Practically all goods exported to Russia are subject to some form of GOST certification. GOST-R is a system of Russian national technical and quality standards that encompass most industries and product groups. As in any other country, certification is required to protect health and safety of Russia's population by excluding potentially hazardous or unsafe products from entering the Russia's commercial space. A proper GOST-R Certificate of Conformity is required for customs clearance, distribution and sales in Russia and often is requested at the time of shipment. More>
Certificate of Conformity TR
On September 15, 2009 a new set of technical regulations, governing the production and operation of heavy machinery and industrial objects, has been decreed by the Federal Government of Russian Federation in the effort to modernize and simplify the GOST system. The new law has been enacted on September 15, 2010, affecting the certification principles and requirements within the GOST-R certification System. As a result, a new type of certificate has been introduced – Certificate of Conformity TR (TR stands for "Technical Regulation"), replacing the GOST-R Certificate of Conformity for certain types of products. The new certificate is now required for products described as "heavy machinery and industrial equipment." A more detailed and complete list of products requiring Certificate of Conformity TR can be found here. More>
RTN Permit to Use
RTN (RosTechNadzor) Permit to Use is required for on-site commissioning and operation of certain types of technical devices that fall in the category of heavy machinery and industrial equipment. The Permit is issued by the Federal Service for Ecological, Technological and Nuclear Supervision of Russian Federation for the period of five years. The Permit may be issued for individual components as well as for the entire setup when its component parts perform interrelated and enabling functions. Commissioning and operation of heavy machinery, equipment and technical devices at industrial sites without a valid RTN Permit is strictly prohibited. More>
Certificate of Type Approval of Measuring Devices (a.k.a. Metrology Certificate ) is a document issued by the Federal Agency for Technical Regulation and Metrology of Russian Federation. It certifies that the given measuring device and the type of measurement it performs are approved for use in the Russian Federation. The Certificate must contain the reference number used to identify the approved measuring instrument in the State Register of Approved Measuring Instruments.
Please note: the measuring device you are seeking the certification for might already be certified and approved for the use in Russian Federation. Please check the State Register to verify whether your product has not been registered and approved for use. More>
Declaration of Conformity is a document used by the manufacturer or supplier of products to confirm products' safety. It is required at the point of entry to Russia for customs clearance as well as onsite at distribution centers or retail locations. Declarations are used in place of the Hygienic Certificates, formerly required for personal hygiene, perfume and alcohol & spirits products. All Declarations are mandatory, i.e. there are no voluntary Declarations of Conformity.
Unlike the Certificate of Conformity (GOST-R or TR), which is issued by the federal Agency, Declaration of Conformity is issued by the manufacturer. They are not printed on a Federal lettered and do not bear the GOST seal. However, all Declarations must be registered by an accredited Russian certification body. More>

Those products that were subjects to Hygienic Certifications now require State Registrations by RosPotrebNadzor – Federal Service on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing. More>
