Participation in international committees and organisations

The scientific cooperation between the BASt and state institutions as well as commercial enterprises in Russia will be frozen with immediate effect until further notice. Research funds and the results of our research and development projects will no longer benefit Russia until further notice. There will be no joint scientific and research policy events and no exchange of scientists until further notice. New cooperation projects between the BASt and state institutions as well as commercial enterprises in Russia will not be initiated at present.

We regret this step very much, but in view of Russia's aggressive bellicose approach towards Ukraine, we see no other choice. We stand for diverse international cooperation on the basis of peaceful coexistence of all nations and people. Unfortunately, Russia's bellicose actions towards Ukraine mean that this basis for cooperation is no longer given.

Employees at BASt are represented on some 200 committees in over 30 international organisations across all specialist disciplines of BASt. Most of the committees and those that are the largest are concerned with standardisation. Over half of all committee members work in this area.
