Extended session of the Research and Technology Board of the Russian Standardization Institute was held on September 18, 2023. This event took place in the Russian Standardization Institute.
The following distinguished guests participated in the event - CEO of the Federal Agency on Technical Regulating and Metrology (GOST R) Anton Shalaev, Minister in charge of technical regulation of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) Viktor Nazarenko, Director of the Research and Production Republican Unitary Enterprise “Belarusian state institute for standardization and certification” (BelGISS) Alexander Skuratov, Deputies CEO of GOST R and Heads of GOST R Departments, representatives of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) and Members of the EEC Council.
The key topic of discussion was issues related to the stages of creating a digital platform for technical regulation of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU).
CEO of GOST R Anton Shalaev noted the following opening the extended session: “GOST R started digital transformations of national standardization system in 2017. Nowadays standardization and technical regulation is changing significantly. In the context of the work of the EAEU it is important that the authorized bodies of the participating states act together in order to achieve common goals for digitalization in the field of standardization and technical regulation”.
Minister in charge of technical regulation of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) Viktor Nazarenko told about important goals for successful implementation of the Project “Digital technical regulation within the EAEU”.
“Nowadays together we can create a digital platform that will unite everything that the states - the EAEU Members and the EEC are doing. Creation of a "digital ecosystem" of product safety and quality taking into account use of advanced technologies and innovative solutions will become a driver for the development of industrial enterprises of the EAEU and it will protect the Union market from unsafe and low-quality goods”.
Director General of the Russian Standardization Institute Denis Mironov elaborated on perspective directions of digital transformation of technical regulation and standardization in the Russian Federation and the latest structural trends in the update of the Russian ecosystem “Beresta 2.0” in which new units were implemented including with use of artificial intelligence (AI).
Denis Mironov told that the Russian Institute of Standardization had very ambitious goals for digitalization.
He highlighted that Russian Standardization Institute was developing a digital standard format that could be actively used from the middle of next year and then standardization and technical regulation would meet the needs of industry in a greater extent.
Experts of the Russian Standardization Institute, participants of the extended session of the Research and Technology Board Dmitry Kasichin and Sergey Trofimov demonstrated new functional opportunities of the Russian ecosystem “Beresta 2.0” using the example of a data storage system solution according to standards from the Federal Information Collection of Standards (MDM system), a prototype of business process management in regard to a typical technical committee website and submission of proposals to the national standardization plan, subsequent approval of these proposals as well as a prototype for creating a requirement-oriented document on standardization based on recognition XML-AI documents on standardization.
Special attention was paid to the matters of interaction in the field of digitalization and cooperation within joint development of information systems and participation of the Russian Standardization Institute and BelGISS in the implementation of the Project “Digital technical regulation within the EAEU”.
Director of the Research and Production Republican Unitary Enterprise “Belarusian state institute for standardization and certification” (BelGISS) Alexander Skuratov told about the structure, mechanism of work and development of an official full-text information system being implemented on the basis of state information resources in the field of technical regulation and standardization of the Republic of Belarus, the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Russian Federation - the Information System “The Customs Union. Technical regulation”.
Director of BelGISS noted that the above-mentioned information resource that had been functioning since 2015 solved the problem of general information supply in the field of technical regulation and standardization, providing access to relevant requirements to all interested parties, primarily industry and business.
Alexander Skuratov highlighted that it was not only the source of standards: all the data in the system were interconnected and this fact attached special value to this resource. He also said that the revision of the system carried out during the extended session showed a series of technical opportunities that could be considered for further development of this product in the light of digitalization.
Topics of product identification, content preparation for information systems (IS), optimization of product identification and cataloging processes with the help of IS pilot projects were also covered during the extended session of the Research and Technology Board of the Russian Standardization Institute .
Summing up the session, the participants unanimously decided that the development of the unified information system within the framework of the Project “Digital technical regulation within the EAEU” should be conducted in a dialogue between all the States - the EAEU Members and it was also necessary to develop an agreed position on proposals that had already being implemented within the framework of the Project.
