Implementation of the standard for building mixes and building solutions has been postponed

The entry into force of the GOST 58763-2019 standard specifying the rules for declaring mixes and building solutions has been postponed. It will enter into force at a later date, i.e. from January 1, 2023.

Dates related to the implementation of the standard

GOST R 58763-2019 entitled "Conformity assessment. The rules for declaring the conformity of  mixes and building solutions” were adopted by the ministry at the end of 2019 and were originally to enter into force on January 1, 2021. However, for the second time, entry into force of the provisions has been postponed. The standard will apply from January 1, 2023.

Reasons for postponing the implementation

The deadline was postponed due to the need to implement new remarks initiated by the North-West Territorial Branch of the Russian Academy of Architecture and the Union of Concrete Producers. These are expert comments that require development and implementation to the provisions of the regulations. Because of that, the postponement of the implementation date of the standard was a necessary step.

Scope of the standard

The standard discussed in this article defines the procedure for carrying out work on the mandatory confirmation of the compliance of mixes and building solutions in the form of a declaration of compliance. It is intended for use by applicants, i.e. manufacturers or persons authorized by manufacturers, as well as by testing laboratories, certification bodies and other interested parties.

Provisions of the GOST standard

According to the approved version of the GOST standard, the obligatory declaration of the compliance of mixes and building solutions with the provisions of the technical regulations is carried out only on the basis of product test reports obtained from accredited testing laboratories. In addition, according to the provisions of GOST, the validity of the declaration of conformity for dry building mixtures may be no more than 3 years, and the validity of the declaration for all other products may not exceed 1 year.
