Under Technical Regulation of the Customs Union, the producer now needs one official importer to obtain the necessary permits and certificates.
The certificates will be issued in the name of that Russian legal entity for the period of the GOST certificate’s validity (1-5 years).
If you do not have one fully trusted partner in Russia, or you do not want to emphasize one of your local distributors over others,


GOST-R (GOST-TR) Certification

In accordance with current laws and regulations, most products or services exported to the newly formed Customs Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan are subject to mandatory GOST-TR (former GOST-R) certification

Many products not subject to GOST-R certification still require another form of mandatory certification: Declaration of Conformity.

Products exempt from mandatory certification still may, and quite often are, submitted for Voluntary Certification. A Voluntary Certificate of GOST_R Conformity is processed exactly as the mandatory one, and is very helpful for the marketing of the product.

There are several certification formats, or “schemes”. Typically, a GOST certificate is issued either for one shipment, or for unlimited shipment throughout a period of 1 to 5 years, or for one unit.

Certification procedures differ depending on the particular Technical Regulation covering the product in question.
A Certificate of Conformity, or GOST-R certificate, includes:

  • Name, address, tax and bank information of the Russian Applicant (Exporter’s representative, agent)
  • Name and address of the Exporter (foreign manufacturer)
  • Name and address of the Authority issuing the Certificate
  • Information on the product allowing to categorize it
  • Technical Regulations the conformity to which was established by the Certificate
  • Information about the tests and research carried out in the course of certification
  • List of documents included in the application as proof of the product’s conformity to Technical Regulations
  • Period of validity of the Certificate within the span allowed by the Regulations

Any and all of the above certification options can be implemented ONLY by Exporter’s local official representative or agent.

We are prepared to organize fast and economical certification through the major Russian certification authorities we know, or submit the application to any certification organization as directed by the Exporter. For more specific certification or state registration information click here.
