Declaration of Conformity
In Russia a declaration of Conformity can be collected by corporations and individuals: producers, salespeople and companies which who represent foreign manufacturers.
In accordance with «Federal Law about Technical regulation» 27th of December 2002 г. № 184, art. 24 the declaration can be collected only by Russian producer or importer of product.
Instead of declaration some products require certificate of conformity. A list of such products is in the unified catalog of products which require obligatory certification, confirmed by Government Resolution, the 1st of December 2009, № 982 (done changes, the 15th of February, 2010).
Thus, if it is necessary to find out what requires certificate or declaration registration, it is enough to apply catalog of product. But remember that every year some changes are made in this catalog. The last changes were accepted in March, 2013.
System of certification and declaration has identical legal force. The differences are a document format and responsibilities. Mandatory certificate is yellow and voluntary one is blue. There is not any special document format for declaration. That is why declaration can be filled by the applicant and be assured in the accredited Authorities.
