History and main definitions

For the first time the Declaration of Conformity GOST R was mentioned in the Decree issued by the Government of the Russian Federation N°766 on July 07, 1999. Later, shortly after the promulgation of the Federal Law N° 184-FZ issued on December 27, 2002 about « Technical regulations» the Rostekhregulation (currently Rosstandart) released a new list of products subject to mandatory compliance test. This list has differentiated products whose conformity must be certified through the Certification and the Declaration.

The Declaration of Conformity GOST R must be registered in the Certification Center accredited in the system GOST R according to the evidence of compliance given by the applicant. Obtaining the Declaration of Conformity is allowed only to legal entities registered in the Russian territory (distributors, importers or official representatives of foreign manufacturers). Furthermore, each importer must have his own Declaration of Conformity issued in his name.
