Ural Vagon Zavod Gets License to Test Special-Purpose Vehicles

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, May 26, 2017. Ural Vagon Zavod Corporation’s head plant in Nizhniy Tagil now holds a license to get its testing equipment certified; the equipment in question is used to make sure the company’s defense industry goods meet the necessary requirements, the corporation’s press service reports.

The Federal Agency on Technical Regulation and Metrology’s All-Russian Scientific Research Institute for Physical & Radio-technical Measurements issued the necessary approval by a board of experts, effective March 20, 2017.

The approval means Ural Vagon Zavod can now do its own certification of testing equipment that is used for special-purpose vehicle compliance checks.

Head of the company’s metrological service Alexander Levin says they have already started checking and inspecting the condition of their testing equipment subject to certification.

‘Our department committees did a lot to determine their equipment’s current state based on the new GOST requirements and normative documents. A report will be produced by the committees and our Design Office for Mechanization & Automation on every single equipment unit in order to decide whether the design documentation needs to be adjusted or whether upgrades are necessary. This will ensure the accuracy of our components and spare parts-testing process,’ he said.
