A report is devoted to new Russian National standards GOST R 53630-2006 “Steel welded vessels and apparatus. General specifications” and GOST R 52857.1-2007÷GOST R 52857.12-2007 “Vessels and apparatus. Norms and methods of strength calculation”, which were published in 2007–2008. They changed 33 regulations, which were in force earlier. This report contains general description of recently developed standards, considers its structure, approaches and methods of calculation and design, main distinctions with previous normative documents. It is significant, that developed standards meet the requirement of the standard ISO 16528-1 “Boilers and pressure vessels. Part 1: Performance requirements”. The author compares new Russian standards with ASME Boiler and pressure vessel code. Section VIII, Division 1 and 2, EN 13445 “Unfired pressure vessel” and other well-known international standards. There is also a description of the software, designed in accordance with new Russian standards. Further development of normative methods of calculation and design, including those, that based on computational modeling of constructions, are discussed in the final part of the report.
