Annex 2


Requirements for the evaluation of production.


The decision of an accredited certification body is the ground for the
evaluation of production. An accredited certification body may request evaluation of production to an organization with a staff consisting of assessors for
certification of these products or assessors for certification of production and for quality systems of production. In this case a written reasonable request of an
accredited certification body is issued.
 1. Evaluation of production includes:
 1.1. Review of documentation submitted by the applicant organization accompanying the application for conformity assessment of products.
The applicant provides necessary documents on demand of the certification
 body:
  - Design documentation;
  - Technical documentation;
  - Test and measurement methods;
  - Enterprise standards and instructions covering the manufacturing process and quality control of products;
  - Registration documents and records (logs and folders with reports, acts, certificates and other documents which are filled out during the manufacture and control of quality and product safety).
 2. control over ensuring safety and quality of the equipment includes checking of:
 - organizational structure, the limits of competence and powers of management personnel regarding quality ensurance of the equipment;  - incoming inspection procedures, as well as control and product acceptance;  - incoming inspection of materials and components which limit safety and quality of products in general;
 - technological process, methods, control technologies quality assurance, as well as other systematic measures;
 - technologies used for permanent connection of elements;
 - recordong data on quality and safety of the equipment;
 - statistics of equipment failures;
 - performing corrective procedures;
 - access to the equipment to check compliance of the products with this technical regulation;
 - documentation on the management of nonconforming products;  - acceptance of the quality of permanent connection of details:  1) Acceptance control of the equipment.
The equipment shall be subject to final control at which compliance with the requirements of this technical regulation must be established by means of visual inspection and relevant paper work. In this regard tests which were carried out during manufacture may be taken into consideration. Acceptance control must be conducted internally and externally on every piece of equipment, if needed during manufacture (for example, if visual inspection is not possiblethe during acceptance control).
 2) Pressure test. Acceptance of the equipment must include a strength test for pressure which is usually conducted in the form of hydraulic pressure tests, at which the pressure must correspond to the specified value.
For serial equipment of category I this test can be conducted on statistical basis.
In cases where the hydraulic pressure test is a threat or can not be performed, there may be conducted other tests which are considered equivalent. For nonhydraulic tests additional measures must be applied such as non-destructive tests or other equivalent methods.
 3) Inspection of safety devices.
For units and assemblies final acceptance must also include checking of safety devices the purpose of which is to verify full compliance with this technical regulation.
 - inspection and tests which are held before, during and after the manufacture;  - documentation ensuring quality and safety, such as test and inspection reports, data on verification and calibration, performance appraisal or admission reports for the staff engaged in this sphere, in particular for personnel responsible for permanent connections;
 - means with the help of which the required quality and effective application of quality assurance and safety system can be constantly monitored.  3. Test procedure.
At least one member of the inspection group must have the knowledge and experience in assessing the appropriate equipment. The decision on the results must be communicated to the manufacturer. Notification on this must include the inspection findings and reasons for the decision taken. An appeal procedure must be envisaged. The manufacturer must provide access for the inspection group to production, acceptance, testing and storage departments of high pressure equipment, and provide all necessary information, including:  - the category of equipment;
 - the results of previous inspection visits;
 - required follow-ups of corrective actions;
 - quality assurance reports and records such as inspection records, test data, information on verification and calibration, performance appraisal reports of staff involved, checklists, etc.;
 - significant changes in organization of production or methods of quality and safety assurance.

2. Painting of tank cars for transporting liquefied petroleum gases

The outer surface of tank cars for transporting liquefied petroleum gases is painted light gray. Both sides of the vessel are affixed with a distinctive red stripe with a minimum width of 200 mm with an inscription in black on it, "Propane - Flammable." At the rear end of the vessel the inscription in black "flammable" is applied.
