The Ministry of Construction of Russia eliminates the need to obtain technical certificates for assessing the suitability of facade thermal insulation composite systems with external plaster layers (SFTC). This was made possible thanks to the developed system of regulatory documents. This was announced by Deputy Minister of Construction, Housing and Communal Services of the Russian Federation Dmitry Volkov. “The cancellation of obtaining technical certificates at SFTC solves important problems. Firstly, it removes the barrier for new players to enter the market of stucco facade systems, and secondly, it contributes to increased competition and improved product quality. Over the past 20 years, a system of issuing technical certificates to the SFTC has been operating and such regulation had its justification. However, now, thanks to the developed system of regulatory documents, there is no need for technical certificates. We think it expedient to continue work to reduce them in other areas, ” - said Dmitry Volkov.
