11.10 Environment Protection
During the operation of power plants, measures are taken to prevent or limit the harmful impact on the environment of pollutant emissions into the atmosphere and discharges of pollutants into water bodies, noise, vibration, electric and magnetic fields and other harmful physical impacts, and to reduce irreversible losses and volumes of water consumption.
The amount of pollutant emissions into the atmosphere should not exceed the norms of maximum permissible emissions (limits), discharges of pollutants into water bodies - norms of maximum permissible or temporarily agreed discharges.
The intensity of the electric and magnetic fields should not exceed the maximum permissible levels of these factors, noise impact - norms of the acoustic output of equipment.
Places for installation of WDPP should be selected aside from the places of traditional ways of moving of migrating birds. In order to avoid cases of birds’ death, acoustic beacons should be installed on operated WDPP, which frighten away birds.
The sound level created by a single WDPP at a distance of 50 m from a wind-power unit at a height of 1.5 m from the ground level should not exceed 60 dBA.
In residential and public premises near the WDPP in all cases, the sound level of working WDPP should not exceed 60 dBA, infrasound - 100 dB in accordance with the requirements of SNiP II-12-77.
The requirements for electromagnetic compatibility of electrical equipment that is part of the WDPP shall be established in standards and specifications for specific types of WDPP and comply with the requirements of GOST R 51317.6.1-99 and GOST R 51317.6.3-99.

✓ name of the certified product, which allows it to be identified;
✓ name of the technical regulation, for compliance with the requirements of which certification was carried out;
✓ information about the conducted researches (tests) and measurements;
✓ information on documents submitted by the applicant to the conformity assessment body as evidence of conformity of products to the requirements established by technical regulations;
✓ period of validity of the certificate.
The certificate of conformity is made out on the form78 and is subject to registration in the body that confirms the compliance that issued it.
The certificate of conformity for the serial production is issued for a period established by the scheme of confirmation compliance.
The validity of the certificate of conformity extends throughout the territory of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
It is prohibited to import and sell products subject to mandatory confirmation of compliance that did not pass confirmation of compliance.
76 Certificates of conformity of foreign countries, product test protocols, conformity marks are recognized in accordance with international treaties or concluded agreements with international or regional state and non-governmental organizations for accreditation.
✓ authorized body for standardization, metrology and certification is the Committee for Technical Regulation and Metrology of the Ministry of Investments and Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan (GosStandart)79;
✓ accredited bodies on certification of products, processes, works and services80;
✓ accredited testing laboratories (centers);
✓ accredited conformity assessment bodies (experts - certification auditors).
At present two systems of technical regulation operate simultaneously in the territory of the Republic of Kazakhstan - the state system of technical regulation and the system of technical regulation of the Customs Union. For this reason, there are also two lists of products subject to mandatory certification (conformity assessment):
✓ On the territory of Kazakhstan - the national List of products and services subject to mandatory certification (Decree of the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan dated April 20, 2005 No. 367);
✓ On the territory of the Customs Union - the unified list of products subject to mandatory conformity assessment and the issuance a uniform form documents (Decision of the Commission of the Customs Union dated April 7, 2011 No. 620).
Products subject to the technical regulations of the Customs Union must be accompanied by a Single Certificate of Conformity or a Single Declaration of Conformity with a single sign of circulation of EAC products. Products included in the Unified List may also be accompanied by a Single Certificate of Conformity or a Single Declaration of Conformity (there can be no single sign on these documents).
If the products included in the Unified List are accompanied by a certificate of conformity issued in the national system of technical regulation of Russia and Belarus, then the products must undergo the procedures of confirming compliance under national legislation, and such conformity certificates must be reissued for Kazakhstan-type certificates.
Products not subject to the technical regulations of the Customs Union and not included in the Unified List are subject to mandatory assessment (confirmation) of
regulation of the Republic of Kazakhstan" Forms of certificates of conformity, declarations of compliance and procedure for their completion "
