GOST R certification
Certificate of Conformity in GOST R system affirms that the goods delivered in Russia, and/or production line where they were manufactured, conform to the Russian Safety Standards.
There are similar, but independent regulations in each CIS country. Please note GOST-R is valid only for Russian Federation and will not be accepted in CIS countries.
Depend on the customer needs GOST R certificates could be:
1. For a single shipment. Used in a case of a one time shipment. Usually could be cheaper then serial production certificate.
2. For a serial production. The valid period of such GOST-R certificate could be from 1 up to 3 years. In some cases the factory audit is needed. This type of the certificate could be issued if the manufacturer is going to export their product for a long period of time.
Depending on the product, the GOST R certificate may require prior fire safety certification, or Government Registration.
There are two kinds of Conformity Certificate:
• the obligatory Conformity Certificate - on production which is subject to obligatory certification;
• the voluntary Certificate of Conformity - on production which is subject to voluntary certification - all other production which was not included into Lists of production which is subject to obligatory certification.
