Subject: Exchange Program on Electrical Industry Standards Dear Dr. Boitsov: As part of the program on exchange of standards decided upon at our meeting with 'your associates in Moscow in June, it was decided that an effort be made to arrange for discussion of exchanges in this area between members of the USSR and USA delegations to the IEC meeting in Bucharest in September 1974. I am enclosing a report covering the results of such discussions in Bucharest prepared by Dr. Leon Podolsky, Chairman of the U.S. delegation and President of the United States National Committee of the International Electrotechnical Commission. When the documents referred to in the second last paragraph of the report of the U.S. delegation have been received, we shall arrange through appropriate channels to send them to you for relaying to Mr. I. I. Sulzhenko. Sincerely, x,55 ?5). Aft,tLL F.

L. LaQue, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Product Standards, to Dr. Leon Podolsky, President of the U.S. National Committee of the IEC, a meeting was arranged on September 12, 1974, in Bucharest, Roumania, during the period of the annual general meeting of the IEC, to discuss exchange of information on standards. The attendees of this meeting, held at the Intercontinental Hotel, were: *. Dr. L. Podolsky - President, U.S. National Committee of the IEC.. (Consulting Engineer) Mr, M. G. Domsitz - Vice President, USNC/IEC (Nat. Bur. Stds,) Mr. S. Sherr - Member USNC/IEC (Director of Standards IEEE) USSR Mrs. A. A. Vinogradova - USSR State Committee for Standards Mr. I. I. Sulzhenko Mr, G. 6. Nemtsev Mr. A. U. Golunov Mr. N. G. Kuleshov Deputy Chief, Dept. of Foreign Relations,: USSR State Committee for Standards Chief,of Electrotechnical Dept. USSR State Comm. for Standards - Senior Expert, Electrotechnical Dept. USSR State Comm. for Standards - Engineer, USSR State Committee for Sciences and Technology The USSR delegation from Moscow presented at once the list of USSR standards, given in Appendix I hereto, which all pertain to electrical power distribution and generation equipment and devices and to electric we?dirQ equipment, They were not prepared, or interested, in any other subjects. It appeared from discussion that in March and April, 1974, a USSR delegation had been in the U.S. to discuss the'subject of trade between the U.S. and USSR on these electrical equipment items. The attendees at this meeting were not able to identify the persons in the U.S. to whom their mission talked, but promised to send a copy of their delegates' report to us for further identification. The USSR delegates were of the impression that the U.S. Government could direct U.S. companies making the items covered by standards on their list to give them internal specifications, access to their manufacturing plants, and to their test laboratories. We pointed out that our govern- ment could not force private companies to divulge proprietary information, Approved For Release 2000/09/06 : CIA-RDP79-00798A000600060004-2 Approved For Remise 2000/ 9/06: CIA-RDP7?-0048A0006~000~60004-2 Practically all the items of standards on the ist o Appen ix are- covered by published standards, readily available, of such organizations as I1LEE, ANSI, NEMA, and EEI. The U.S. delegation made clear that it was acting in an advisory capacity, only,, to the Office of Product Standards of the Commerce Department. We agreed to recommend to the Commerce Department that the following infor- mation be supplied to them: 1. A list of U.S, standards (of the organizations listed above) corresponding to the items in Appendix I, insofar as possible. 2. Catalogues of NEMA, IEEE, EIA, AHAM, and ANSI standards. 3. A copy of the U.S. National Electric Code. I 4. A copy of the National Electric Safety Code. 5. A list of major U.S. companies making, and interested in supplying, the items covered by the standards in Appendix I. All of the above information should be sent to Mr. I. I. Sulzhenko, at the Foreign Relations Department, State Committee for Standards, Council of Ministers of the USSR, 9 Leninsky Pr., M 49, Moscow.
