Development of National Standardisation in the Electricity and Gas Sectors: Moldova

Publication date: 2016

With the signature of the Association Agreement (AA) between Moldova and the European Union in June 2014, the introduction of the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement (DCFTA), and the obligations the country has to meet vis-à-vis the Energy Community Treaty (ECT), it will be required for Moldova to adopt and implement a large amount of gas and electricity European and international standards as part of the Energy acquis communautaire. In order to be able to do so, and thus fulfil its obligations under the AA and ECT, Moldova will have to strengthen its National Standards Body (NSB).This assignment, requested by the National Institute for Standardisation, helped to ensure that the organisation understands the benefits of establishing a TC and lessons learned from EU and other INOGATE PCs. It also showcased different ways of managing TCs and introduced the skills and tools to prepare standardization work plans and review all standards which need to be adopted and implemented by the Government of Moldova. The assignment aimed at supporting the development of a Technical Committee on Standardisation in Moldova.
