Background For GOST-R
With the intention of protecting the Health & Safety of their people, the Russian Government enacted legislation during 1993, requiring many products to be certified and introduced the GOST-R system of certification.

About GOST-R Certificate
In order to be allowed onto the Russian market, numerous products are subject to Russian mandatory certification. The most common documents needed for Russia are the GOST-R Certificate of Conformity (COC) or Declaration of Conformity (DOC) assuring compliance with Russian safety requirements.
The GOST-R system is monitored jointly by the Federal Agency for Technical Regulation and Metrology (abbreviated as Rostekhregulirovaniye) and Federal Customs Service of Russia. A Certificate of Conformity as well as Declaration of Conformity is a written confirmation that products meet Russian safety regulations and is required at point of entry for Customs clearance (CoC only) as well as a prerequisite for placing the product onto the Russian market (CoC or DoC). CoC is issued and DoC is required with a Certification Body.
The mandatory GOST R certificate, including the serial production GOST-R Certificate of Conformity is issued following technical evaluation of your Company's products to ensure compliance to Russian safety regulations. The evaluation procedure may include evaluation of technical documentation, surveillance visits, sampling, analysis, type testing, factory audits and sometimes certification of your quality management system.
