Today our society, our industry is moving away from mandatory certification, which appeared in the early 90-ies in order to protect domestic consumers from the muddy stream pouring into the country low quality goods.

Reducing the number of licensed activities – is also one of the requirements of Russia's entry into the World Trade Organization.
