Since June 2019, 194 documents on the standardization of interstate and national level have come into force. Among them are standards for bookselling furniture, nanomaterials, glass packaging, gas turbines, road transport, explosive environments, public roads, as well as standards in the field of occupational safety.
"STANDARTINFORM" has prepared an overview of some of them.
GOST R 54937–2018 «Guidelines for standards developers to address accessibility» introduced instead of GOST R 54937-2012/Guide ISO/IEC 71:2001 and provides: a brief overview of modern terminology in the field of creating an accessible environment; aspects that contribute to the process of developing standards that set requirements for it; a set of objectives; descriptions of the characteristics inherent in persons with disabilities and the resulting design solutions; principles to ensure that the needs of users in an accessible environment and the implementation of project decisions shown in the standards.
GOST R 54985–2018 «Guidelines for small enterprises on implementation of quality management system based on ISO 9001:2015» introduced instead of GOST R 54985–2012 and establishes requirements for the quality management system in cases where the organization needs to demonstrate its ability to constantly deliver products and(or) services that meet the requirements of consumers and legislative, regulatory legal requirements.
