Previously it was named Gosstandart of Russia. In 2004, Gosstandart of Russia was folded into the Russian Federation Ministry of Industry and Energy and became known as the Federal Agency for Technical Regulation and Metrology, or Rostekhregulirovaniye (Ростехрегулирование). From June 2010 the short name became Rosstandart (Росстандарт). The new name reflects a new role the agency is supposed to play in the Russian government's effort to reduce barriers to trade and get the Russian economy more closely aligned with the global marketplace. Rosstandart recently worked with representatives from the public and private sectors to develop a national standards strategy for the Russian Federation. This document establishes a framework for moving towards the system that is based on voluntary consensus standards. Since the voluntary standards system in Russia is only beginning to emerge, Rosstandart continues its sponsorship and funding of the development of GOST R standards, the national standards of the Russian Federation. Among other responsibilities of the agency are representing the Russian Federation to international and regional standards organizations (such as the ISO, IEC, and EASC) and administering the GOST R certification program for products.

Д.Медведев.Заседание Комиссии по модернизации.20.01.10
 
10:38
Speech at Meeting of Presidential Commission for Modernisation and Technological Development of Russias Economy. January 20, 2010 Lipetsk Заседание Комиссии по модернизации и технологическому развитию, посвящённое проблемам технического регулирования. 20 января 2010 года Липецк PRESIDENT OF RUSSIA DMITRY MEDVEDEV: Today, we are once again addressing a topic common to our meetings: that of technical regulations. I specifically wanted to devote one of the Commissions meetings to this issue. You know how important this topic is to the modernisation of our economy. After all, our technical regulations and standards are key instruments that ensure competitiveness and innovative appeal of our economy. We have discussed this issue many, many times and I had to give some rather harsh instructions which - as is often the case in our country - ultimately yielded certain results. I am referring to the legislation on technical regulations. Unfortunately, the law that was passed at the beginning of this decade, the one that has been in force, proved to be absolutely ineffective and we had to urgently amend it to meet the requirements of today. That has been done and I have signed such amendments into law. I hope that now the amended law will allow all of our colleagues present first and foremost, Cabinet members, the Ministry of Industry and Trade headed by Mr Khristenko, and the corresponding agency [Federal Agency for Technical Regulation and Metrology] to make relevant decisions ensuring their proper quality, quantity and swiftness. This is, perhaps, most important. First, I am hereby instructing the Cabinet to intensify efforts in this area and I would like for them to report back to me on what has been done and the number of documents passed. I would like the report fairly soon lets say, in two months. The second issue on which we need a decision is the overall quantity of technical regulations. The numbers are increasing constantly we already discussed this today with our colleagues. Initially, some 40 to 50 regulations were mentioned, then another higher figure appeared, and finally I was told that altogether about 400 technical regulations are required. Lets determine exactly how many of these regulations we really need. I understand that to the people developing such regulations, this is their business and operation, but for the other business entities these regulations determine their ability to succeed. That is why I would like to see a report on how many technical regulations we actually need to finalise the entire regulation process. We shouldnt get caught up in details as, after all, technical regulations may be offered for any operation or item whatsoever. Instead, integrated regulations should be drafted and approved by the Ministry [of Industry and Trade] and the corresponding Agency [for Technical Regulation and Metrology], just as we had agreed. This is highly important. Third, we must adhere to the same principles being followed today by other countries. We cannot refute the experience accumulated by developed economies in recent decades. As far back as 1985, the European Union implemented the so-called New Approach principles. And since the beginning of this decade, there have been national standardisation strategies introduced in the United States, UK, Germany, and France. We in Russia spent all of those years apart from these international trends, living on some kind of isolated island and never letting anyone near us. We need to analyse the applicability of such standards for us, especially since this was outlined in the Presidential Address [to the Federal Assembly] and in the law amending the current legislation on technical regulations. Business community is genuinely concerned with these processes as its members are involved in manufacturing and selling high-tech products and competing on their markets. Thus, I believe that our responsible business community should participate in developing the corresponding national standards. This is absolutely vital. Businesses expenditures for this work in standardisation could well be classified as goods and services production costs. We should consider such an option and pass respective financial statutes. After all, standardisation should lower costs, which is a direct benefit to our businesses. http://www.kremlin.ru

Metrication in the United States
 
43:57
Metrication is the process of introducing the International System of Units or SI, commonly known as the metric system, to replace the traditional or customary units of measurement of a country or region. Although all U.S. customary units have been redefined in terms of SI units, the United States does not commonly mandate the use of SI. This, according to the CIA Factbook, makes the US one of only three countries (the other two being Myanmar (formerly Burma) and Liberia) that have not adopted the metric system as their official system of weights and measures. However, recent evidence from visitors and trading partners indicates that there is widespread use of the metric system in both Liberia and Myanmar, and in October 2013, a Myanmar government minister announced that his country was preparing to formally adopt the metric system. This leaves the USA as the only country in the world that has not adopted the system. This video is targeted to blind users.

SEC DAO Report on Initial Cryptocurrency Offerings (ICOs)
 
05:21
SEC DAO Report on Initial Cryptocurrency Offerings (ICOs)- Today is the first in a LawCast series talking about the recent SEC investigation and public statements on initial cryto-currency offerings or ICOs. On July 25, 2017, the SEC issued a report on an investigation related to an initial coin offering (ICO) by the DAO and statements by the Divisions of Corporation Finance and Enforcement related to the investigative report. On the same day, the SEC issued an Investor Bulletin related to ICO’s. Offers and sales of digital coins, cryptocurrencies or tokens using distributed ledger technology (DLT) or blockchain have become widely known as ICO’s. In a prior LawCast series, a introduced the topic of DLT, also known as blockchain. The basis of the SEC report is that offers and sales of digital assets, including cryptocurrencies, are subject to the federal (and state) securities laws. From the highest level, the nature of a digital asset must be examined to determine if it meets the definition of a security using established principles and in particular the Howey Test. All offers and sales of securities must either be registered with the SEC or there must be an available exemption from such registration. This statement applies to cryptocurrency securities in the same manner it applies to all other securities. In addition, participants in ICO’s are subject to federal securities laws to the same extent they are in other securities offerings, including broker-dealer registration requirements. Securities exchanges providing for trading must register unless an exemption applies. Despite the SEC findings, it declined to pursue an enforcement action but rather used the opportunity to inform the public on its views and, in particular, that “the federal securities laws apply to those who offer and sell securities in the United States, regardless whether the issuing entity is a traditional company or a decentralized autonomous organization, regardless whether those securities are purchased using U.S. dollars or virtual currencies, and regardless whether they are distributed in certificated form or through distributed ledger technology.” In the press release announcing the investigative findings, SEC Chair Jay Clayton stated, "[T]he SEC is studying the effects of distributed ledger and other innovative technologies and encourages market participants to engage with us. We seek to foster innovative and beneficial ways to raise capital, while ensuring – first and foremost – that investors and our markets are protected." This is not the first time the SEC has addressed registration and exemption requirements associated with cryptocurrencies. There have been several other cases. For example, in December 2014 the SEC settled charges against BTC Virtual Stock Exchange and LTC Global Virtual Stock Exchange related to violations of both the broker-dealer registration requirements and the securities offer and sale registration requirements. This LawCast series will summarize the SEC Report of Investigation, statements by the Divisions of Corporation Finance and Enforcement and the Investor Bulletin on Initial Coin Offerings. #LegalAndComplianceLLC

The Minister of Innovation, Science, and Economic Development is responsible for the National Research Council. The transformation of the NRC into an RTO that focuses on "business-led research" was part of the federal government's Economic Action Plan. On 7 May 2013, the NRC launched its new "business approach" in which it offered four business lines: strategic research and development, technical services, management of science and technology infrastructure and NRC-Industrial Research Assistance Program (IRAP). With these services, NRC intended to shorten the gap between early stage research and development and commercialization. At one point, NRC had over 30 approved programs.The tenure of John McDougall as President of the NRC (2010–2016) was marked by a number of controversies. His presidency was characterised by a dramatic drop in publications and patents, by significant cuts in scientific staff, and by a 23-month period during which NRC management was aware that the organization was contaminating the water table in a small Ontario community but did not inform that community's inhabitants.John McDougall's departure – signalled by a sudden, three-line email to employees in March 2016 announced that he was going on personal leave. During this time Maria Aubrey, Vice President of NRC, filled the role as Acting President. Effective August 24, 2016, Iain Stewart became the new President of the NRC. The details regarding McDougall's personal leave were not publicly disclosed.

Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.

The disputes involve consumers, farmers, biotechnology companies, governmental regulators, non-governmental organizations, and scientists. The key areas of controversy related to genetically modified food (GM food or GMO food) are whether such food should be labeled, the role of government regulators, the objectivity of scientific research and publication, the effect of genetically modified crops on health and the environment, the effect on pesticide resistance, the impact of such crops for farmers, and the role of the crops in feeding the world population. In addition, products derived from GMO organisms play a role in the production of ethanol fuels and pharmaceuticals. Specific concerns include mixing of genetically modified and non-genetically modified products in the food supply, effects of GMOs on the environment, the rigor of the regulatory process, and consolidation of control of the food supply in companies that make and sell GMOs. Advocacy groups such as the Center for Food Safety, Organic Consumers Association, Union of Concerned Scientists, and Greenpeace say risks have not been adequately identified and managed, and they have questioned the objectivity of regulatory authorities. The safety assessment of genetically engineered food products by regulatory bodies starts with an evaluation of whether or not the food is substantially equivalent to non-genetically engineered counterparts that are already deemed fit for human consumption. No reports of ill effects have been documented in the human population from genetically modified food. There is a sc ...
