The national member body representing Kazakhstan within IECEE is the Committee of Technical Regulation and Metrology of the Kazakh Ministry of Industry and New Technologies.
Benefits for Kazakhstan and for EEC
Kazakhstan’s membership of IECEE now puts it on a par with its partners in the EEC (Eurasian Economic Commission), a three-member Customs Union whose other members are the Republic of Belarus and the Russian Federation.
This crucial move by Kazakhstan was the immediate result of negotiations held between the IEC and the EEC in Moscow, Russian Federation, in late September. IECEE membership provides Kazakhstan and its EEC partners with a strong platform for enhancing competitiveness. IECEE proof of compliance and certification will be highly beneficial to all three economies in facilitating the import of electrical and electronic goods as well as the export of products manufactured in the region.
Quality and safety for all
Today, every aspect of technology is extremely complex, from its production to its consumption. IECEE membership will provide EEC consumers, producers and trade partners with the quality assurance they need. It will ensure that products and equipment sold in the EEC, whether imported or manufactured locally, will meet the highest safety, reliability and performance requirements.
IECEE membership will also help reduce key barriers to trade – such as cost and time – by removing the significant delays and expense involved in multiple testing and approval procedures. Moreover, it will allow EEC industry to increase product and market competitiveness and diversification, so helping it to gain or maintain global market access.
