Azerbaijani State Committee on Standardization dissatisfied with work to establish standard center
Azerbaijan, Baku, October 11 / Trend U. Ismayilova /
The Azerbaijani State Committee on Standardization, Metrology and Patents is dissatisfied with work conducted to establish a standard center in Azerbaijan, head of the State Committee, Ramiz Hasanov, said in an interview posted at the website of ruling New Azerbaijan party.
"Establishment of a standard center is one of those issues which are under special attention of the State Committee," Hasanov said.
He said that certain actions are observed to establish the center but they are insufficient.
Hasanov said that it is difficult to speak about quality of goods and services in case of lack of precise measuring and disparity with their international standards.
Presently, the Azerbaijani State Committee on Standardization, Metrology and Patents operates to introduce bought standards. Programs to expand standard basis are also designed, Hasanov said.
"Establishment of a standard center is a difficult but effective process characterizing economic potential of the country," Hasanov said.
He said that the State Committee must periodically check quality of equipment and measuring devices. So, it is necessary to apply to European countries. As a result, these countries receive huge funds.
"We decided to establish a standard center in Azerbaijan to prevent this process. We believe that the center will launch its activity soon and contribute to Azerbaijani economy," Hasanov said.
A standard center in Azerbaijan is being established upon EU grant. Establishment of the center will take three years and €15 million will be spent for its financing upon the international experts' appraisal.
