A few figures upon on the results of ASIZ work in 2019.
ASIZ is a real force that forms not only the PPE market, but also prepares materials for decision-making by state structures in the interests of the industry. Popular wisdom says: «Heaven helps those who help themselves». First of all the PPE market should be formed by market participants — the end consumer and manufacturers of PPE. No one but we can deal with this issue as professionally as we do.
Now ASIZ unites more than 100 organizations. There are public organizations, the largest Russian manufacturers and distributors, branches and representative offices in Russia of the world’s leading manufacturers, research institutes, certification centers and laboratories, and even whole Associations of specialists and companies. In fact, it is about 500 companies and more than 100,000 people.
For understanding: the total turnover of ASIZ affiliates in Russia in 2019 amounted to more than 100 billion rubles.
Last year ASIZ prepared proposals to the Ministry of Labor of the Russian Federation about supporting the implementation of new innovative PPE, Smart-PPE at Russian enterprises. ASIZ is the only expert on the program for the integration of smart technologies in PPE. In 2020, we plan to support Russian and foreign manufacturers of Smart PPE as well.
From the new year we launched:
Program of public control of certification bodies of PPE.
The program for the new rules’ development for the PPE issuance to workers when transferring to a risk-based approach to labor protection in the Russian Federation. At the moment, the issuance of PPE to workers is regulated by the standards of extradition and specialties.
