Gazprom and Rosstandart committed to improve quality of Russian-made products
Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Management Committee of Gazprom, and Alexey Abramov, Head of the Federal Agency for Technical Regulation and Metrology (Rosstandart), signed today at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum 2017 an Agreement of Cooperation in the field of standardization and conformity assessment.
The document contains the rationale for deeper cooperation between Gazprom and Rosstandart, on the one hand, and the professional community, on the other hand, in the field of standardization, taking into account the modern and promising technological trends in the oil and gas industry.
The parties will strive, inter alia, to pursue a coherent policy in interacting with international organizations and foreign authorities for standardization in the oil and gas industry. Gazprom and Rosstandart are committed to support efforts aimed at introducing Russian import-substituting products to international markets.
The Agreement will also help create synergy between the INTERGAZCERT voluntary certification system developed by Gazprom and the State System of Standardization designed by Rosstandart.
Special attention will be given to the efforts intended to improve the quality of products of Russian manufacturers, including small and medium-sized businesses.
