Federal technical regulation and metrology agency will put into effect new national standard GOST R “National uniform measurement assurance system. Oil and oil products mass. Measuring techniques (methods)” on June 1, 2016. Certification according to new GOST R standard will be voluntary.

New standard will be used by companies who receive or deliver oil and oil products. It includes typical mass measurement techniques and procedures.

The standard was developed by All-Russian research institute for flow metering. Developers intended the GOST R standard to contribute to oil products transportation and assure desired precision of measurement during estimation of examined product mass.
