In September of 1996 the Certification Body and Testing Center of Building Materials, Structures and Preserva-tion Facilities were accredited. In the course of company's further development we obtained our own office building as well as the production premises. This acquisition took place at the beginning of the year 2003. In August 2003 "MINSK STROIISPYTANIA" testing center was created and accredited in the National System of Russia GOST R (GOSTSTROI of Russia). In May 2004 the Body of certification of operations and services for construction businesses and quality management systems was established and accredited. Thus the area of testing center accreditation was significantly expanded. Since early 2004 we have been working on the creation of the training center for qualification upgrading. First of all, this center will be oriented on the training of spe-cialists in the area of quality control and management. As the standardization system of the Republic of Belarus is in the process of restructuring its activities in compliance with the European regulations, we are finishing the additional certification of the Certification Body and Testing Center in order to bring their services and products in full conformity with the European Union directives and CE marking.
