The cost of certificates for micro-business will decrease in Kazakhstanadmin
In November, the Mazhilis members sent a deputy request to the Minister of Trade and Integration of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Serik Zhumangarin, with a request to simplify the certification of goods for craft industries. According to the deputies, today craft or home-made industries produce high-quality products and are ready for further development and competition, but this is hindered by the certification system.
In 2023, for the convenience of entrepreneurs, the electronic system “E-CTRM” (electronic committee for technical regulation and metrology) will work. Currently, the “E-CTRM” system is launched as a pilot project. It is aimed at automating the maintenance of registers in the field of technical regulation, providing, updating technical regulations and standards, limiting the domestic market from dangerous and low-quality (non-standard) products, and reducing technical barriers in technical regulation.
If the goods belong to the same type according to their intended purpose and are produced by the same manufacturer from the same type of materials, then it is allowed to obtain one document, which is a significant relief to the applicant. This is how Deputy Prime Minister – Minister of Trade and Integration Serik Zhumangarin answered the deputy’s request, an inbusiness.kz correspondent reports.
The response also noted that during a working meeting with the chairman of the Kazakhstan Association of Conformity Assessment Bodies, an agreement was reached on signing a memorandum on a voluntary reduction in prices for conformity assessment services on the list of micro-entrepreneurship entities and product groups. This work is planned to be completed by the end of this year.
