Quality control system to be reformed in Armenia

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian Deputy Minister of Economy Mushegh Tumasyan said that the quality control system needs to be improved in Armenia to comply with international standards.

“This opinion is supported not only by international experts and relative commissions. We do understand it,” Tumasyan told a briefing prior to public discussions of the project on amendment of the Armenian quality control system.

According to the Deputy Minister, a precondition was set on reformation of the system during the process of European integration, including an important stage of economic integration, which in its turn envisages trade integration. “We need to protect consumers’ rights in our country and have a safe production at the internal market to start negotiations on free trade with EU. Besides, we need to export Armenian products to European countries. That is why we have initiated the reforms,” he said.

The Deputy Minister noted that reforms will be implemented in three basic directions: standardization and accreditation; technical regulations and market control; test, control checks and certification.

For his part, Armenian Minister of Economy Yeritsyan noted during the public discussion that “EU is a strongly controlled market requiring high standards, and our companies face difficulties in complying with them.” “The reforms are aimed at increasing the competitiveness of Armenia’s economy and increasing the country’s export potential,” he noted.
