GOST standards are regional standards administered by the Euro-Asian
Council for Standardization, Metrology and Certification (EASC).
The collection of GOST standards includes over 20,000 titles used
extensively in conformity assessment activities in 12 countries. Serving as
the regulatory basis for government and private-sector certification
programs throughout the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), the GOST
standards cover energy, oil and gas, environmental protection,
construction, transportation, telecommunications, mining, food processing,
and other industries.
The following countries have adopted GOST standards in addition to their
own, nationally developed standards: Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova,
Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan,
Georgia, and Turkmenistan.
