The Rostekhnadzor permit for a series of devices is no longer needed

27 November 2011

The Rostekhnadzor permit for a series of devices is no longer neededOn October 21, 2011 came into force the federal law No 248 of 19/07/2011 "On the modification of some legislative acts of the Russian Federation in relation to the implementation of the provisions of federal law "On technical regulation". In particular, Article 24 of the Law No.  248 amended the Article 7 of the Federal Law No. 116 of 21/07/1997 "On the safety of industrial plants considered dangerous." The changes have literally "dismantled" the current rules on issuing the permits to use of Rostekhnadzor. The document was required for putting into operation a certain types of technical devices.

The Paragraph 5 and 6 of Art. 7 of the Law No. 116 have been modified as follows:

Paragraph 5. The technical devices used in industrial plants considered dangerous during their use are subject to technical expertise provided by law, only against the same was not provided another form of conformity assessment pursuant to the mandatory requirements under the Regulations technical.

Paragraph 6. Putting into operation a technical devices in the plant considered as hazardous may be permitted only after obtaining the permit to use, issued by the Federal Service for ecological, technological and nuclear supervision (Rostekhnadzor), only in respect of the above devices is not been provided another form of conformity assessment pursuant to the mandatory requirements under the Technical Regulations.

In other words, the changes made to Article. 7 paragraphs 5 and 6 mean that the granting of permission for use of Rostekhnadzor technical devices which also fall within the technical regulations is no longer an obligation, as the only forms of conformity assessment provided by the Technical Regulations certification is required with the issuance of the certificate required, and the declaration of conformity.

For some time Rostekhnadzor continue to issue the permit application, but only those technical devices that are the subject of technical regulations have not yet entered into force, such as the Technical Regulations for Electrical apparatus for potentially explosive atmospheres.
