New Zealand, April 10, 2019 - The 42nd Pacific Area Standards Congress (PASC) General Assembly commenced its work in Wellington, New Zealand.
PASC is one of the largest regional standards organizations in the world and the major contributor to the total input of the gross national product of member states. Among 24 current members of PASC are such countries as China, Japan, Republic of Korea, India, South Africa, Singapore, Mexico, USA, Australia and Canada. The Russian Federation was accepted as a full member of PASC in 2018 and also became a member of the principal governing body – PASC Executive Committee.
A key event of the early days was a round table jointly organized with International organization for standardization (ISO) on standards and regulatory stewardship. Presentations were made by representatives of executive authorities of Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, as well as representatives of national standardization bodies of Canada, the USA, India, Malaysia and Russia.
Anton Shalaev, deputy Head of the Federal Agency on Technical Regulating and Metrology (Rosstandart), focused on the application of Russian legislation in the field of standardization. In particular, on the use of references to standards in regulatory legal acts and on participation of the federal executive bodies in the prospective standardization programs development and implementation.
ISO President John Walter underlined the necessity of an active dialogue between standardization bodies (including regional and international organizations) and government authorities.
More than 160 specialists from 30 countries took part in the round table. PASC General Assembly will continue its work until April 11.
