Association «Rosspetsmash» joined the Interdepartmental Working Group on Combating Counterfeiting

Vyacheslav Pronin, Deputy Director of the Rosspetsmash Association, has been appointed executive secretary of the Interdepartmental Sectoral Working Group on Countering the Illicit Trafficking of Automotive Products and Specialized Mechanical Engineering.


One of the main topics at the first meeting was the development of a test base for agricultural engineering, self-propelled machines and other types of machinery.

Experts reported on the problem of laboratory shortages for all necessary tests of engineering products. This makes it difficult to carry out work on the assessment of the compliance of machinery with the requirements.

According to Vyacheslav Pronin, such tests will allow to separate counterfeit products from the Russian market. It is necessary to expand them and strengthen control over suppliers of machinery.

The group was created by the decision of the Minister of Industry and Trade of Russia Denis Manturov and should become a platform for developing mechanisms to combat the illicit traffic in the automotive industry and specialized engineering.

«Участие в этой работе широкого круга органов власти, бизнеса, отраслевых объединений и экспертов позволит находить эффективные механизмы решения проблем в этой сфере. И это первое, установочное заседание и та дискуссия, которая состоялась, – явное тому подтверждение», – отметил в заключительном слове Алексей Абрамов.
