The certification of production is necessary for confirmation of safety of production. The safety requirements are different for each production and they are expressed in the certain articles of the technical regulations.

Mandatory Certificate of Conformity

Certificate of Conformity is a document which proves conformity of a product to mandatory requirements of regulations and standards of the Russian Federation.

Mandatory Certificate is required for the purpose of selling and using a product in Russia. Availability of certificates for imported goods is also checked by the Federal Customs Service.

 

Certificate of Conformity or Quality Certificate proves that a product conforms to required quality norms; Certificate of Conformity can be obtained, through established certification schemes, for stock-produced articles and job lots. Certificate of Conformity is issued by an accredited certification center and is valid throughout Russian Federation regardless of recipient’s location. This document can be issued on the basis of a supply contract.

Our experts will provide comprehensive information about possible certification schemes applicable in a specific case, so that the applicant could choose an optimal execution option.

Mandatory certification is obligatory for products with established quality requirements, which implies a Certificate of Conformity. You can check whether quality certification is required by means of product nomenclature – either through an Item Name or Federal PCC codes (Product Classification Codes). If a code is included with the list, certification or declaration is mandatory.

Voluntary Certificate of Conformity

 

The GOST R system makes provision for a type of certificate applicable for products and cervices that are not subject to mandatory certification under the Russian law. Such a certification is called voluntary. A voluntary certificate is issued at the request of a product manufacturer or supplier.

This document can be issued on the basis of a supply contract. 

Even when there are no mandatory requirements for quality certification, many companies undertake voluntary certification. Although voluntary certification is effectuated at applicant’s request, the availability of the voluntary certificate is a weighty argument in favour of quality – it is for this very reason that companies undertake voluntary certification of their products. In practical terms, consumers demand a documented proof of quality. It is totally irrelevant, whether such document is voluntary or mandatory, since any quality certificate is a proof of product safety, which is the most important issue for the consumer.
