The issue contains complete information on the procedure for examination of project documentation in connection with Order No. 165/pr.
“We welcome this legislative initiative. The simplified procedure for the STU preparation makes this tool more accessible for customers in conditions where urgent changes to the design documentation are required. Moreover, the cost of work is likely to be decreased upon STU being coordinated by the companies specialized in regulatory and technical support for design work. This is a positive signal for the market,” said Sergey Panov, Deputy Head of the Pozhneftehim Group of Companies.
The coordination of STU on fire safety is now carried out in accordance with the Administrative Regulations of the Ministry of Emergencies of Russia. The participation of the Ministry of Construction of Russia and Moskomekspertiza is maintained for fire related STU with technical specifications that contain technical requirements under the Federal Law of July 22, 2008 No. 123-FZ and technical requirements under the Federal Law of 30.12.2009 No. 384-FZ.
A simplified procedure for the approval of special technical conditions makes it possible to review the timing of projects and resources for the preparation of supporting documentation. In addition, the Order provides for further updating the regulatory and technical legislation in accordance with international and domestic practice.

The document established that the Regulatory and Technical Council is obliged to quarterly formulate recommendations on amendments to national standards and codes of practice on the basis of agreed STU projects.
