The RSPP Committee has 15 years old!


On February 21, 2020, celebrations dedicated to the 15th anniversary of the RSPP Committee on technical regulation, standardization and conformity assessment were held at the state Academic Bolshoi theater. The "Beethoven hall " of the theater brought together leading experts of the Committee, heads of state Executive bodies, business associations, major companies in various industries, and foreign guests.

Opening  the meeting permanent Chairman of the Committee member of the Bureau of the RSPP Board D. A. Pumpyansky congratulated the audience with the significant date. He noted that the Committee has done a lot of work for 15 years. The fact that this work can be recognized as both effective and efficient is primarily due to the huge army of experts and industry representatives who have united around the Committee. It is the opinion of these people that today forms the position of the business community on technical regulation, standardization, and conformity assessment, which has allowed the Committee to become one of the most authoritative organizations in this field.

The Committee has been actively involved in the formation of the legal framework for technical regulation in the country almost since its creation. With the formation of the Customs Union, the EEU, its work has reached the interstate level.

Over the past years, close and constructive contacts have been established with many state authorities, ministries and departments, and the Eurasian economic Commission.

"We have a lot of friends, assistants, like-minded people at all levels, which allows us to solve the most difficult issues. All the problems that arise in the course of everyday work, we first analyze in the Committee, form the position of business, study international experience, and then contact the interested state authorities to develop a joint solution. We do not always come to a common decision immediately, but many years of experience in cooperation helps us to reach a consensus, which has a beneficial effect on the development of Russian industry," D. A. Pumpyansky said.

The Committee received a number of welcome messages from the heads of state authorities.

The welcome telegram from Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Yuri Borisov notes that  "the Committee has become a sought-after link between the business community and the Executive branch, ensuring effective public-private partnership in the field of technical policy, consolidating the efforts of Russian Industrialists and entrepreneurs in implementing plans for the socio-economic development of the Russian Federation, as well as improving the business environment.

The Committee takes an active part in the formation of national legislation and legal frameworks of the Eurasian economic Union that meet modern business needs, as well as in the creation of effective tools for standardization, establishing mandatory requirements for products and assessing their compliance, through which, among other things, national projects and national technical initiatives are implemented.

Over the years, the Committee has gained well-deserved authority and respect. It is not an isolated case when the Committee's principled position contributed to the adoption of important decisions by the state leadership aimed at improving the business climate in the Russian Federation and protecting the Russian market from counterfeit and falsified products."
