Our area of competency: Earth Moving Machines

Machines for excavating, loading, transporting, spreading and compacting earth and other materials.

Machines designed according to performance based specifications of ISO standards developed in ISO/TC 127



Why are international standards so important to us5 l.jpg
Why are international standards so important to us?

  • Give a good foundation for the development of new regulations

  • Provide performance based specifications to design our machines

  • widely accepted because developed by the very best international technical experts

  • Facilitate communication in an international market

  • We are in a low volume and global market that needs global standards and regulations to avoid producing different machine models for Asia, Europe and North America

  • Develop and maintain a complete set of reasonable ISO standards, and help promote the ISO standards as national standards and regulations for all countries.

Standards in National Regulations

  • The ISO/TC 127 Standards are used for compliance with regulations in the EU, the USA and in Japan.

  • The ISO/TC 127 Standards are being promoted as national standards and as the basis for regulations for China, Russia and India.

  • China is actively adopting the ISO standards and we are trying to work with Russia to encourage the adoption and use of UN/ECE Common Regulatory Objective (CRO) based on ISO standards. Standards meetings are planned with India.

    • Lets see the Russian case

Russia – New Technical Legislation

  • Up to now:

    • no Technical Legislation ; State Standards regulate all Technical Regulation. They are mandatory documents.

    • In addition to State Standards we have Industry Standards and Regulations. Ministries do supervise the product compliance.

    • We have to work with 4 Certification Bodies

      • Ministry of Communication (Gen Sets)

      • Gosgortehnazor/Rostehnatzor (Safety Ministry – dangerous products)

      • GostR

      • Hygienic

  • Duma approved a new Russian Federal Law N0. 184.03 on Technical Regulation in Y2002

  • The RF law states: International Standards.. May be used.. As a basis for the development of a draft TR


New russian technical regulation l.jpg
New Russian Technical Regulation

  • We are encouraging Russia to follow the UNECE WP 6 “International Model for Technical Harmonization”.

  • However, ISO standards cannot be referenced in the new Technical Regulation.

  • Approved national standards can be used to show compliance with the technical requirements.

  • We are trying to help Russia adopt the ISO/TC 127 as approved national standards so that they can be used for the technical requirements of the new Technical Regulation.
