There are over 9,000 regulatory acts in Russia that establish mandatory requirements for product quality assessment, many of them are outdated and have not been reviewed for over 20 years.
On January 15, 2019, Prime Minister D. Medvedev voiced the idea of the “regulatory guillotine” in Russia. The goal is to revise the mandatory requirements that Producers and state-owned companies must observe in their operations. The "regulatory guillotine" mechanism allows for excessive and ineffective regulation to be eliminated.
The working principle of "regulatory guillotine" will have three outcomes: to leave it in the form it exists, to change or cancel it.
More precisely, the plan envisages the setting up of a unified process and timeframe for development of the relevant regulatory framework (Federal Law "On State Control (Supervision) in the Russian Federation” and a new structure of regulatory control requirements).
At the end of February 2019, in a message to the Federal Assembly, Russian President Vladimir Putin called on the authorities to review all the regulatory legal acts that hinder the development of international and domestic business by 2021.
Based on experience in Russian Federation before, from three possible outcomes will lead the only one: cancel the whole existing system and create a new one from the scratch. The new certification and assessment system must be transparent, accessible and trustful for Customers, Producers, Government.
There will be done dramatically changes in next years in the whole Certification System. Some of them have been already introduced and lead already now to the heavily changes. Some will be expected in next month.
