Russia – State Registration
A legal requirement under the Russian public health laws
Russia and its regions offer a lot of opportunities for foreign companies. To access this potential market, foreign companies need to follow certain rules. In some cases, companies must prove that their products are safe for the public health. In accordance with the Agreement of October 6, 2007 on the formation of a common custom territory, a Customs Union has been established, which is composed of Belarus, Kazakhstan and the Russian Federation. The Customs Union Agreement on Sanitary Standards came into force on July 1st, 2010. From that date the Hygienic certificate has been replaced with the State Registration Certificate.
