Russian GOST R Declaration for Medium Voltage Drives
Medium voltage drives exported to Russia are subject to mandatory certification of conformity. In order to pass the customs clearance, the equipment needs to receive documents of conformity that prove its compliance with local technical regulations.
Medium voltage drives with voltage more than 1kV are subject to Russian GOST R declaration.
Russian GOST R declaration confirms product compliance with Russian national technical regulation. The declaration is valid only for Russia and is required to pass customs clearance and to release the product into Russian market.
To obtain a declaration GOST R for medium voltage equipment, the following items need to be provided:
- Signed applicant contract between the manufacturer and his local representative
- Equipment manual or data sheet in Russian language
- HS code
It takes 2-3 weeks to issue a declaration GOST R. Maximum validity period of GOST R declaration is 3 years.
Medium voltage drives with voltage more than 1kV that are exported to other countries than Russia need to receive national certification of conformity in accordance with local regulations of country of destination.
Low voltage drives with voltage below 1000V are subject to EAC certificate of conformity with TR CU 004/2011 “On safety of low voltage devices”. Low voltage drives are not subject to GOST R regulations.
