One of the main components of the customs clearance and logistics management is certification of shipping. The goods imported into the country have to meet customs authorities and pass some necessary procedure for which it is necessary to make a number of documents. The reason is to reduce the maximum number of low-quality goods imported into the country. Any cargo must meet certain quality standards laid down in such certification schemes as ISO 14000, ISO 9000, ISO 22000, OHSAS 18001, HACCP and so on.
For certification and passing of the goods through the customs the following documents may be required:
- certificates for imported products in accordance with GOST Russia,
- Certificate of conformity with technical regulations
- Declaration or certificate of fire safety,
- declaration of conformity,
- Certificate of Origin (general form, A, ST-1, experts’),
- State Registration Certificate,
- import licenses and veterinary certificates,
- Conclusion on ozone depleting substances
- Documents from VNIIS (clarification of the need for certification of goods is mandatory for him to leave the customs territory of the Russian Federation for customs),
- Refusal letter.

We need to take into account that the price of obtaining and processing times of different types of licenses and certificates vary much and depend on a number of nuances, such as the need to make a selection of products, which is subject to certification in advance, the passage of goods through the warehouse for temporary storage, etc.
Certification procedures for goods are quite lengthy. Without prior consultation on the following question: what documents need to be drawn up, taking into account the characteristics of each load, as they have a life of action, etc., it is difficult to ensure the smooth passage of goods through customs.
