Russian State Permits and Aprrovals

Permits and Approvals

In addition to proper certificates of conformity that attest to product's conformity to the state quality and safety standards, equipment manufacturers and product distributors are often required to provide industry-specific permits and approvals. Permits and approvals are required to demonstrate product's conformity with the industry-specific requirements on operational and environmental safety. Permits and approvals are required for on-site commissioning, operation, and inspection. Typically, it is the supplier's responsibility to identify the correct type of permit or approval for his products and provide them to the end-user.
