Since February 2013 Trips has cleared an important hurdle for the entrance into the Russian markets. With awarding the GOST certificate the system integrator is now qualified to export his low voltage switchgears into the Russian Federation.

The quality standards and guidelines valid for the GOST certificate are comparable with those of the ISO certificate but Russia doesn’t acknowledge this standard. So for accessing the Russian markets suppliers have to review and prove the conformance of their products with Russian standards and regulations.

In the past Trips switchgears have been increasingly requested by Russian customers. For that reason Trips has passed the certification procedure and is now allowed to label his products accordingly. In the Russian domestic market the GOST certificate is held in high esteem. It is noticed by end customers as an expression of high quality. Trips expects from this local hallmark perceptible positive turnover effects for this important growth market.
