GOST Certificate is the oldest conformity certificate in Russia and the countries of the Customs Union. The national quality system is marked with a symbol. GOST R is gradually being replaced by the TR CU certification system with several exceptions and soon will be completely withdrawn.
Some products in Russia still should be covered by GOST R certificates. There are two official documents which confirm compliance of the products in GOST R system:
1.Certificate of Conformity GOST R: MANDATORY\VOLUNTARY CERTIFICATE.
2.Declaration of Conformity GOST R.
Mandatory certificate of conformity confirms the quality of the goods. It can be issued for a batch of goods or for serial production. Voluntary certificate is a marketing tool. Although in accordance with the law, the product is not subject to labeling, the GOST approval mark inspires confidence among buyers.
Declaration of Conformity GOST R is issued only for the products which require certification. It is issued for a particular list of the goods, such as polyethylene pipes, steel ropes, high voltage equipment, medical equipment, household chemicals.
