Certification for Russia
 

Certification for Russia


Practically all goods exported to Russia are subject to some form of mandatory certification requirement, GOST-R being one of them. Since 1993, GOST is the Russian systems of mandatory quality certification for all products produced in and imported to Russia. The purpose of the system is to protect health and safety of Russia's population by excluding potentially hazardous or unsafe products from entering the Russia's commercial space. The registered GOST R sign, a.k.a. Mark of Conformity demonstrates product's compliance with the Russian quality standards. The rules and regulations for product testing and compliance with the GOST requirements are established by the Russian state authorities. The requirements include technical product testing and expert evaluation by independent third party testing facility, accredited by the competent standardizing agency of Russia, the so called Federal Agency for Technical Regulation and Metrology, based in Moscow. A violation of the certification terms is a violation of Russian laws.
 

New regulation:   Following the formation of the Customs Union (CU) that now includes Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan and ratification of the Technical Regulations of the Customs Union (TR CU) for the identified product groups, all previously issued GOST-R and TR Certificates must be replaced by their TR CU equivalents.
Please consult the table below to confirm the validity of your existing Certificate of Conformity.
