Russia – GOST R Certificate of Conformity

Getting access for your products on the Russian market

Business Challenge

Russia and its regions offer many big opportunities for foreign companies. To access all this potential, foreign companies need to follow certain rules. Since 1993, the majority of imported products and equipment must be inspected to show that they comply with Russian standards. GOST R certification is one of the most common mandatory certificates. It was introduced to protect the health and safety of Russia’s population. In this complex and constantly changing regulation environment, it pays to have the right advice and assistance.

Solution

What is GOST R certification? GOST is the Russian word for "norm", and R stands for Russia. For most products, certification is needed if you wish to sell them in Russia. The main products concerned are materials in contact with food and human beings; industrial equipment for food, chemical, oil & gas, construction and other industries; mechanical and electrical goods. Also concerned are consumer products such as foodstuffs, textiles and clothes, cosmetics and perfumery, domestic goods and toys. The certificate can be valid for a one-time-only shipment or for a period of 1 or 3 years.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

  • Are all products concerned?

    Not all goods need a GOST R certificate; some are exempt. Our local Russian experts can advise you on which of your products need it. They can also help you to obtain the necessary certificates with a minimum of delay.

  • What happens if my products are exempt?

    Even if the product to be imported is not subject to mandatory GOST R certification, an importer or exporter can present a GOST R Release Letter to prove that this product type does not require mandatory GOST R certification. This formal confirmation may be requested by Russian customs authorities during customs clearance. It can also be used as a powerful marketing tool, because it independently confirms the quality or technical standard of your product.
