Certification of fasteners
Fasteners are products for fastening any parts and structures, used in construction, engineering, manufacturing, etc.
Nowadays the certification of fasteners is executed in accordance with the Technical Regulations on safety of the equipment and machinery. Previously, it was held in accordance with GOST R.
The certification system for this type of product in the Russian Federation suggests that the fasteners have a diameter of more than 12 mm in the group OKP 160000 (screws, bolts, screws, studs, nuts, clips, washers, rivets, etc.) and the certification for these types is executed in the form of issuing the declaration of conformity.
However, there are fasteners with an increased level of strength, which are used to secure construction sites that need to be particularly strong, such as tall buildings, bridges, oil and gas industry and the nuclear power industry and others. For such fasteners certification system may provide the registration of the certificate of conformity, because people’s life depends on of the quality of the product. However, for some businesses, such as oil and gas companies operating in the international market, a certificate of conformity may not be enough. In order to increase consumer demand, they make out a certificate of conformity in the systems of ISO 9001-2001 and 9001-2006 STO, as well as compliance with DIN, ISO EN, GOST.
For fasteners, imported into Russia from abroad you have to issue a declaration of conformity.
