Russia GOST R & CU TR

n February, 2013 the national Russian certification system GOST R and national Russian technical regulation “On Safety of Machinery Equipment” were withdrawn.

Simultaneously, the new Customs Union Technical Regulation (CU TR) for most electrical products was enforced in Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan.

Earlier issued GOST R certificates will be valid until March 15, 2015.  After that, the new EAC mark must be used.

The Common Production Mark will be used for marking of products in the Customs Union (CU) and Eurasian Economic Community (EAEC or EurAsEC).  The Customs Union is made up of Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus.  EAEC countries include the CU countries, plus Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.

The Mark is analogous with the European Union’s CE mark for product safety.

Of note: There are a number of changes in the CU TR for manufacturers of mass-produced products.
Here are a couple of the most significant:

  • The certification applicant must have a formal relationship (contract) with a Russian representative legal entity.  With GOST, this was not required.
  • Mandatory factory audits are performed by a Russian certification body.  With GOST, a test lab could do this.

MET partners with Russian ELMAS Group for market access to Russia and CIS Countries. ELMAS  is a Russian-accredited Authorized Assessment Body and can provide product certification services for any North American company planning to access the Russian Federation (RF) market.
