In accordance with current laws and regulations in the recently formed Eurasian Economic Community (EAC) and Customs Union (CU) of Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia and Kyrgystan and, most products or services exported to those countries are subject to mandatory certification for conformity to Customs Union Technical Regulations (TR CU), instead of the obsolete GOST-R certification). To an exporter, this major regulatory change spells both and good news .
The current certification regulations are rather complex and bureaucratic. Even for local
merchants, obtaining necessary certification or registration in Russia
is not an easy task. Russian certification system takes into account, but does not automatically accept
most non-Russian quality standards and certificates.
Fees for registration and certification in
Russia are comparable
to similar procedures in other countries. Yet, there is
neither published information available nor
a common policy on certification pricing. Depending on the product and complexity of laboratory analysis, the certification costs may range from a few hundred dollars to tens of thousands.
And last but not least, like in EU, EAC now requires a domestic "Agent of Record", who would be accepting claims and complaints.
The good news
is that "Russian Standard, Inc" (Rosstandard) with offices in the USA and Moscow, has been successfully providing Russian certification and registration to exporters for over a decade.
