Certificate of Conformity
Certificate for product and services affirms that the product or services comply with requirements of technical regulations, various standards (GOST R, construction rules and regulations) and other regulatory documents.
Certificate in GOST R System can be collected not only as a certificate of conformity assessment of product quality on obligatory basis, but on voluntary basis. The advantage of Voluntary Certification is that applicant can choose any points of product for assessment.
• Obligatory certificate does not include all necessary points of products that confirm their safety and promote more specific attractive features for customer according to applicant opinion;
• Certification as a certificate of conformity assessment of product quality to Russian standards, is not provided for this product/or services by legislation, and Certificate is necessary for successful product promotion (market development, market demand, competitiveness increase);
• Documentary certificate of conformity assessment of product quality in GOST R System is private, but can be obligatory in some situation (State order, tender, long-term credit, investment project). Certificate can be collected in the other systems (Technical regulation, ISO).
Certificate can be collected voluntarily by producer and supplier. This process is almost identical to each other and documents differ only in color: mandatory certificate is yellow and voluntary one is blue. Voluntary certificate has same legal force like mandatory certificate. Both mandatory certificate and voluntary certificate can be collected on basis of test protocol. Any certificate is provided by accredited Certificate Authorities which are responsible for information of certificates (certificate of conformity assessment of product quality is more convincing than Declaration, because an applicant is responsible for Declaration information).
