About the event

The VII International Forum "Transport Security" is over

In St. Petersburg the VII International Forum "Transport Security", brought together more than 500 Russian and foreign participants, was completed. The work of the Forum was supervised by the Chairman of the Public Council of the Forum Organizer, ANO Public Forum "Transport Security", Deputy Chairman of the Committee for Security and Combating Corruption of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation Anatolii Vyborny. The Forum has been marked by the tragedy in the Petersburg metro on April 3, 2017. The speakers expressed their condolences to the families and friends of the victims, and the Forum began with a minute of silence. The terrorist act demonstrated again that the transport security is one of the most important conditions for the full-fledged functioning and development of the Country, - Anatolii Vyborny emphasized, opening the event.

The participants agreed that although some aspects of the specific legislation require further development, in general, the security situation in the transport sector of the Russian Federation is satisfactory, and safety performance is higher than the global average. Representatives of the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation and Federal Service for Supervision of Transport warned against "excesses" in connection with the St. Petersburg tragedy, recalling that the regulatory and legal framework for ensuring transport security, in general, is formed. The main challenge is to ensure the highest possible quality of all requirements. Ministries and departments will work on improving the standards, adapting them to the changing situation, and eliminating redundant and duplicating requirements. The bill on introducing changes to FZ-16 "On Transport Security", prepared by the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation, was actively discussed at the Forum. According to Nikolai Zakhriapin, Deputy Minister of Transport of the Russian Federation, the draft law proposes a number of changes in the categorization and vulnerability assessment of the transport security facilities, additional empowerment of transport security units, as well as the extension of the law requirements to foreign carriers. According to the representatives of the relevant Duma committees, the draft law should be adopted at the current spring session of the Duma.

The forum participants paid special attention to the need to find a balance between the requirements of transport security and the profitability of the work of the subjects of industry.The Head of Rostransnadzor Viktor Basargin stressed that the agency is trying to reduce the number of inspections, subjecting to special control only those enterprises that had violations in the past. Also the problem of certification of transport security equipment, which is connected with the Government Decision of the Russian Federation No.969, which came into force on April 1, 2017, was discussed at the Forum. The certification process today has not been fully documented, which threatens to turn into serious problems in the operation of airports and railway stations. They will not be able to install the necessary inspection equipment, since they will not have time to pass certification according to the new requirements. The Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation noted that they are ready to consider postponing the deadline for the end of certification for 2018.

Particular attention of the participants was attracted by the topic of preparation of the transport industry for international sports competitions that our country is preparing to host - the Confederations Cup 2017 and the World Cup 2018. The conducted inspections revealed shortcomings in the security system at the transport infrastructure facilities, and now the subjects are eliminating them, and also work out all possible extra-ordinary situations during the special tactical exercises. The international part of the agenda was introduces by the issues of harmonization of national transport legislation in the EEU and CIS area. Participants noted that it is necessary to develop a single conceptual instrument, a common strategy and mechanism for harmonizing transport security systems in the countries included in these alliances.
