The development of elevator industry in Russia in terms of self-regulation

This conference, unprecedented in scale and representativeness, has gone beyond the usual business meeting and resulted in a very comprehensive and full major activities and events forum.

The conference was held on November 16th. The next day, there were general meetings of self-regulatory organizations elevator areas: Russian lift association, Interregional Association of elevator companies, DT «Liftservis» and «Rusekspertlift.» November 17 was a tour to the factory «MEL», where the participants got acquainted with the development of a new factory -elevator economy-class European level with energy-saving systems.

Technical regulations

The conference was held in a month, and its members could literally on the heels of the first results of practical application of this document. But for all its advantages, serious concern was the fact that with the beginning of a technical regulation to enter into operation mounted lifts became impossible.

The lack of coordination between ministries and departments creates serious problems for the industry. IG Dyakov thinks that they can be solved efforts of the Interagency Working Group, which is formed on the basis of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia.

SA Evdokimov, «October 14 Technical Regulations entered into force, and probably is not worth discussing is now, good or bad, whether all the points it addresses. It is gratifying to note that the regulations adopted and regulates the activities of private industry. «

— The main task — said A. Evdokimov, — ensure the safety of lifts and harmonious organization of all processes associated with the elevator industry, from design to operation and recycling.

In this regard, a lot of work in terms of public policy of legal regulation in the sphere of utilization:

— According to the law «On technical regulation», a process associated with the products. It concerns, including elevators and facilities. We have in this area to work together and adopt regulations governing the processes associated with lifts, exhaust their resources and not subject to further use.

As a representative of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, which was the main executor of development of technical regulations «On the safety of lifts», AS Evdokimov said that he is ready to provide any clarification on all issues which «arise in connection with the commissioning of lifts and further processes in this field.»

The existence of sufficiently serious difficulties associated with the closure of the programs replacing the elevators, which were financed, including the Fund promote the development of housing and communal services in connection with the entry into force of the Technical Regulations, said Advisor to Director General Fund Housing SN Miroshnikov. According to him, it «imposes on all of us a special obligation»:

— I think we need to knock together more actively to the government, because even close these programs, make reports on them, without entering into effect elevators, of course, impossible. Here we have a lot of joint work. I think it will be interesting and effective.

Head of Department of Federal State Unitary Enterprise «All-Russian Research Institute of Standardization engineering» VA Popov gave a presentation on a topic related to the question of acceptance of the lifts, — the accreditation of certification organizations and experts in the elevator industry in Russia.

On peculiarities of state supervision over the lifting facilities in terms of entry into force of the technical regulations «On the safety of lifts» the chief department of boiler inspection and supervision of elevating structures rostekhnadzor VV Chernyshev. Noting that the changed scheme of supervision in general, he said:

— With the introduction of the Technical Regulations snap inspections of knowledge engineering and technical workers will not. During regular inspections of knowledge should be taken into account questions of technical regulations and available at the time of the audit of national standards and codes of practice.

On the question of acceptance into operation of lifts as the technical devices VV Chernyshev said that Rostekhnadzor inspectors participate in this procedure, the Technical Regulations revoked. Regarding the periodical technical examinations, he said:

— As before, our inspectors checked the elevators so they will check them in accordance with the Federal Law # 294 «On the protection of the legal entity» 2 and FZ-1163. That is, in terms of check lift, in principle, nothing has changed.

VV Chernyshev drew attention to the set of rules that should be developed in connection with the introduction of the Technical Regulations:

Drafts of these documents are available on the website 15 oktyabrya4 RTN. You have to give their feedback on them, otherwise they will be accepted in the form of what are now.

I want to stress — said VV Chernyshev — that set of rules, as well as the national standard is not mandatory, in accordance with the requirements of the Technical Regulations. Therefore Rostekhnadzor decision: after the completion of the approval procedure for a set of rules posted on the official websites of the territorial bodies of Rostekhnadzor information on those organizations that will work on this set of rules. It is clear that you can not make use of what is voluntary, but we have to inform the operating organization of the user lifts the one who works for us on the set of rules.

General Director of JSC «STC» Industrial safety «VS Kotelnikov listed in his report to the problems associated with the application of technical regulations «On the safety of lifts»:

— First. The Technical Regulations introduced two forms of conformity assessment, which are used for the same elevator — a mandatory certification before entering the elevator up and the declaration at the stage of the lift into operation (after the installation). This is contrary to the federal law «On Technical Regulation» dated December 27, 2002 № 184-FZ, the technical regulations «On the safety of machinery and equipment», entered into force September 25, 2010, as well as international practice conformity product requirements of technical regulations. Use of the product for one of the two forms of conformity creates additional barriers to the use of these products.

Second. In the operating phase of the elevator lifts conformity assessment lies with the certification bodies that do not comply with the legislation on technical regulation, since certification bodies carry out work on certification of products before release it into circulation, and not at the stage of operation. Technical diagnostirova-nieliftov at the stage of their operation, including elevators with expired service life (25 years), should carry out the organization with experts certified to conduct diagnostics and calculation of residual life. The legislation of these functions are not assigned to the certification bodies.

Third. From regulations excluded the operating organization (the organization operating the building, including the combined control services) and their functions transferred to specialized institutions elevator that leads to a radical change in the existing system of operation of elevators.

Developed and approved a list of standards. Rules of the organization of safe operation of lifts and rules of the modernization of elevators currently available.

A cursor in the beginning of his speech, expressed the wish «to joint efforts, in particular in addressing the technical regulation in the industry has developed a kind of common position, and summarized in the framework of the National Union of lift self-regulatory organizations.»

He said that the Customs Union Commission approved a work plan for the technical regulations of the Customs Union, which includes technical regulations and Elevator. After its adoption by the national regulations will be considered null and void. Regarding the procedures for developing technical regulations AA Polozkov said:

— On approval by the Commission of the Customs Union, the order of development of technical regulations of the Customs Union, provided: a) discussion of the draft regulations at the national level and the direction of the proposals, comments, etc. party developers; b) to the Customs Union, we can also make a version of the draft regulations of the Customs Union in relation to the elevators to the Kazakh side of any of our project to take what suits us, and as comments and suggestions to direct the developer.

AS Evdokimov on the development of technical regulations of EurAsEC noted:

— I think our task — as much as possible to harmonize this document with our regulations, taking into account all available issues and gaps.

VV Chernyshev drew attention to the fact that the working group that is developing the technical regulations for elevators, only one technician:

— We have sent a letter to the Ministry of Industry has requested to be removed from this Technical Commission representatives, who have no relation to the technical devices, that is not aware of the situation. And there is a proposal to include the experts that have a long period of time engaged in the exploitation, manufacture of lifts, etc.

I. Wolf Trop reminded of how waged development of technical regulations «On the safety of lifts» and national standards, which reinforce and concretize its general requirements.

He spoke about the progress of the national standard «energy efficiency of elevators» and urged the industry professionals to participate in the discussion of the draft of the normative document necessitated by Russian law.

Vice-president of the Russian association of lift Y. Radin made at the conference is very important for all common lift organizations in the country Announcement of the establishment of information-analytical center.

— In one of the accepted national standards on conformity assessment of lifts, commissioned, says that all the elevators should be subject to registration and registration. So a month ago, the leadership has addressed Rosstandart Lifting community with a proposal to create a database of the National Union body lift self-regulatory organizations, which would record all the elevators in Russia. Thus should be established all-Russian base of elevators, with which it will be possible to know how many and which lifts available in a particular region of the country, the whole of Russia, introduced these lifts in operation, in which they maintained, had a complete or partial technical inspection, etc. Obviously, such a framework is needed and Rostekhnadzor, and all federal agencies.

Oversee the matter entrusted to the representative of the Ministry of Environment AS Yevdokimov. Directly in the information-analytical center will participate V.A.Tishin and S.A.Chernyshov.

Regarding the dissemination of the Federal Law № 116-FZ on the elevators after the entry into force of the technical regulations «On the safety of lifts» inflamed the debate. On the basis of the arguments made by its participants, we can draw only one conclusion: as long as it will enter into force clarifying the question of the documents which will be clearly spelled out the division of spheres of influence of technical regulations and the FL-116, the elevator remains hazardous production facilities, and the inspector RTN is to verify compliance with the complex requirements and technical regulations «On the safety of lifts» and the 116th Federal Law «On Industrial Safety», and other normative documents.

In general, despite concerns from experts that were before the introduction of the Technical Regulations «On the safety of lifts» because, despite the still difficult, the participants reached a consensus that the system still worked. Without transition managed to establish certification Lift products, to overcome the difficult situation with the certification test centers, with retraining of personnel, to solve a number of other serious problems. And it can be regarded as the first major victory of lift self-regulatory organizations, achieved by joint efforts.

The conference was attended by representatives of all ministries and departments involved in the process of introducing a technical regulation, so the audience first-hand information about the state of affairs at the moment.


A series of presentations was devoted to issues related to the creation of self-regulatory organizations in the elevator area. Either way, the introduction of the institute of self-regulation as the primary mechanism for the consolidation of the industry, spoke almost every speaker.

Chairman of the Committee for Construction and Housing-Russian public organization «Support of Russia», a member of the National Union of Self-Regulatory Organizations lift EI Shlemenko including milestone in the work and life of industry events in 2010 along with the introduction of the Technical Regulations noted the industry’s transition to self-regulation and the creation of the National Union of lift self-regulatory organizations:

— This is a step forward. We have long been talking about the fact that the industry must consolidate, should develop a strategy for its development, its internal rules of operation, should set higher goals.

EI Shlemenko briefed the participants of the conference with some preliminary results of the monitoring, which is a non-profit partnership «Inter-regional association of construction companies small and medium business support» is carried out to analyze: what, in fact, changed and in what direction due to the introduction of self-regulation?

According to EI Shlemenkova, today held as the process of self-regulation, but «it has not yet held as a regulatory tool.»

— Our main tactical task — he said — is that self-regulation is very clearly analyzed the positive and negative aspects, which are now taking place, and in time to make adjustments. In no case can not create precedents which discredit the very idea. The idea itself is good. The idea, maybe even a little ahead of the level of development of our economic relations. Let’s refer to this indifferent. Let’s take our community to try to influence the decisions that occur during the formation of the regulatory framework of self-regulation.

Talking about the further development of self-regulation in the framework of the National Union of lift self-regulatory organizations, SA Chernyshov said that taking into account the reduction of state supervision is becoming the most relevant topic for compulsory transfer of the self-regulation of all types of work on the elevators.

— The leaders of the National Union of lift self-regulated organizations have prepared a draft law on self-regulation in the field of safety of lifts, which is now being approved in the appropriate structures. We plan under favorable circumstances to bring this bill to the State Duma for consideration in due course. It is mandatory self-regulation will allow us to ensure the safe operation of elevators and eliminate elements of unfair competition in our ranks.

In 2010, the Russian union of elevator a lot of work in terms of domestic support lifting equipment. According to SA Chernyshov, for the year we can say here is quite significant results:

— According to preliminary estimates, in the framework of the Federal Law № 185-FZ, the delivery elevators of foreign production has fallen by half compared to 2009.

According to observations of SA Chernyshov, 2010 was marked by the theme psevdoproizvodstv who are trying to strengthen its presence in the Russian market of installation of elevators. Russian elevator association with various activities aimed at supporting domestic enterprises, including an effective engagement with groups such as the Fund for Housing Reform, the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation, regional authorities, etc.

President of the self-regulatory organizations «Molo» and ADS «Liftservis» VA

IG Diacov said that the creation of the National Union of lift self-regulatory organizations «will greatly increase our administrative resource». To listen to the opinion of liftovikov various levels of legislative and executive powers, in ministries and departments. Using this lever, said IG Dyakov, you can solve the most acute problems of the industry’s most efficient manner.

According to IG Dyakov, the first conference of the National Union of lift CPO, which first got together four friendly Zamora guliruemye lift organization: SART, Molo, «Liftservis» and «Rusekspertlift» — «is the starting point when we have to say about themselves and about the industry full voice. «


The solution of urgent problems of the elevator areas as modernization of the fleet of the country elevator, improvement of the legal framework for the functioning of elevator companies, etc., is not possible without cooperation with various competent authorities. The participants discussed the optimal scheme of interaction between the National Union of lift self-regulatory organizations with municipal and federal public authorities, public organizations, management companies.

Deputy of the Moscow City Duma AE Klich-ing on behalf of the deputies assured the audience that «the opinion of the lift self-regulatory organizations listen,» consider it within the framework of decisions. He appealed to the representatives of the professional community to support the deputies «in the implementation of initiatives that go, including to you — to reform the housing and communal services, to engage in the field of activity of lifting equipment highly qualified companies, with which are included in the self-regulatory organizations.»

According to SN Miroshnikov, Housing Reform Fund combines with the National Union of Self-Regulatory Organizations lift the general idea:

— This is creating a comfortable and secure living environment for the residents of our country. We are more concerned about the comfort of you — about security. But it is doing overall.

Speaking about the results of the Housing Fund, he noted the contribution it liftovikov:

— In three years, more than 24 billion rubles were directed to modernization and replacement of elevators. This is a very large sum. However, no matter how we were proud of volumes made, it should be noted that because of the existing housing nedoremonta we were able to cope with only 12% of the required volumes. That is, there is still much work. And of those lifts that are no longer used only 7% have been replaced by the program of the Fund. That is, there still achieve less.

SN Miroshnikov said that the Housing Code lays the responsibility for carrying out repairs on the owner:

— However, it is clear that without the involvement of new mechanisms: lending, leasing, without the active participation of the population and all the contractors, without the overall quality of this work would be impossible to achieve results. And most important — taking care to renovate the house were managed properly, the Foundation puts on professionalism, to create a self-regulated organizations, to increase the responsibility of their employees.

Responding to questions from the audience, SN Miroshnikov stressed three points. Firstly, liftovikam in collaboration with management companies and local and regional authorities need to make the program and seek new sources of funding. Secondly, the elevators, which are installed in place of the end of their term, must have high performance, first of all, they need to be energy efficient.

— And the third. With all very equal terms Housing Fund adheres to the requirement to give preference to domestic producers, because our economy — is our well-being.

Cooperate with the Housing Fund liftoviki began almost from the beginning of his work. Cooperation with the Chamber of Commerce of the Russian Federation began a little later. More recently, the Committee of the CCI on entrepreneurship in the housing and utilities sector, which is headed by AV Shirokov, a subcommittee of the elevators. SA supervises them Chernyshov.

In his speech at the conference, AV Shirokov cited data expert estimates, according to which, for the overhaul of apartment houses in the country requires about 10 trillion rubles.

— We are well aware that today the state has no money in its entirety for the overhaul of the housing stock, including elevators. The funds allocated for the restoration of elevators of apartment houses, not enough, not enough, and not to be missed for as long as it will be used some completely different system of funding the restoration of elevators, where they will work mechanisms, such as a bank, leasing, money owner. The most important thing today — it’s not even restore the elevators. Eventually, they will be recovered. The main thing — to realize that the next time the owner of the elevators will only recover their money, and the state budget money in the process will not be present.

According to AV Shirokov, addressing hampered by the fact that «today the apartment building is not subject to real estate, it is not registered anywhere — therefore it is very difficult to participate in the financial processes associated with lending to the work that would have to be in it to spend borrowed funds «.

— Therefore, considering the Chamber of Commerce the issue of financing of housing and communal services, we have proposed leasing and lifting communities work together to identify the country in which the rule of law is necessary to make changes to lease structures can begin working with the community and with the elevator control organizations.

AV It is widely believed that it is necessary to introduce compulsory insurance of common property apartment building, including the elevators.

The big impression on the audience made this idea a representative of the Chamber of Commerce:

— Why liftovikam not think about to begin to redeem the elevators in apartment buildings? When the elevator lifts are the property of organizations providing services to the owners of the house vertical movement in it, then much easier to be solved, and insurance issues, and many other problems.

Even with all the difficulties associated with the introduction of appropriate changes in the regulatory frameworks that are needed to make this possible, AV It is widely believed that the realization of this definite plus his ideas will be that «if the elevator will be a single owner, who will be fully responsible for the serviceability of the elevator in an apartment building.»

Another non-governmental organization was represented at the conference NA Ostarkov — Managing Director of the Russian public organization «Business Russia». He noted that the elevator industry «is one of the most advanced in terms of self-regulation»:

— You are inside the elevator industry learned to join various industry interests, have come to intersectoral issues.

NA Ostarkov said that «Business Russia» was created interdisciplinary Federal Council (FMOS), under which formed the Committee of the elevator industry, chaired by the IG Dyakov. FMOS is a group of independent experts on business development, self-regulation and modernization.

To «Business Russia» to effectively support the elevator industry, according to AT Ostarkova, necessary to formulate an expert position as to «how to develop the industry, how to develop these or other relevant regulations.»

«It is a new, revolutionary step in the construction of feedback interaction with business» N. Ostarkov believes that «Business Russia», on the basis of the Government Decision, charged on a systematic basis to engage in regulatory impact assessment. Now regulations must undergo an examination in public organizations, who were able, together with the Economic Development Ministry to block the movement of the document or an unacceptable offer major amendments to it.

President Omori «National League of enterprises elevator and communal infrastructure» FA Lyachin in his speech reviewed the powers, functions and obligations that Omori took the «National League» and the National Union of lift CPO as a result of concluded soglasheniy5. Thus, by definition FA Lyachin held «reset relations and modernization» of public organizations of the elevator industry.

— The united front liftovikov in collaboration with government agencies can significantly affect the formation of the elevator industry — said the FA Lyachin.

He reminded the participants of the conference that will take place in 2011. V Forum of workers of the elevator industry, under which it is planned to hold a number of business activities, the most important of which — the Fifth International Exhibition «Lift Expo Russia — 2011».

— I invite all of you to this exhibition and as participants, and as visitors — said FA Lyachin. — This is an outstanding event. Today «Lift Expo Russia» is the second largest elevator exhibitions in the world in importance. Come to our exhibition in 2011 plan to representatives of about 40 countries.

Willingness Ukrainian liftovikov to continue and develop cooperation with Russian organizations elevator confirmed in his speech at the conference, SI Gorishny — head of the Ukrainian Association of the elevator «MK-Lift»:

— We are lacking an active presence on the Ukrainian market of Russian producers, such as Scherbinsky Lift plant, MEL.

He spoke about the status of elevators in Ukraine, said that before the Ukrainian elevator kami are almost the same problems as before the Russian. The commonality of problems suggests systemic deficiencies:

— But progress is, — said S. Gorishny. -Follow Hope that together with the reform of housing and communal services in Ukraine will necessarily state program for the elevators. The main thing for the elevator industry — from elevators to appear master. Then it will be clear with whom to talk and how to build their policies.

The conference featured many other urgent and pressing topics of concern to the elevator Cove. In particular, questions were raised concerning the development of a system of tariffs, pricing and the estimated valuation of the system in the elevator industry; relationship problems with the elevator companies management companies and homeowners; it was about modern approaches to vocational education in the context of self-regulation.

The conference allowed to clearly define the direction of the National Union of lift self-regulatory organizations in the short term and in the more distant future. For efficient recovery of elevator fleet of the country need to debug a system of sequential replacement of obsolete elevator equipment, to create an effective scheme of financing the process. Taking into account the comments made at the conference and wishes need to modify the technical regulations and uphold the requirements of the Russian community in the elevator on the draft technical regulations for elevators, which is conducted in the framework of EurAsEC. Among the priorities — the further development of self-regulation.

These tasks must provide in 2011 to improve the quality of products and services, hence the competitiveness of the elevator complex in Russia, so necessary in the light of our country’s accession to the WTO.

At the end of the conference to leaders of the elevator industry were awarded.

Summarizing the event, the president of the National Union of Self-Regulatory Organizations elevator MA Waxman said:

— I am sure that the next conference of participants lift self-regulatory organizations will be much higher, since it is already clear how effective cooperation on the basis of self-regulation.

Now our challenge — to create a regulatory framework documents. I am sure that soon we will finish the job and successfully move on. Thank you for your hard work.
