Design and decoration projects using Panespol’s® extensive range of wall covering panels have full fire resistance certification within Russian territory.
These panels comply with the full technical regulations laid down by Russia and tested for fire resistance and combustibility by the required third-party certifying body.
The formula certified by the Russian autorities is one of own Panespol’s® own patents.
A very wide range of products imported into the Russian Federation are subject to complex technical regulations, with certifications only issued following successful testing of, among other aspects, fire safety aspects.
Russia’s accession to the World Trade Organisation dates from 2012, and its commitment to the Technical Barriers to Trade Agreement binds it to standards and conformity assessment procedures compatible to those applied worldwide.
The European Union is one of the bodies that oversees co-operation with Russia on these important product regulation questions. Regulatory cooperation between the EU and Russia is essential to trade, while negotiations constantly take place to seek greater harmonisation of standards.
