Biopshere Flux has obtained the GOST certification
The word GOST (Russian: ГОСТ) is an acronym for gosudarstvennyy standart (Russian: государственнный стандарт), which means state standard.
GOST standards were originally developed by the government of the Soviet Union as part of its national standardization strategy.
The history of national standards began in 1925, when the USSR created a government agency responsible for drafting, updating, publishing and disseminating standards.
All types of regulated standards are included in GOST. From the rules for documentation and design for example if it is a luminaire, to recipes and nutritional data of foods and brand names.
Biosphere Flux is GOST certified for passenger transport lighting. This certification allows us to install our lights in train cars that travel to the furthest points of the continent. Our luminaires have passed several tests to confirm their quality and toughness overcoming the extreme climatic conditions of Russia - the lights have been tested in temperatures of -50º.
