GOST R certification - is a national product and service certification scheme of Russian Federation. Some years ago GOST R certification was obligatory for major part of the products but now it is mostly replaced by new EAC certification / declaration scheme that is based on the Technical Regilations of Custom Union. For some products (that are not subjects of Custom Union Technical Regulations) this type of national certification is still mandatory (e.g. chemicals).
GOST R certification scheme owner is RusStandard - Federal Agency of Techical Regulation and Standartizaiton of Russian Federation. Tha status of "state owned" certification scheme gives additional recognition and benefits to the organizations that voluntary certified in GOST R system.
GOST R cerification can be conducted according to national and industry standards as well as normative documents of producer itself. When GOST R is used as voluntary conformity assessment scheme that does not replace obligatory EAC coformity assessment (see details), it can be effective tool for entering Russian market.

Scope of GOST R certification
In distinction from the EAC mandatory certification and declaration, which is carried out solely for compliance with the Technical Regulations requirements of the Customs Union and in cases where certification or declaration is mandatory, certification of GOST R can be conducted for compliance with any national and international standards, as well as internal standards and technical conditions of the manufacturer.
Products that are subjects to mandatory national certification in the GOST R system are certified for compliance with national Russian national standards (e.g. GOST R, GOST, etc.) in accordance with a legally established procedure.
In addition, it is also possible to obtain a Certificate of Conformity in the GOST R system for the services provided, that is nota subject of EAC certification and EAC declaration.
How do we work:
We get information from the manufacturer about projected products supply to the EAEU market (download application form)
We hold a preliminary legislative requirements review for products certification and provide the client with information not only about the general order and conditions for conducting voluntary or mandatory national certification in the GOST R system, but also with information on the mandatory requirements that this product must comply with (e.g., state registration medicines and chemicals), compulsory licensing, membership in Self-regulated industrila organizations (SROs), etc.
Based on the received information and agreed with the client, we issue GOST R certificates for the products or services we are providing and, if it is necessary, we provide mandatory EAC certification or EAC declarations within the requirements of the Technical Regulations of the Customs Union.
According to the Russian current legislation and practive, the number of officially registered voluntary certification schemes exeed 1000. In the framework of these schemes organizations, including foreign ones, can hold voluntary products certification, certification of services or management systems. At once, it is important and sometimes critical to understand that such certification, according to the law, does not replace the mandatory EAC certification.
Considering diversity, credibility to the big ammount of the Conformity Certificates issued under voluntary certification schemes is low in the market.
However,becourse of GOST R system is the oldest in Russia, and its founder is the Federal Agency for Technical Regulation and Metrology of the Russian Federation (Rosstandart), the credibility of certificates issued exactly in the GOST R system is high enough, the requirements for the accessibility of these certificates are often included in procurement and tender documentation in a variety of industries. Please be remined that certification in the GOST R system is still mandatory for such products as chemicals.
