Rosstandart will carry out controlled purchases of spare parts for cars

Autoreview – Rosstandart has announced imminent start to controlled purchases of cars and spare parts for cars, due to poor quality assembly and production, which poses a threat to the lives and health of citizens. The Ministry of Industry and Commerce has issued amendments to the technical regulation laws and submitted them to the approval of government, in order for the implementation of the project.

The aim of the project is to reduce the number of counterfeit products and falsification. The agency has identified rogue traders, selling spare parts for cars with VTA (Vehicle Type Approval) documentation attached last year. However, such a certificate can only be issued for spare parts by the manufacturer itself or an authorised representative, similar to the process on the conveyors of the manufacturer.

Child seats, wheels and a number of other products will be subject to control, alongside spare parts. However, Rosstandart has stated that the purchases will be carried out only in case of serious violations and within the framework of random checks.
