History and main definitions

Mandatory certification of products in Belarus has been imposed by the Directive of Cabinet of Ministers No. 635, issued on September 22, 1993.
 
In order to make the country more attractive to investors, to give the details about the given area and the application of this law, to harmonize the system of verification of compliance with international rules as well as to align with other legislative acts of the Republic of Belarus, the new wording of law No. 269-3 issued on January 05, 2004 entered into force on July 14, 2011 by the law of the Republic of Belarus No. 228-3 issued on December 31, 2010 about amendments to some laws related to the verification of compliance with regulatory requirementsin the field of technical standards and standardization.
 
As an assurance of imported products quality, Belarusian buyers require to sellers the mandatory provision of the certificate GOST B. Besides, the terms of payment are often rigidly linked to the presentation of the certificate GOST B, without preliminary check if the product is subject to compulsory certification in Belarus.In case if obtaining certification is not authorized by the Belarusian legislation, the absence of the certificate GOST B could cause unexpected changes of trade schedule.
 
To overcome these inappropriate effects, official notification from approved experts can be obtained before the export. This notice is materialized in exemption letter.
 
Thus the exemption letter is an official document which states that the product is not subject to mandatory certification in Belarus.
