Policy Win: Transition Period on SI Units Regulation Was Prolonged till 2021

Business community welcomes prolongation of transition period for Order of the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine (the Ministry) #914 which approves SI units and rules for their application. Amendments to the mentioned regulation were introduced by Ministry’s Order #1938 effective from December 28, 2018. Postponement of requirement on mandatory labelling of products in letters of Latin or Greek alphabets for another two years gives an additional time to businesses for adaptation to labelling requirements and settling some other issues of Order #914.

The Chamber has been continuously driving this initiative by arranging a number of meetings with Ministry’s representatives, addressing respective requests to responsible stakeholders as well as taking every opportunity to deliver business position on the issue.  

We would like to thank the Ministry for readiness to hear the voice of business and fruitful cooperation.
