According to TASS, the Ministry of Industry and Trade suggested that under sanctions, companies in Russia should be allowed to produce cars with reduced requirements, including environmental requirements, until February 1, 2023.
The Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade has drafted a regulation approving rules for the conformity assessment of wheeled vehicles released during a special period, which will allow the release of vehicles with simplified requirements, including those relating to the environment.
