Adapting of the economy to the European standards to widen export opportunities of Ukraine
Adoption of the draft law "On Standardization", prepared by the Ministry of Economical Development and Trade of Ukraine, imposing the European approaches in the field of standardization, will allow to Ukrainian commodity producers to use of its export potential in full measure, declared Pavlo Sheremeta, Minister of Economical Development.
He stressed that transition of the Ukrainian economy to the European standards is not the requirement of the EU, but only the logical step to expand the export potential of the country.
According to the Minister, the reporting draft law provides some departure from the industry standards. At the same time, the corporate standards of companies as well as some national ones will still remain, in order to fix the level of quality, which will be required.
P.Sheremeta explained that imposition of self determination in observance of the standards is one of the innovations of the document. So, the entrepreneurs will make their own decision - to use or not these or other standards.
According to the Minister, transition to the new standards will not increase the cost of commodities, but can definitely improve its qualitative indices.
