without their participation, it is impossible to develop a system of voluntary certification
of cable products, which can significantly reduce the amount of falsification
on the market.
