Implementation of the GOST standard for the assessment of vehicle compliance in the EAEU

On March 12, 2021 in Vladivostok, a meeting of the working group for the preparation and implementation of the GOST 33670-2015 standard "Technical examination, testing and measurement methods applied to individual vehicles during conformity assessment" was held. This was reported on the official websites of the Federal Accreditation Service and the Federal Agency for Technical Regulation and Metrology.

Consultation of organizations dealing with automotive vehicle compliance

The meeting was attended by representatives of the Federal Accreditation Service, the Federal Agency for Technical Regulations and Metrology, the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Maritime Region, testing laboratories for vehicle conformity assessment, as well as other organizations interested in this subject.

During the meeting, the current stage of legislative and organizational preparations related to the entry into force of the GOST 33670-2015 standard was discussed, including tests and research methods necessary to implement the conformity assessment of individual motor vehicles.

No important changes for vehicle drivers

During the discussion, attention was paid to planning the legislation in such a way as to minimize the impact of the changes introduced by consumers at the stage of preparation for the application of the GOST standard. Therefore, it is planned that this solution will be implemented in digital form, and dedicated laboratories will provide comprehensive services - not only construction safety testing, but also technical inspection, as well as issuing electronic passports for vehicles.

The pilot project is already underway - electronic vehicle safety certificates

Research laboratories, through their representatives, called for more active involvement in the implementation of the pilot project of electronic issuing of the Vehicle Safety Certificate. The dissemination of this solution will significantly reduce the labor costs of test centers when registering electronic vehicle passports (EPTS) for cars, and will also improve the process of preparing the necessary documents. Thanks to this system, data from the Vehicle Safety Certificate (SBKTS) will be automatically transferred to the system containing Vehicle Cards.

The GOST 33670-2015 standard was to enter into force on July 1, 2020. This period has been postponed by one year by the decision of the EEU Management Board No. 79 of June 23, 2020 and, in accordance with the information currently published, it will enter into force on July 1, this year.
