Important changes to Russia Certification Systems

Over the past two years there have been a number of changes in the Russia Certification Systems. The purpose of this communication is to keep you informed of planned changes in the Russia Technical Regulations (TR) system for electrical products which will take effect from 30 December 2010.

We would like to remind you that, according to this new TR, applicants can choose between the following options:

  • 1. Apply for a Russia Conformity Assessment (CoC) in the form of a certificate (similar to the current system): note that the new GOST Certificate is valid for 5 years (currently 3 years).
  • 2. Arrange for a Declaration of Conformity (DoC) basing on the risk group in which your product belongs.

To register for a DoC, you need to submit your own test report and/or Russia Test Reports issued by an accredited test lab and/or a Russia ISO 9001 certificate. The validity of a DoC varies from 6 months to 1 year (max.).

Please note that a DoC can only be issued to your Russia representative.

Use the table in the attached PDF file to identify which risk group your product belongs to and the impact this has on the validity of the DoC.
