Certification and Delocalisation to Russia


Some important changes have been introduced to the system of attestation / certification of products for these markets.

In the countries relating to the Custom Union the new Technical Regulations have entered into force. The new regulation defines new certification procedures for products on the basis of harmonized schemes that allow the issue of valid certificates in the three countries and a new conformity mark.

This process of regulatory evolution is similar to the European approach that has led to the re-accreditation of the certification bodies and qualified staff.
