Russian Authorities have Adopted the Project on Electronic Registration of Results of Metrological Services 
December 4, 2019 - Russian State Duma adopted on first reading a bill on the priority of electronic registration of metrological work results (draft federal law No. 808818-7 “On amendments to the Federal Law“ “On ensuring the unity of measurements” (in regards to electronic registration of results of services).
According to the Russian minister of trade and industry, electronic registration of verification results and type approval of measuring instruments will be the only legally significant confirmation of the results of metrological services. Issuance of paper certificates will remain possible, but not mandatory, and only at the request of the applicant. After the specialist completes the verification, he will have to enter its results into the registry of Rosstandart. The applicant will receive a legally valid confirmation of the verification of the device and will be informed about the date of the next verification.
The head of Rosstandart indicated that an alternative “circulation” of paper evidence generates a fictitious performance of metrological services and the appearance of fake documents. It will be possible to exclude it only by unambiguous electronic recording of the results of verification and approval of the types of measuring instruments. At the same time, the project provides for deferred deadlines for the preparation of the necessary infrastructure and adaptation to it of all the participants in metrological services.
The initiative will provide access to these data of inspection bodies for all consumers and participants of metrological activities.
