DEVELOPING STANDARDS

Specialists of the standardization department at the All-Union Research and Development Center for Transport Technology help to design interstate and national standards for freight rolling stock, taking account of the current level of development of railcar construction and relevant spheres of science and technology.

 

The Center has designed the following standards:

 

  • PNST 357-2019 Braking system of freight cars bogie. Technical requirements and test methods (authorized on 01.01.2020 by Order No. 26-pnst of the Federal Agency for Technical Regulation and Metrology, dated July 25, 2019)
