Other information: The Russian Steel Association was founded in 2001 by Russia's leading iron & steel companies in order to coordinate efforts related to the promotion of the interests of Russian steelmakers and to implement joint non-commercial projects.

Member companies manufacture ~98% of Russia's pig iron; 90% of the country's steel and rolled products; about 60% of steel pipes and tubes; and a significant share of raw materials used in the iron and steel industry. Main member companies include the Evraz Group, Mechel, MMK, NLMK, OEMK, Severstal, TMK, IMH (Industrial Metallurgical Holding) and OMK (the United Metallurgical Company).

The Association includes a Technical Regulation Commission. The main activities of this unit include work to harmonize the Russian system of technical regulation, standardization and conformity with foreign systems in order to remove barriers for Russian products to enter international markets; and development and preparation of proposals for improving Russian legislation in the field of technical regulation, standardization and conformity assessment.
