Who can be an applicant for certificates in Russia?
In accordance with the legislation, some approval documents require an Applicant who is the resident of the Customs Union or Russia, so the foreign manufacturer cannot be applicant. Note that if representative office in Russia is not a legal resident of the country, it may not be the Applicant for Certification.
This situation may seem quite complicated. That is why we decided to dig into this question. So who can be an applicant for different approval documents?
The following documents require an Applicant that is a legal entity registered in the territory of the Customs Union (Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia or Kyrgyzstan):
- Certificate/Declaration of compliance with Technical Regulation of the Customs Union (TR CU)
- State Registration certificate (Hygienic certificate), from 2019 CU applicant will be required but we recommend to use CU applicant already now
The following documents require an Applicant that is registered in Russia:
- GOST R Declaration
- FSS Notification
- TELECOM declaration
A foreign manufacturer can be an Applicant for the following types of certificates:
- GOST R Certificate
- Fire Safety Certificate
Our company offers the Local Representative Service to provide foreign producers with the necessary support for the certification procedure. Thus, manufacturer will not depend on one of the customers and the Certificate/Declaration will belong to the manufacturer enabling him to sell his products to all his customers.
