Russia Introduces New Seismic Safety Certification System
Russia’s Rostekhnadzor has registered the Seismic Safety certification system, which has become a new tool to assess the equipment safety under seismic activity conditions. The new voluntary certification system has been developed by the specialists of JSC PromStandart.
According to PromStandart Director General Yana Kozlova, this quality mark was elaborated in response to the requests of clients who need objective means for assessing the seismic safety of their equipment.
“There was no voluntary system for seismic resistance, vibration resistance, vibration strength and resistance to external factors in Russia, so the Seismic Safety certification system has become an objective and reliable tool for assessing the safety of machinery, equipment, instruments and other industrial products under seismic activity conditions,” Mrs. Kozlova stated.
