Procedure for Mandatory Certification of Products

This efficient process is carried out according to standard unified schemes. Choice of a certain scheme depends on a type of products, a kind of consignment and some other specific factors. Obligatory certification is carried out as follows:


First, an applicant should file to a certification body a corresponding application for execution of the Certificate, drawn up in compliance with requirements of the current law.


The application should be supported by a set of documents for a particular product to be verified for quality.


Then, a number of laboratory tests and researches should be carried out in an accredited laboratory.


Based upon the results of test reports, product identification protocols, and a survey of the establishment, the corresponding establishment survey report should be drawn up.


Then, an expert of the certification body should consider the documents submitted to make a decision on issue of the Certificate to the applicant.

All the products that have undergone the procedure for compliance with the government regulations and standards are marked with a special Conformity Mark in accordance with GOST R 50460-92. Therewith, the numbers and letterings underneath the sign denote the number of the certification authority.

Upon completion of the procedure, the manufacturer and/or the importer shall apply the Conformity Mark of the National Certification System of the Russian Federation on the packaging, label or housing of the product. Therewith, this requirement should be observed not only for obligatory but also for voluntary certification.

Certification primarily implies that experts of the relevant bodies have verified the product quality, and this is quite a significant factor in promoting this product at the market. The Certificate improves confidence of consumers with the brand seller or manufacturer. That is why obtaining of the Certificate is not just an objective necessity. After all, in this abundance of harmful and counterfeit products, and incompetent provision of service, contemporary consumers are certain to choose a certified product or service. Thus, certification is not just an obligation, but also a great marketing direction.

  • Company details;
  • PSRN;
  • Company’s Charter;
  • Technical specifications (if the products are not produced according to GOST);
