The Certificate of Conformity of the Customs Union is a single document document certifying the compliance of certified products with safety requirements defined by the technical regulations of the Customs Union. The certificate of the Customs Union allows duty-free sales of products in the territories of the member countries of the Customs Union (EAEC).
The Customs Union (TC) was created in 2010 from three states – Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan with the goal of creating a free trade area. Since 2015, the CU has been reorganized into the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEC), which includes Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Russia, whose territories constitute a single space for free movement of goods and services.
In connection with the past changes, a transitional period was defined for new certificate forms, therefore, before January 1, 2019, forms of certificates of conformity of the Customs Union are used.
The content of the certification procedure for the technical regulations of the Customs Union depends on the volume of manufactured products (single product, lot, serial production), as well as the validity of the certificate (1 year, 3 years and 5 years). According to these criteria, a certification scheme is chosen, which can include conducting a sample test and (or) analyzing the state of production. You can get acquainted with the full list of certification schemes in the appropriate section of our website.
Organization of work on mandatory certification begins with the filing of an application with the certification body. Together with the application it is necessary to present the corresponding set of documents.
With respect to products manufactured in the territory of the Russian Federation, the necessary documents are:
To implement imported products, the manufacturer must have a resident representative in any country of the Customs Union. In this case, the above list of documents is also required to attach:
After receiving the application and the necessary documents, our experts conduct their analysis, based on the results of which they send the applicant a decision on the application. Simultaneously with the decision, a contract and an account are sent. After bilateral signing of the contract and 100% of the payment of the bill by the applicant, the head of the body forms a verification group. Experts of the verification team go to the applicant for sampling and, if provided for by the certification scheme, to audit production. Selected samples are sent for testing to an accredited IC. At the end of the tests, the IC sends to the authority the protocols of certification tests. If the results are positive and there are no significant discrepancies in the production audit, the head of the body decides on issuing the certificate. Otherwise, the applicant is sent a decision to refuse to issue a certificate of compliance with the reasons for the refusal.
