Belarusian business urged to be contribute more to standardization effort in EAEU

MINSK, 9 August (BelTA) - Belarusian business needs to pursue its interests more actively as the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) develops technical regulations, Charmian of the Belarusian State Committee for Standardization Viktor Nazarenko said during an online press-conference at BelTA’s website.

“Belarusian organizations, business community and other economic entities should participate more actively in the discussion of the projects, voice their opinions and suggestions. This would help avoid the emergence of unnecessary requirements and procedures, difficulties in their application. Thus we will also be able to realistically assess the degree of regulatory impact on business taking into account the interests of all stakeholders and advance the interests of the country in the Eurasian union,” Viktor Nazarenko said.

He noted that the EAEU legal framework has created the conditions for attracting all stakeholders in the process of developing technical regulations or amendments to them, both through direct participation as part of the working groups, and by submitting suggestions and comments for public discussions of draft documents.

However, the analysis of the feedback on draft technical regulations posted on the EEC website following public discussions shows that the Belarusian industrialists and business community are still quite passive and take a wait-and-see attitude as new technical regulations are developed,” Viktor Nazarenko said.

On the contrary, the organizations and the associations of industrialists of the Russian Federation take the full advantage of this opportunity and actively participate in this process and defend their positions, Viktor Nazarenko said. “There have been examples when even American and European business community and enterprises have sent suggestions and comments on draft documents,” Viktor Nazarenko added.

According to the State Committee for Standardization, Eurasian Economic Union (Customs Union) has adopted 44 technical regulations for different types of products, 35 of them already in force. Another regulation regarding fish and fish products safety will come into force on 1 September 2017. Currently, 14 new technical regulations are in the works.
