791 GOST and SP for construction will be developed and updated in Russia in 6 years


In 2019-2014, Russia plans to develop and update 791 rules and GOST in the field of construction and design. This is stated in the passport of the national project “Housing and Urban Environment”, which was approved by the Presidium of the Council under the President of Russia on Strategic Development and National Projects.

The document states that in the framework of the national project, which is implemented from October 2018 to December 31, 2014, the development of 110 and updating of 216 sets of rules is forecasted. For six years, it is also planned to develop 131 construction standards and update 333 GOSTs.

According to the results of the current year, within the framework of the regulatory and technical regulation, which is supervised by the Ministry of Construction of Russia, it is planned to develop 16 sets of rules and 31 GOST, as well as update 42 joint ventures and 44 standards.

The improvement of regulatory and technical regulation is carried out by the Ministry of Construction on the basis of the Federal Center for Standardization, Standardization and Technical Compliance Assessment in Construction. By the beginning of 2018, the fund of regulatory technical documents amounted to 314 sets of rules (of which 184 are new, 130 contain provisions updated in the last 3 years) and 1080 standards.

Earlier, the head of the Ministry of Construction of Russia, Vladimir Yakushev, in an interview with SG noted that in the 90s and the beginning of 2000, the state actually did not develop regulatory and technical documents for the construction industry, market participants were doing it at their own expense. As a result, there was a shortage in technical regulation, which led to a technological lag in the industry. Therefore, according to the minister, the department conducted an inventory of documents, identified those that need to be reviewed, changed and updated, identified areas where development of new joint ventures was required. This now systematic work will continue, the head of the Ministry of Construction stressed.
