Russian Ministry of Construction, Housing and Utilities has proposed to implement a new state service of elaboration of conclusions on the new products applicability in the construction sector.
This is what Head of the Ministry, Mikhail Menn, said at a meeting on the subject of innovation development of the construction materials production, held on the 14th of June in the city of Vladimir and chaired by Russian Prime Minister, Dmitry Medvedev.
Mikhail Menn pointed out that the main task of the Construction Ministry in the field of innovation development of the construction materials production is to ensure a rapid implementation of the advanced products, structures, materials and technologies in the construction sector.
In order to eliminate normative barriers in the industry’s technical regulation, new rules are being elaborated and the existing ones are being updated. This work is carried out on a basis of the state assignment. These rules are intended to promote a widespread use of innovation construction materials, devices and technologies.
For elaboration of technical regulations for new products, the majority of the developed countries have the applicability confirmation procedure for using such products in the construction. In Russia, this procedure is implemented by the Construction Ministry.
