Rosstandart: certificates are automatically renewed
MOSCOW, May 8, 2020 - Rosstandart has extended by one year the validity period of certificates of approval of the type of measuring instruments, which expire from May 28 to November 27, 2020. The application deadline for renewal of such certificates has expired after March 30, 2020. This decision was made in accordance with the action plan aimed at supporting Russian manufacturers - owners of measuring instruments in the context of the spread of the new coronavirus infection COVID-19.
The validity period is automatically extended and does not require an application from the owner of the measuring instruments and the renewal of the certificate itself. If the application has already been submitted, it can be withdrawn and also use automatic renewal in accordance with Rosstandart order No. 755 of April 17, 2020.
At the same time, the standard procedure for extending the validity of certificates for five years continues. The right to choose an option remains with the owner of the measuring instruments.
The order does not apply only to cases of extending the validity period of the certificate for the type approval of measuring instruments under the intergovernmental Agreement of the member states of the Commonwealth of Independent States on the mutual recognition of test results for the purpose of type approval, metrological certification, verification and calibration of measuring instruments (done in Burabay , Republic of Kazakhstan, May 29, 2015).
