The Certification of Conformity GOST R (mandatory)

Conformity assessment procedure

Mandatory certification of conformity

According to “Regulations for product certification” issued by Rosstandart for each product type, certificates are issued according to established certification programs.

These programs may include one or more of the following stages:

  • survey of administrative and technical documents

  • validation of specifications

  • testing the products

  • on-site inspections at the point of production

  • providing additional and preliminary certificates and/or registrations

  • translation in Russian language

  • development of labels for the Russian market

  • revising products  /related documents and bringing them into compliance with imposed requirements

Voluntary certification of conformity:

Even if some products / devices are not subject to mandatory certification GOST R, international manufacturers sometimes wish to obtain evidence of product compliance with Russian local standards. (For instance, to respond to an invitation for proposal). In that case, the procedure of voluntary certification can be applied.

Whether it comes to mandatory or voluntary certification, diverse certification schemes provide for procedures adapted to export conditions and to internal policy of exporter.

Certification by "certified copy" includes transactions within the framework of a fixed delivery contract or transactions involving products that can be easily identified (for example, by serial numbers of equipment).

The ongoing activity of export companies in Russia gave reasons for introducing certification program for a range of mass produced homogeneous products. Validity periods of serial production certificates may be up to 3 years, depending on continuity of production.
