At the beginning of this month, 56 national, interstate and international standards came into force. Among them are a series of documents on welding and related processes, standards on photogrammetry and Internet services on the railroad.
GOST R 58426-2020, Automobile roads of general use. Dеiсing materials. Methods of testing. Manufacturers of anti-icing materials test their products, thereby controlling their quality. Tests, according to the standard, must be conducted in special laboratories that meet the hygienic norms and accredited by the national accreditation system. The room of such laboratories must be equipped with the supply and exhaust ventilation. The air temperature during the tests should be 20 ℃, the atmospheric pressure - 84 kPa, and relative humidity - no more than 80%. The sample volume of solid anti-icing materials - not less than 0.2% of tare units from a batch of products weighing 100 kg or less; not less than 0.5% from a batch of 100 to 700 kg and not less than 1.0% from containers weighing more than 700 kg.
GOST R 59011-2020, Sport vehicles. Technical expertise, safety requirements and verification methods. In order to classify a particular vehicle to the sports segment, it is necessary to carry out its technical expertise (inspection). This document establishes the methodology of such an inspection. In addition, the standard describes the requirements for sports cars in order to be allowed to participate in road traffic on public roads, and gives the forms of documents, drawn up on the results of the examination. According to the standard, transport expertise is carried out by accredited experts. It includes an inspection and identification of vehicles, checking for compliance with the sports segment and the formation of the results of the examination in the form of a document confirming or not confirming whether the vehicle belongs to the sports category.
GOST R 59021-2020, Petroleum and natural gas industries. Cargo operations and LNG bunkering. General requirements. The use of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a marine fuel contributes to the prevention of atmospheric pollution. The document is designed to support the increasing use of LNG by ships and inland river vessels. The standard establishes rules and procedures for LNG bunkering (vessel fuelling) to ensure an adequate level of safety and to regulate the planning of this procedure. According to the document, LNG bunkering must be carried out by one of the following methods: "vessel" - "vessel", "shore" - "vessel" ("tanker truck" - "vessel", "rail tanker" - "vessel", "tank-container" - "vessel", "terminal" - "vessel").
