Russian Code Compliance & Certification

Background

Certificates are required for the importation of equipment into the territory of the Russian Federation and Customs Union (Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus).

Equipment and works need to be certified as compliant with the following main regulations and standards (note the list is not exhaustive):

  • Federal Law N 184-FL – Technical Regulations
  • Federal Law N 116-FL – Industrial Safety of Hazardous Production Facilities
  • Requirements of Custom Union (CU TR)
  • Russian Technical Regulations (TR Code)
  • National Russian Standards (National System GOST R) for products in respect of which technical regulations have not been developed or have not yet entered into force.

To support Code Compliance Certification Interface with the Technical Authority inside the Russian Federation, CONSUB utilises partners inside the Russian Federation and experienced technical specialists in the UK to manage and provide assistance to the Clients for all necessary activities.

In this way, Clients avoid the language, cultural and administrative issues that would arise if dealing directly with the various Certifying and Technical Authorities.
