Technical regulation

The Law of the Kyrgyz Republic “On the Basics of Technical Regulation in the Kyrgyz Republic”[1] establishes a legal framework  for:

  •  development, adoption, application and compliance with  mandatory requirements for products and/or processes related to their design (including research), production, installation, adjustment, storage, transportation, sale, operation  and recycling;
  • development, adoption, application and compliance with requirements for products or processes related to their design (including research), production, construction, installation, adjustment, storage, transportation, sale, operation, recycling, performance of works, rendering of services, and compliance assessment.

The public authority in charge of technical regulation is the Ministry of Economy of the Kyrgyz Republic,[2] which develops and implements a general  state policy in the area of technical regulation. The Ministry of Economy of the Kyrgyz Republic is also responsible for performance of obligations undertaken by the Kyrgyz Republic under the Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade[3] and Agreement on Application of Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures.[4]

Technical regulations may only be adopted for safety purposes, namely:  

  • Protection of human life and health
  • Environmental protection
  • Protection of life and health of animals and plants
  • Prevention of actions that may mislead consumers of a product

The Government of the Kyrgyz Republic approved the programs for developing the following technical regulations: 

within 2012-2013[5] the general technical regulations on safety of leguminous crops and their derivative products, safety of nuts and nut-based products, safety of the processes of production, storage, transportation, sale and recycling of crop products, safety of veterinary drugs, etc.

In accordance with the above program, in 2012 the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic[6] adopted general technical regulations on electromagnetic compatibility of technical equipment, safety of milk and processed milk products, safety of drugs made in pharmacies, safety of non-alcoholic beverages, etc.

The development and application of technical regulations will contribute to the formation and improvement of the legislation on technical regulation in line with the international standards and requirements. This will ensure appropriate safety with the account of interests of industries and areas of practice. 

 

Standardization

Standardization documents of the Kyrgyz Republic are represented by: 

  •    National standards of the Kyrgyz Republic
  • Standardization rules, norms and recommendations 
  • International (regional) standards
  • National standards of other countries
  • Standards of organizations

International (regional) standards and national standards of other countries are recognized in the Kyrgyz Republic as national standardization documents in accordance with the methodology developed by the national standardization authority – the Standardization and Metrology Centre of the Ministry of Economy of the Kyrgyz Republic.

 

Proof of Conformity and State Supervision of Compliance with Mandatory Requirements 

Measures in this area are closely coordinated with administrative reform, which requires consistent development of respective resolutions of the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic.
