Is GOST K and EAC certification the same approval type?
We often receive question whether the GOST K and EAC certification are the same approval type. We would like to clarify it.
GOST K certificate is a national approval document that is valid only in Kazakhstan while EAC certificate is an approval valid for the whole territory of the Customs Union. After examining the characteristics of the product, we define which approval type is applicable.
The maximum validity of GOST K certificate is 3 years. Sometimes it is required to conduct mandatory sample tests or site audit. Certificate of Conformity of Kazakhstan is sufficient for customs clearance and product sale. Both residents and foreign manufacturer can apply for this document.
EAC certification can be valid for 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 years or for a batch. The sample tests or site audit may also be required. According to legislation, only resident of the Customs Union can be an applicant for EAC certification. If necessary, WWG offers Local Representative Service to provide foreign producers with the necessary support.
If the product is subject to EAC certification, it usually does not require GOST K certification
