UkrSEPRO is an Ukrainian certification system of quality. It has the same power for domestic Ukrainian market as the ISO 9000 certification for foreign companies in spite that this is absolutely self-standing document. Both foreign and Ukrainian companies who want to trade on Ukraine should possess UkrSePRO.
There are two types of UkrSEPRO Certificates: voluntary and mandatory.There is an order, which regulates obligingness or optionality of conformity certificate obtaining on a particular product. If on the basis of this order product is subject to certification, it must be obtained on an obligatory basis. The ground for issuance of conformity certificate is a test report on product, which is made by accredited laboratories.
If product is not subject to obligatory certification in Ukraine, then (on a voluntary basis, for the purpose to increase competitiveness) may be issued a voluntary certificate. Another feature of conformity certificate is that, not always it is necessary to perform product testing for their issuance. And namely this point regulated by schemes of product certification.
Basically, almost all consumer goods require the mandatory certification. It includes all groceries, products for children, perfume and cosmetics, tableware and kitchenware, packaging materials, household and industrial equipment, etc.
UkrSEPRO certificates can be obtained to be valid for single delivery, 1, 2 or 5 years.
