The Russian Federal Agency on Technical Regulating and Metrology (GOST R) signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with ASTM International of West Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, U.S. The agencies are seeking to “remove technical barriers in economic and trade relations, create greater efficiency in the development of standards, deliver greater quality products, provide environmental and labor safety, and recognize the mutual benefits to be derived from cooperation in the field of standardization.”

The MOU was signed by Grigory I. Elkin, head of GOST R, and James A. Thomas, president of ASTM International, during an April 4 meeting between the two executives at GOST R headquarters in Moscow.

“With Russia’s aim to join the World Trade Organization in 2008, the MOU is a timely initiative that will foster much greater cooperation between Russia and ASTM International in the development of international standards," Thomas said following the signing.
