3 RusChlor Projects 2011 – 2013formulation of the Russian proposals for the Minamata Convention text;formulation of the National Development Strategy for the Chlor-alkali Industry for the period from the year 2014 through 2030;membership in World Chlorine Council (WCC);participation in formulation of the WCC documents on the industrial safety;participation in development by the government of the Russian Federation of the new Federal Laws and Rules on the Industrial Safety.

5 The key-tasks stemming from the current situation of the chlor-alkali industry MODERNIZATION OF THE INDUSTRY SECTOR, WHICH INCLUDES MODERNIZATION OF THE BASIC EQUIPMENT AT THE FACILITIES OPERATING THE DIAPHRAGM AND MERCURY-CATHODE ELECTROLYSIS.PUTTING INTO COMMERCIAL OPERATION OF ONLY SUCH NEW PRODUCTION FACILITIES THAT ONLY OPERATE THE MEMBRANE ELECTROLYSIS.IMPROVEMENT IN THE ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS:REDUCTION IN THE MERСURY EMISSION;REDUCTION IN THE USE OF ASBESTOS;REDUCTION IN THE GREENHOUSE GASES EMISSION AS A RESULT FROM THE REDUCED ENERGY CONSUMPTION.GRADUAL BOTH ECONOMICALLY AND ECOLOGICALLY FEASIBLE CONVERSION OF THE STILL FUNCTIONING PRODUCTION FACILITIES OF THOSE THAT ARE STILL OPERATING THE MERCURY CATHODE ELECTROLYSIS OR THE DIAPHRAGM ONE OR BOTH INTO THE MEMBRANE ELECTROLYSIS TECHNOLOGY.5
6 RusChlor Suggestions Accepted by Federal Acts of the Russian Federation Federal Law “On Industrial Safety of Hazardous Production Facilities” (came into the legal force on March 04, 2013);National Standards “Safety Rules for Production of Chlorine and Chlorine-containing Substances” (approved by Federal Service for Ecological, Technological, and Nuclear Supervision and duly registered by the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation on December 30, 2013);National Standards “Safety Rules for the Chemically Hazardous Production Facility” (approved by Federal Service for Ecological, Technological, and Nuclear Supervision and duly registered by the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation on December 30, 2013).

8 Commissioning and admission to service at the Hazardous Industrial Facility Confirmation of conformity of the device with the requirements of the Technical RegulationOnly such a legal entity or self-employed entrepreneur that falls into either of the following two categories and is duly registered as a resident legal person for the Custom Union's territory can lawfully apply for the certificate:• Manufacturer or contractor fulfilling the manufacturer's obligations;• Supplier (under a certain schema).Set of documentation:• Safety Assessment Report;• Operational Requirements Documents;• The Contract (Delivery Contract) or consignment details for either a consignment or one-off item;• Management System Certificate;• Report on the Studies Undertaken;• Test reports;• Conformity Certificates for the Materials and Parts;Performance of the Expert Examination as to the Industrial Safety of the device or installation• prior to the beginning of its operational use at the hazardous production facility;• at the end of its operational lifetime as determined by the legislation or manufacturer;• in the absence of any exact endurance data in the technical documentation linked to the device or installation on the condition that the actual operational life of the device or installation has exceeded 20 years;• upon completion of the works on changing the design, replacement of the construction material for the bearing elements of the device or installation or upon completion of the works on the reconstructive maintenance that have followed such an accident at the hazardous production facility that resulted in a damage caused to the device or installation.
9 Safety Assessment Report Safety Assessment Report is a single document comprising the risk analysis and certain data on the minimum essential safety measures. The data on the safety measures is supposed to have been initially excerpted from the design, operational, and process control documentation. Safety assessment report is required to be accompanying the machinery or equipment at all the stages of its lifecycle so that the risk assessment data calculated in operational stage upon completion of works on capital repair of the machinery or equipment should be added to the report.GOST R “Safety of the Machinery and Equipment. Requirements as to the Safety Analysis Report” No

11 Production of the chlororganic products in the Russian Federation in the 2010–2013 timeframe The organochlorine synthesis industry is clearly underperforming both the qualitatively and quantitatively, which should be mostly accounted for by the poor demand for the products in the market with a possible exception of PVC.Without a considerable economic revival one can hardly expect that the chlororganic products output can rise to any substantial extent in both the short- and mid-term perspective.The rise in the PVC output is hampered by the lack of ethylene in the domestic market.
12 Import content of the Russian domestic PVC market гг.гг.Consumers: construction, housing and public utilities,mechanical engineering,packing and wrapping materials, and some other industries.
13 The demand for PVC has exceeded 1 million tons a year in the Russian Federation The demand for PVC rose by hefty 34 percent in 2010 compared to the same indicator's previous year’s value. The demand curve has been almost flat since then.
