Ramiz Hasanov: Azerbaijani government to receive legislative documents on the productive sphere control
A proposal to double the finances provided by the government to audit the production facilities was presented to the Ministry of Economic Development, Head of the State Agency on Standardization, Metrology and Patent, Ramiz Hasanov told journalists, Trend reports.
The State Agency on Standardization, Metrology and Patent needs more finances to audit and discover facilities involved in the illegal production. Our staff spends several days to accredit the large production laboratory. 20 manats are spend to check, pack the equipment and conduct other relevant works. However, abroad they provide $30,000 for this sort of works. We have raised the issue that 20 manats is too few we want to double the tariffs, Hasanov said
The relevant documents were prepared and presented to the government on the legislative matters, he said. These documents are now under scrutiny.
The State Agency has no authority to audit stores for fake goods; this duty was entrusted to the Ministry of Economic Development. The State Agency only has control over the production sphere. In general, I think that quality control mechanism is at the very low level now. The reason is homogeneity in the area. One enterprise is usually controlled by several organizations. For example, a sausage factory should have the veterinary control, sanitary control and the State Standardization Agency control. I believe that these duties should be separated, he said.
